The problem of realizability of the second-order turbulence closure models (parametrization schemes) is addressed through the consideration of the so-called “stability functions”. The emphasis is on the turbulence kinetic energy–scalar variance (TKESV) closure scheme that carries prognostic transport equations for the turbulence kinetic energy (TKE...

The problem of boundary conditions for the variances and covariances of scalar quantities (e.g., temperature and humidity) at the underlying surface is considered. If the surface is treated as horizontally homogeneous, Monin–Obukhov similarity suggests the Neumann boundary conditions that set the surface fluxes of scalar variances and covariances t...

The nighttime high-latitude stably stratified atmospheric boundary layer (SBL) is computationally simulated using high–Reynolds number large-eddy simulation on meshes varying from 2003 to 10243 over 9 physical hours for surface cooling rates Cr = [0.25, 1] K h−1. Continuous weakly stratified turbulence is maintained for this range of cooling, and t...

Lakes can influence regional climate, yet most general circulation models have, at best, simple and largely untested representations of lakes. We developed the Lake, Ice, Snow, and Sediment Simulator (LISSS) for inclusion in the land-surface component (CLM4) of an earth system model (CESM1). The existing CLM4 lake model performed poorly at all site...

Two alternative depth scales have been proposed for the case of a stably stratified boundary layer (SBL) where static stability is due to the surface buoyancy flux Bs. Kitaigorodskii in 1960 assumed that the Earth's rotation is no longer important as static stability becomes strong and that the SBL depth scales with the Obukhov length , u* being th...

Modelling lakes in Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) is important to produce accurate evaporation rates and surface temperature forecasts. Lake depth is a crucial external parame- ter for the implementation of lake models into NWP systems, since it controls the dynamical range of lake temperature amplitudes on diurnal to seasonal time scales.

Quantitative precipitation forecasting (QPF) is an important reason to run a numerical weather prediction model - for forecasters and customers. Unfortunately, precipitation is also a very difficult parameter to quantitatively forecast. There are indications from verification and from forecasters in various COSMO countries, that the COSMO model - l...

Lakes and other inland water bodies can, in certain areas, compose a large fraction of the land surface. Inland waters have an important role in determining local and regional climates, primarily because of large differences in albedo, heat capacity, roughness, and energy exchange compared to vegetated land surfaces. Despite the radically different...

Turbulence is ubiquitous in the earth’s atmosphere. Its spatial scales range from many tens of kilometres to a few millimetres. A wide assortment of turbulent eddies of different size and shape lies within this range. These include breeze circulations, storms, clouds, plumes and rolls in the planetary boundary layer (PBL), and eddies in urban stree...

Convection in an ice-covered lake, driven by the absorption of solar radiation, is investigated by means of temperature microstructure technique. This type of convection typically occurs in spring, when melting snow on the ice cover enables solar radiation to penetrate into the water body. The diurnal dynamics of the stratification system of five d...

Penetrative convection is discussed where the instability is driven by radiative heating of water below the temperature of maximum density. Convection of this type occurs in ice-covered freshwater lakes in late spring, when the snow cover vanishes and solar radiation is absorbed beneath the ice cover. The vertical temperature structure, bulk mixed...

The paper extends Deardorff's general structure parameterization for a shear-free convective boundary layer.
