Tracer Experiment (and Colored Moisture Analysis; CMA)

General Info.

  • Change "ntrac_" in define.h.
  • ntrac_=2 is taken by ozone, so that numbers more than 3 are available.
  • Tracers will not be output in grib files by default. subpgb.F should be modified to include them to grib output files.
  • Tracers will be output to sigma files (sig.ftXX).
  • By default, tracers (ntrac_>3) are just air-equivalent particles. Will not be diminished nor increased without certain modification.

General Info for CMA

  • Modification is required to add the same behavior as water particularly by precipitation processes (convection, shallow convection, and large scale condensation), and evaporation process from surface boundary.

Specification for CMA

  • New subroutines
    • None
  • Modified subroutines
    • moninp.F : for evaporation process from surface boundary
    • gbphys.F : for precipitation processes.
    • subpgb.F : for output.
