7.4 Convection

7.4.1 Introduction

Two sets of convective mass fluxes are avialble:

  1. Offline computed convective massfluxes in TMPP based on [Tiedtke, 1989].
  2. Archived by ECMWF for ERA40.

In [Olivié et al., 2004] TM simulations have been comapred with radon measurements. Main conclusions:

See also [Olivié, 2005].

Twan van Noije compared TM simulations with ozone measurements, but did not found significant improvements.

A problem with using offline compute convective fluxes is the missmatch with archived convective precepation.
