Explicit treatment of Criegee intermediates generated from alkene ozonolysis, and of their subsequent reactions with H2O, SO2, and other species, as described by [http://atmoschem.umn.edu/sites/atmoschem.umn.edu/files/millet_2015.pdf Millet et al. (2015)].

Elo&iuml;se Marais has streamlined Dylan Millet's mechanism to reduce species and speed up computation. This involved removing explicit treatment of some reactive intermediates. This streamlined version is currently undergoing validation.

Development Priorities

Priority Description Status
Dicarbonyls simulation Merge May Fu's dicarbonyl simulation with Caltech isoprene chemistry (which is now standard) Implement this once flexible chemistry scheme is in place.
3D VOC source for tagged CO simulation and enhanced tagging of secondary CO Secondary CO source in tagged CO simulation is 2D and inconsistent with full chemistry treatment Under development (J. Fisher, Univ. of Wollongong)
HCN simulation Currently out of date. Update based on Li et al. (ACP, 9, 8531–8543, 2009). Under development (D. Jones, Univ. of Toronto)
Updated LAI We are currently using a MODIS LAI product that has only been generated through 2008. Need to find or create suitable replacement. Under development (K. Bowman, JPL; F. Boersma, KNMI)
PAN / organics updates This simulation includes improved treatment of many NMVOCs. There are also changes to how biomass burning emissions are incorporated into the model. The improved PAN simulation, which is based on v9.01.01, has been merged with v9.02h and should be ready to be implemented with v10 when requested by support team. Ready to go in (E. Fischer, CSU)

GEIA anthropogenic scaling factors

This update was tested in the 1-month benchmark simulation v9-01-02h and approved on 12 Aug 2011.

A bug was discovered with the annual scale factors for anthropogenic emissions that get applied in anthroems.f (FLIQCO2), which take a ratio between the base year for the GEIA emissions (1985) and the simulation year. For southern Africa (Botswana region) 1985 scale value is abnormally low (<0.03), so that the (current year):1985 ratio ends up being very large (>500) and giving unrealistically high CO and hydrocarbon emissions.

In the scaling file (../GEOS_1x1/anth_scale_factors_200911/CO-AnnualScalar.geos.1x1), scale factors over Botswana increase by a factor of >100 between 1985 and 1990 (i.e. nearly tripling every year), and then more gradually and reasonably after that. As a fix I've created an updated version of the file CO-AnnualScalar.geos.1x1, which is here. The new file is the same as the old one except that the offending values over Botswana for 1985 have been replaced with their 1990 values. This brings things more in line with the surrounding countries.

Here is a visual summary of the scaling factors with the old file and the updated file.

It's possible there is a more accurate way to do this (e.g. scaling the 1990 values down by some amount to get back to 1985) but until someone looks at this specific region in detail (in which case one may not want to use GEIA anthropogenic emissions anyway) I think this is a good approach and should get rid of the problem.

Emily Fischer ran some comparisons before and after the fix. She writes:

I have posted some comparison plots for you to look through. I did a one-month test run using the file that you sent me last week. The "before" run has my updates to the ocean acetone source/sink included. For the hydrocarbons, I have before and after plots for surface mixing ratios. Note the very different scales in some cases. Your fix certainly is an improvement. I have included standard difference plots for CO, PAN and acetone.

Dicarbonyls

The discussion about known issues in the dicarbonyls simulation has now been moved to our separate Dicarbonyls simulation wiki page.

MEGAN

  1. A description of MEGAN as implemented in GEOS-Chem up to v8-02-03 is posted HERE.
  2. The discussion about the implementation of MEGAN 2.1 into GEOS-Chem v8-02-04 has been moved to a separate MEGAN biogenic emissions wiki page.
  3. An update to the latest MEGAN 2.1 as described in Guenther et al. (2012) is now available and discussed here.

Criegee intermediates

This update was validated with 1-month benchmark simulation v11-01d and 1-year benchmark simulation v11-01d-Run1. This version was approved on 12 Dec 2015.

Explicit treatment of Criegee intermediates generated from alkene ozonolysis, and of their subsequent reactions with H2O, SO2, and other species, as described by Millet et al. (2015).

Eloïse Marais has streamlined Dylan Millet's mechanism to reduce species and speed up computation. This involved removing explicit treatment of some reactive intermediates. This streamlined version is currently undergoing validation.

Add missing Criegee intermediate reaction

This fix was included in GEOS-Chem 12.0.0.

Xin Chen (UMN) reported one Criegee intermediate reaction is missing in the GEOS-Chem chemical mechanisms.

CH2OO + CO = CH2O  :                         GCARR(1.20E-15, 0.0E+00, 0.0);       {2015/09/25; Millet2015; DBM,EAM}

This reaction has been missing since the original Criegee intermediates implementation in GEOS-Chem v11-01.
