Incorporation of a gravity wave momentum deposition parameterization into the Venus Thermosphere General Circulation Model ( VTGCM )

Abstract

[1] The gravity wave-drag parameterization of Alexander and Dunkerton (1999) was implemented into a Venus Thermosphere General Circulation Model (VTGCM) to investigate breaking gravity waves as a source of momentum deposition in Venus’ thermosphere. Previously, deceleration of zonal jets on the morning and evening terminators in models was accomplished via… (More)
