1 Coupling TM5 to IFS within the GEMS-framework Frans Alkemade Henk Eskes (credits to Arjo Segers, Bram Bregman, Maarten Krol) GEMS Kick-off Meeting, Hamburg,

2 Overview Description of TM5 Adapting TM5 for use in a coupled system with IFS, based on our PRISM experience The route forward & further forward. Some (rather trivial) conclusions.

3 TM5 – Tracer Model version 5 Global offline CTM History: TM2 (Martin Heimann, MPI-Meteorology), TM3 (IMAU, KNMI, CWI) : + hybride sigma-pressure levels TM5 (IMAU, KNMI, SRON, Univ. Krete, JRC, NOAA) + parallel + zooming

4 Physics in TM5 Advection: slopes [Russel and Lerner, 1987] or second moments [Prather, 1989] Convection: [Tiedke, 1987] Turbulent mixing: [Holtslag and Boville, 1993, Vogelesang and Holtslag, 1996] Chemistry schemes: Troposhere, based on CBM-IV (25 layers, 26 transp.tracers) Stratosphere-troposphere (33 layers, 44 transp.tracers) Parameterized ozone Tracers: radon, SF6, methane, CO2,..

5 Horizontal zooming Arbitrary zoom regions Two-way nesting Typical runs with 3 level nesting

6 Parallelisation Advection, diffusion, etc: parallel over tracers Chemistry: parallel over layers --> limitation to processors for reasonable speedup --> typical experiments run on 9 processors

7 Classical TM needs Meteo preprocessing IFS MARS TMPP TM5 CTM TM5

8 TMPP (TM PreProcessor): Input from MARS: Log.surf.pressure, vorticity, divergence Temperature, humidity Cloud fields Surface fields Horizontal Interpolation: spectral/gg -> lat/lon Vertical collection of levels Output: Massfluxes through gridbox boundaries Gridded temperature, humidity, etc

9 To couple TM5 to IFS, the simple GEMS-adaptation would – in theory - look like this: IFS OASIS4 TMPP OASIS4 TM5

10 However, within the PRISM project TM5 has already been adapted to a coupled system with ECHAM: Interpolation routines from TMPP were copied into TM5 The PRISM version of TM5 is now able to: Read meteo fields from disk … … or from memory arrays (PRISM interface) Interpolate from spectral/gg to lat/lon Meteo input is 'embarrassingly' parallel: each processor a different field …

11 With the essentials of TMPP fitted inside TM5, it would be possible to use the following configuration: IFS OASIS4 TM5 But another trick borrowed from our PRISM approach would be to compile TM5 into a library, which is called from a small separate program, chem (adapted from a PRISM toy model), that would handle all field exchanges with IFS. Further TM5-development can then take place completely separated and independent from GEMS-issues: IFS OASIS4 chem {TM5-library}

12 The route forward: We have started with the stable tropospheric version (CBM4 + aerosols) presently running at ECMWF The interpolation routines from TMPP are being build into this TM5, yielding TM5+ The explicit calculation of the chemical production- and loss terms for O3, CO, NO2, SO2, and HCHO (GRG; Global Reactive Gases) will be added to the model

13 The route further forward: In the work plan proposal (dd 03/06/2005) step 2 involves the coupling between a toy-CTM model and IFS. Presumably all relevant fields / arrays will be transferred to and from this toy model via OASIS4. TM5+ can than be compiled into a library, and called from this toy-model.

14 The parallel development route: In the mean time other people in the TM- community will continue working on the stratospheric version and on further parallelisation. When a new version becomes available it can be compiled into a library that simply replaces the earlier library.

15 Conclusions We have started. But some work still has to be done. The work-plan seems to be a good way forward.
