Speaker:  Youssef Wehbe

Accurate and timely monitoring of precipitation remains a challenge, particularly in hyper-arid regions such as the United Arab Emirates (UAE), characterized by complex land-atmosphere dynamics and inadequate hydrological monitoring networks. The proposed work is divided into three work packages aiming to (i) improve the representation of hydrologic and (ii) atmospheric processes in the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model, and (iii) develop a multi-source merged precipitation product over the UAE. The methodology incorporates numerical modeling, remote sensing, and both ground-based and in-situ airborne measurements of key hydro-meteorological variables. The WRF model, along with its enhanced hydrological component (WRF-Hydro), are fully-coupled in a nested configuration over the UAE and compared to standalone WRF simulations during an extreme weather event. In addition to the physics-based WRF model assessments, two multivariate regressive approaches, namely, Geographically Weighted Regression (GWR) and Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs), are employed to improve the accuracy of the latest GPM IMERG V6B locally over the UAE. The datasets used include daily observations from a network of 65 rain gauges, 4 ground-based weather radars, topography, and soil moisture retrievals from ongoing satellite missions.

Title: Convective Self-Aggregation and Climate Sensitivity in a Multi-Model Ensemble of Radiative-Convective Equilibrium Simulations

Date: Tuesday, April 7, 2020

Time: 11 am - 12 pm

Abstract:  The Radiative-Convective Equilibrium Model Intercomparison Project (RCEMIP) is an intercomparison of multiple types of numerical models, including atmospheric general circulation models (GCMs), cloud-resolving models (CRMs), global cloud-resolving models (GCRMs), large eddy simulation models (LES), and single column models (SCMs), configured in radiative-convective equilibrium (RCE). RCE is an idealization of the tropical atmosphere that has long been used to study basic questions in climate science, and is employed here to investigated the response of clouds and convective activity to warming, cloud feedbacks and climate sensitivity, and the aggregation of convection and its role in climate.

The first results are presented from the RCEMIP ensemble of more than 30 different models. The robustness of the RCE state across the RCEMIP ensemble is assessed, in terms of mean profiles of temperature, humidity, and cloudiness, and the occurrence of self-aggregation is identified. While there are significant differences across the RCEMIP ensemble in the representation of cloudiness and its sensitivity to SST, all models (except one version of one model) exhibit self-aggregation and there is agreement that self-aggregation acts to dry the atmosphere and reduce high cloudiness. The dependence of the degree of self-aggregation on SST and the resulting influence on the climate sensitivity of the RCE state is also compared across the RCEMIP ensemble. There is no clear tendency for either an increase or decrease in self-aggregation with warming, but changes in self-aggregation with warming partially explain the extreme spread in simulated climate sensitivities across the RCEMIP ensemble.
