The CloudConvFlux collection

The CloudConvFlux collection contains diagnostics for mass fluxes in cloud convection.

Here is a sample definition section for the CH4 collection.

  • If this collection is not already present in the HISTORY.rc file in the GEOS-Chem run directory for your selected simulation, you can copy and paste this into your HISTORY.rc file and edit accordingly.
  • To prevent an individual field from being included in the diagnostic output, place a comment character # in front of the field name.
  • Please see our Legend for History diagnostics page for more information about each of the collection tags.
  CloudConvFlux.template:     '%y4%m2%d2_%h2%n2z.nc4',
  CloudConvFlux.format:       'CFIO',
  CloudConvFlux.frequency:    00000100 000000
  CloudConvFlux.duration:     00000100 000000
  CloudConvFlux.mode:         'time-averaged'
  CloudConvFlux.fields:       'CloudConvFlux_?ADV?           ', 'GIGCchem',
::

This table describes the diagnostic quantities belonging to the CloudConvFlux collection:

Diagnostic name Description Units Wildcards Simulations Notes Bpch equiv.
CloudConvFlux_<spcname> Mass change due to cloud convection kg/s
  • ?ADV?
  • ?GAS?
  • ?WET?
  • all simulations

The WetLossConv collection

The WetLossConv collection contains diagnostics fluxes of soluble species lost to wet scaveinging in convective updrafts.

Here is a sample definition section for the WetLossConv collection.

  • If this collection is not already present in the HISTORY.rc file in the GEOS-Chem run directory for your selected simulation, you can copy and paste this into your HISTORY.rc file and edit accordingly.
  • To prevent an individual field from being included in the diagnostic output, place a comment character # in front of the field name.

  WetLossConv.template:       '%y4%m2%d2_%h2%n2z.nc4',
  WetLossConv.format:         'CFIO',
  WetLossConv.frequency:      00000100 000000
  WetLossConv.duration:       00000100 000000
  WetLossConv.mode:           'time-averaged'
  WetLossConv.fields:         'WetLossConv_?WET?             ', 'GIGCchem',
                              'WetLossConvFrac_?WET?         ', 'GIGCchem',

WetLossConv_<spcname> Loss of soluble species scavenged by cloud updrafts in moist convection kg/s
  • ?WET?
  • all simulations
WetLossConvFrac_<spcname> Fraction of species scavenged by cloud updrafts in moist convection 1
  • ?WET?
  • all simulations

The WetLossLS collection

The WetLossLS collection contains diagnostics fluxes of soluble species lost to rainout and washout in large-scale wet deposition.

Here is a sample definition section for the WetLossConv collection.

  • If this collection is not already present in the HISTORY.rc file in the GEOS-Chem run directory for your selected simulation, you can copy and paste this into your HISTORY.rc file and edit accordingly.
  • To prevent an individual field from being included in the diagnostic output, place a comment character # in front of the field name.
