Overview

Each wet-depositing species in GEOS-Chem contains one or more of the following properties, depending on whether the species is a gas or aerosol:

Properties for aerosol species

Quantity Units Description
WD_Is_HNO3 1 Flag to determine if the species is HNO3.
  • Rainout/washout of HNO3 needs to be handled separately from other gas-phase species.
  • WD_Is_HNO3 will be automatically determined, depending on the value of Name.
WD_Is_SO2 1 Flag to determine if the species is SO2.
  • Rainout/washout of HNO3 separately from other gas-phase species.
  • WD_Is_SO2 will be automatically determined, depending on the value of Name.
WD_Is_H2SO4 1 Flag to determine if the species is H2SO4.
  • Rainout/washout of H2SO4 needs to be handled separately from other gas-phase species.
  • WD_Is_H2SO4 will be automatically determined, depending on the value of Name.
  • H2SO4 is a species in TOMAS aerosol microphysics only.
WD_CoarseAer 1 Set this flag to indicate that the species is a coarse aerosol (i.e. having a radius > 1 μm)
  • Washout of coarse aerosols is handled separately from the washout of fine aerosols.
WD_AerScavEff 1 Specifies the aerosol scavenging efficiency. This factor multiplies F, the fraction of aerosol species that is lost to convective updraft scavenging (cf Eq. 2 of Jacob et al 2000).
  • For most aerosol species, WD_AerScavEff = 1.0.
  • For secondary organic aerosol species, WD_AerScavEff = 0.8.
  • For hydrophobic species (e.g. MOPO), WD_AerScavEff = 0.0.

WD_AerScavEff is applied in routine COMPUTE_F of GEOS-Chem module wetscav_mod.F90.

WD_KcScaleFac 1 Specifies a temperature-dependent scale factor that is used to multiply K (aka Kc), the rate constant for conversion of cloud condensate to precipitation (cf Eq. 1 of Jacob et al, 2000).

WD_KcScaleFac is defined as a 3-element vector, where:

  • WD_KcScaleFac(1) multiplies K when T < 237 K.
  • WD_KcScaleFac(2) multiplies K when 237 K <= T < 258 K.
  • WD_KcScaleFac(3) multiplies K when T >= 258K.

This allows us to better simulate scavenging by snow, where, for most species, we need to halve the K rate when 237 K <= T < 258 K. This can be easily done by setting the value KcScaleFac(2) = 0.5.

WD_KcScaleFac is applied in routine F_AEROSOL of GEOS_Chem module GeosCore/wetscav_mod.F.

WD_RainoutEff 1 Specifies a temperature-dependent scale factor that is used to multiply Fi (aka RAINFRAC), the fraction of species scavenged by rainout (cf Eq. 1 of Jacob et al, 2000).

WD_RainoutEff is defined as a 3-element vector, where:

  • WD_RainoutEff(1) multiplies Fi when T < 237 K.
  • WD_RainoutEff(2) multiplies Fi when 237 K <= T < 258 K.
  • WD_RainoutEff(3) multiplies Fi when T >= 258K.

This allows us to better simulate scavenging by snow and impaction scavenging of BC. For most species, we need to be able to turn off rainout when 237 K <= T < 258 K. This can be easily done by setting RainoutEff(2) = 0.

WD_RainoutEff is applied in routine APPLY_RAINOUT_EFF of GEOS_Chem module GeosCore/wetscav_mod.F.

NOTE: For secondary organic aerosol species, the maximum value of WD_RainoutEff will be 0.8 instead of 1.0.

Properties for gas-phase species

Quantity Units Description
WD_LiqAndGas 1 True/False flag indicating whether the ice-to-gas ratio needs to be computed for by co-condensation.

.

WD_ConvFacI2G 1 Specifies the conversion factor (i.e. the ratio of sticking coefficients on the ice surface) for computing the ice-to-gas-ratio by co-condensation (cf. Eq. 9 of Jacob et al, 2000).
  • WD_ConvFacI2G only needs to be specified for those species having WD_LiqAndGas = TRUE.
WD_RetFactor 1 Specifies the retention efficiency Ri of tracer in the liquid cloud condensate as it is converted to precipitation. (Ri < 1 accounts for volatization during riming.) The retention factor is defined in Eq. 1 of Jacob et al, 2000.

Notes

We follow the algorithm of Qiaoqiao Wang et al (2014) for scavenging by snow and impaction scavenging for BC and IN, namely when 237 K <= T < 258 K:

  1. Multiply Kc—the rate at which cloud condensate changes into precipitation— by 0.5, and
  2. Allow black carbon, dust, HNO3, 210Pb, and 7Bethe following species, which are considered to be IN, to be rained out (aka "cold cloud scavenging").
  3. Do not allow any other soluble aerosol species to rain out (i.e. set the rainout fraction to zero).
