Recent updates to nested GEOS-Chem

Fixes to Streets emissions for model years 2005 and earlier

This update was tested in the 1-month benchmark simulation v9-01-03f and approved on 17 Feb 2012.

We discovered two bugs in the implementation of Streets emissions for the nested model. These will affect all nested simulations at least through v9-01-02 for model years 2005 and earlier.

1. The nested model was using Streets 2000 emissions for years 2001-2005 instead of Streets 2006 emissions, which the global model has been using since v8-03-01. This will be updated in GEOS-Chem v9-01-03.

2. Streets 2000 anthropogenic emissions include NOx, CO, and SO2 from ships, which leads to double-counting of ship emissions as well as improper treatment of NOx emissions. This problem is described in more detail on the ship emissions page. This will be updated in GEOS-Chem v9-01-03.

I’m happy to report that we’ve finally implemented all the bug fixes and necessary input files to successfully run the 0.25 nested_CH full chemistry simulation on the Tsinghua platform. We’ve done a 10-day test run and the simulation results look reasonable, so I thought it’s a good time to submit our code updates to the GC Support Team so that they can be incorporated in the next code release.
Attached please find a summary list of the code fixes we’ve implemented on the basis of v9-02 public release. The codes and input data are located at ftp://166.111.42.70/share/v9-02_CH025/.

1. I updated the Headers/CMN_SIZE_mod.F to define IGLOB, JGLOB for the European region at 0.25x0.3125 resolution by adding similar code as for CH and NA. The correct numbers are:
     INTEGER            :: IGLOB      = 177
     INTEGER            :: JGLOB      = 115
2. Then I got another compilation error in strat_chem_mod.F90
A. I found that the problem was in line 1613, which was only for CH and NA:
 #if defined( NESTED_CH ) || defined( NESTED_NA )
So I added the European part and now it is:
 #if defined( NESTED_CH ) || defined( NESTED_NA )|| defined(NESTED_EU)
B. Lines 1603-1609 were:
 #elif defined( GRID025x03125 )
 #if defined( NESTED_CH )
     INTEGER, PARAMETER   :: J30S = 1, J30N = 161
 #elif defined( NESTED_NA )
     INTEGER, PARAMETER   :: J30S = 1, J30N = 161
 #endif
I added the European part and now it is :
 #elif defined( GRID025x03125 )
 #if defined( NESTED_CH )
     INTEGER, PARAMETER   :: J30S = 1, J30N = 161
 #elif defined( NESTED_NA )
     INTEGER, PARAMETER   :: J30S = 1, J30N = 161
 #elif defined( NESTED_EU )
     INTEGER, PARAMETER   :: J30S = 1, J30N = 115
 #endif
However, I think NA should be 202 and not 161 (which is the grid number for CH)!
Compilation is now successfully ended!! So happy with that:) I send you attached the routines. Unfortunately I get errors when I tried to run the model.

Anna is following up with the Nested Model Working Group to resolve issues encountered while trying to run the 0.25° x 0.3125° European nested grid simulation. Development is ongoing.
