Sensitivity of Simulated Climate to Conservation of Momentum in Gravity Wave Drag Parameterization

Abstract

The Canadian Middle Atmosphere Model is used to examine the sensitivity of simulated climate to conservation of momentum in gravity wave drag parameterization. Momentum conservation requires that the parameterized gravity wave momentum flux at the top of the model be zero and corresponds to the physical boundary condition of no momentum flux at the top of… (More)
