The Effect of Imposed Drying on Parameterized Deep Convection

  title={The Effect of Imposed Drying on Parameterized Deep Convection},
  author={Adam H Sobel and Gilles Bellon},
This paper examines the influence of imposed drying, intended to represent horizontal advection of dry air, on parameterized deep convection interacting with large-scale dynamics in a single-column model framework. Two single-column models, one based on the NASA Goddard Earth Observing System general circulation model version 5 (GEOS5) and the other developed by Bony and Emanuel, are run in weak temperature gradient mode. Drying is imposed by relaxation of the specific humidity field toward… CONTINUE READING
