Title: Why Molecular Structure Matters in the Chemistry of Atmospheric Organic Aerosol Formation

Abstract: Laboratory studies provide much of the fundamental data on reaction kinetics, products, and mechanisms that are needed to understand atmospheric chemistry and to develop models that are used to establish air quality regulations and to predict the effects of human activities on climate . In this talk I will describe research in my laboratory that focuses on the chemical and physical processes by which oxidized products of atmospheric reactions of organic compounds form microscopic aerosol particles.  Studies are conducted in large- volume environmental chambers in which experiments are designed to simulate atmospheric chemistry, and a diverse array of analytical methods are used to obtain information on gas and particle chemical composition, heterogeneous/multiphase reaction rates and equilibria, and gas - particle-wall interactions . I will focus in particular on studies we have conducted to better understand the ways in which the molecular structure of organic compounds influences their atmospheric chemistry and tendency to form aerosol particles

Title: Aerosol-Cloud-Radiation Interactions in the Arctic: Imprtance of the ice nucleating particles (INP)

Abstract: Cloud microstructure is strongly linked to the aerosols and their ability to nucleate liquid water (CCN) or ice (INP). Cloud phase is mostly determined by the aerosol thermodynamic properties. It is therefore important to understand these aerosol-cloud interactions since they determine cloud phase and cloud radiative forcing. In this talk, I will first give a brief overview of the aerosol indirect radiative effects and then focus on the INP deactivation effect within ice clouds and its effect on clouds and radiation. Simulations and observations of the deactivation effect during the ISDAC Campaign in April 2008 will be presented. Results show the importance of the INP parameterization used in models and the need to consider the chemical composition of the aerosols. In a second modelling study, the Weather and Research Forecasting Model coupled with chemistry (WRF-CHEM) is used to simulate the INP concentration observed during the NETCARE field experiment that took place over the Canadian Arctic near Baffin Island in July 2014. WRF-CHEM simulates several gases and particle matters relevant for ice nucleation. Using this information combined to parameterizations based on field and laboratory studies, it is shown that the model simulates within a factor 5 to 30 the observed INP concentration depending on the ice nucleation parameterization used. Results suggest that large particles are the main contributor to the INP concentration suggesting that a bin scheme for the simulation of the aerosol size distribution is needed to get more realistic INP values.

Stockholm University, Sweden

Arctic climate is ultimately determined by a balance between meridional heat transport into the area, and radiation heat loss at the top of the atmosphere over the same area. Since the net radiation loss is due to small-scale processes parameterized in models, and the meridional heat flux is due to larger scale atmospheric dynamics resolved by the models, the two has usually been studied separately. In this seminar this concept will be called into question.

In an episode during the Arctic Clouds in Summer Experiment (ACSE) in the summer of 2014, warm air from the Siberian mainland flowed in over melting sea-ice in the East-Siberian Sea for over a week. As the ~25 °C warm air flowed over the melting surface, maintained at the melting point, a strong surface inversion formed in which dense fog also formed. This resulted in a positive net longwave radiation while the sensible heat flux was downward. Although solar radiation was attenuated by the fog, this led to an additional 10-20 Wm-2 energy to the surface. This led us to hypothesize a zone from the ice edge where the surface will receive enhanced energy when the atmospheric flow is northward onto the ice. 

To test this hypothesis, we analyzed the observation from the entire ACSE expedition. All temperature profiles taken over sea ice were categorized into cases with or without a surface inversion; the inversion cases where further divided into two categories using the humidity profiles. When projecting other observations onto these three classes, many are systematically different. Surface inversion with increasing moisture with height systematically added 10-20 Wm-2 energy to the surface energy budget, indicating that meridional heat flux must be considered together with the small-scale processes caused by the air mass transformation.

Small thunderstorms, squall lines, tropical cyclones; all of these systems, organized across a range of scales in both space and time, comprise the tropical convection that is the source of precipitation for the most highly populated regions of the world. While significant progress has been made in understanding tropical convective systems and their associated precipitation processes, the understanding and accurate prediction of their evolution remains elusive.

Like many arenas in the United States, broadening the inclusion of people and perspectives in the scientific enterprise continues to be a hot button issue. Terms like “diversity of thought” have been used, and misused, in the academy as a way of attempting to frame the desired end goal of what it means to have truly representative science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Reaching this desired goal is especially important given the complex nature of the types of questions and problems the atmospheric sciences attempts to address.

Tropical convection is difficult to understand and even more difficult to predict, in part because of the interplay between the convection itself and the large scale circulations.  Predictability is possible, however, if the  scales of convective disturbances are large enough that they are influenced by voriticity anomalies in the environment.  Ooyama, in 1982, discussed this idea in the context of mature tropical cyclones, in a process he refered to as "cooperative intensification".  Recently, Raymond et al. (2015) revisted Ooyama's ideas and addressed the question of whether other less extreme types of tropical disturbances could be a response to a nonlinear form of "balanced dynamics".  If so, they argued that these types of disturbances would have potential for predictability (and therefore would also be parameterizable).  In terms of time scales, disturbances which occur on scales longer than the time to establish balance, are candidates for predictability based on the potential for moist convection to evolve as a balanced response to large scale vorticity anomalies.  

In this talk, I'll revisit some of Ooyama's and Raymond's ideas regarding balance dynamics, and discuss how we would look for signatures of balanced dynamics in convective systems.  I'll also discuss the mechanism by which a vorticity anomaly can modulate and strengthen a developing convective system, and address the question of whether the Madden-Julian Oscillation is a candidate for a convective disturbance under the influence of balanced dynamics.  Finally, I discuss how these concepts can potentially be used to evaluate and diagnose global models that have varying degrees of skill in simulating tropical disturbances (and the MJO in particular).

Observations and modeling of the atmospheric boundary layer and
its impact on the general circulation
Gunilla Svensson, Stockholm University

The atmospheric boundary layer is the turbulent layer that is in contact with the surface and where the exchange of heat and momentum by turbulent processes occur. Turbulence is a small-scale process that are not resolved in numerical models used for weather prediction and climate projections and therefore has to be parameterized. Some evaluation of boundary-layer properties and surface fluxes will be presented. The focus will be on the link between the momentum transfer at the surface and its effects on the general circulation.

The effect of the boundary-layer friction on large-scale circulation can be expressed in terms of the cross-isobaric flow angle, related to the surface stress acting on the flow. Analysis of this angle reveals that it is systematically underestimated in climate models and reanalysis products. An idealized single-column model framework and LES results are used to examine the turning angle over a range of geostrophic winds and static stabilities. It is found that both the vertical resolution and the stability functions, e.g. the so-called long- and short-tail formulation in stably stratified conditions, impact the cross-isobaric angle.

 Opportunities and Challenges: Diversifying Your Workforce
Toni Collis
Co-Founder of Women in HPC & Applications Consultant in HPC Research & Industry, EPCC,
University of Edinburgh

The under-representation of women and minorities is a challenge that the entire supercomputing industry faces. As a community we are only just beginning to measure and understand how ‘leaky’ our pipeline is, but attrition rates are likely as high as the general tech community: 41% of women working in tech eventually leave the field (compared to just 17% of men).

This session will discuss the work being carried out by Women in HPC and ARCHER to diversify HPC in the UK and beyond. I will discuss the impact of inhibiting factors such as unconscious bias and impostor syndrome as well steps that can be taken to address these issues in the workplace, in recruitment activities and in training.

Data Stewardship and Engineering Team (DSET) - Building Community Informed and Driven Data Services

Sophie Hou
NCAR/CISL

 Being able to enable and facilitate scientific progress by providing advanced computing capabilities has been a focus for NCAR, especially through CISL. Additional developments of dedicated technical infrastructures for supporting data-related activities, such as visualization, analysis, processing, and transformation, have also been prioritized. However, in order to meet the diverse existing and emerging data needs from the scientific community, data services must integrate human and organizational services with technical developments. Data services have a better chance to be accepted and used by the target community if the community members are represented and consulted during the design and implementation process. The NCAR’s Data Stewardship Engineering Team (DSET) was created to design and implement comprehensive NCAR digital asset search, discovery, and access. To achieve this challenging task, cross-organizational participation and communication are essential, including having representatives and stakeholders from the NCAR science and technical divisions to leverage the expertise of both groups. The goal of DSET is to ensure that feedback from users is built into the process, and ultimately, enable data services, including the technical infrastructures, to be developed in alignment with the community’s research and data needs.

Bio: Sophie Hou (hou@ucar.edu) is the Data Curation & Stewardship Coordinator at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)/University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR). At NCAR/UCAR, Sophie focuses on providing dedicated support, engagement, and training for questions and issues that scientific researchers might encounter when working with data (including software tools and model codes). Additionally, Sophie collaborates with and participates in both internal and external data curation-centric communities and activities, including NCAR Data Stewardship Engineering Team, to help share experiences and key lessons learned, especially those relating to data management infrastructures and best practices. Sophie has a Master of Science in Library and Information Science program with the specialization in Data Curation from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and prior to joining NCAR, Sophie's previous Bachelor and Master of Science degrees and professional work experience were in the field of Electrical Engineering.

Morgan State University/GESTAR and NASA/GMAO
Baltimore, Maryland 

Simulated observations for most observation types currently used operationally have been produced within NASA's GMAO OSSE project. They are extracted from the GMAO GEOS-5 high-resolution nature run, considering advection of sondes, effects of clouds on IR observations, and presence of cloud and water vapor gradients to determine possible AMV locations. Critically, simulated observation (instrument plus representativeness) errors are also added since the system errors determine all validation and performance metrics.  These include both uncorrelated and spatially and channel correlated components.  The simulated (assimilation) model error must also be adequate. Validation includes a variety of metrics. including innovation correlations, use of the nature-run as the validating truth, and adjoint-derived observation impacts. The latest GMAO OSSE software also includes an automated algorithm for tuning statistics of the simulated errors. This OSSE framework has been applied to investigate potential impacts of several proposed observing systems. Examples will be presented.

Connecting Mesospheric Composition to Intra-annual Variability in the Thermosphere and Ionosphere using TIME-GCM

During the past two decades, and especially during the most recent solar minimum period, there has been a paradigm shift from a mainly solar forced ionosphere-thermosphere (IT) system to an IT system that is also subject to persistent meteorological forcing via a spectrum of different wave components. Considerable progress has been made in modeling lower atmospheric drivers of the IT, but the mechanisms that connect the mesosphere, thermosphere, and ionosphere are still poorly understood, particularly on time scales of months to years. To address this, the overarching goal of our study is to uncover the links that connect mesospheric composition to the F-region ionosphere. To accomplish this goal, we have performed numerical experiments using the “standard” National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Thermosphere-Ionosphere-Mesosphere-Electrodynamics General Circulation Model (TIME-GCM), as well as TIME-GCM simulations nudged by 3-hourly High Altitude Navy Global Environmental Model (HA-NAVGEM) analyses (i.e., winds and temperatures) in the stratosphere and mesosphere, and examine the consequences for the seasonal and intra-annual variations in the thermosphere and F-region ionosphere. In this seminar, we first show that the “standard” TIME-GCM simulates, from first principles, a strong global semiannual oscillation (SAO) in thermospheric mass density and ionospheric total electron content, and determine the potential drivers of this prominent intra-annual variation in the IT. Secondly, we report on initial results from a January-March 2010 TIME-GCM simulation designed as a proof-of-concept in order to assess the nudged TIME-GCM’s capability in reproducing a sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) in late January/early February 2010.

A Flexible Decomposition of Climate Variability into Regional Components and Teleconnections: Insights from a Large Initial Condition Ensemble
Vineel Yetella
University of Colorado, Boulder

We propose a framework that facilitates the decomposition of the predictability and variability of a global climate variable into components arising from regions and their teleconnections. The framework is applicable to a broad range of variability studies since the choice of the subsystems is arbitrary. For example, the framework can be used to decompose the predictability and variability of a global variable into components arising from land and ocean, ENSO and non-ENSO regions, polar and non-polar regions etc., and their teleconnections. As such, the framework enables comparing and contrasting the regional contributions to global predictability and variability, both within a climate model and across climate models. To illustrate the measure, we present results from its application to the decomposition of global surface temperature predictability into components arising from land, ocean and their teleconnection in a large initial condition ensemble (Community Earth System Model 1 - Large Ensemble). The ensemble is initialized at 1920 and run under historical forcing from 1920 - 2005 and RCP 8.5 forcing from 2006 - 2100. The land component of initial-value predictability decays to zero in approximately one month, considerably faster than the ocean component which persists for almost two years. The component arising from the land-ocean teleconnection has a non-negligible contribution to the global initial-value predictability for almost two months. On longer time scales, all components of global temperature variability increase relative to their 1850 climatology in response to anthropogenic forcing, suggesting stronger teleconnections and a greater probability of extremes in the model projection.

Air Quality in the Northern Colorado Front Range: FRAPPÉ and DISCOVER-AQ Campaigns

Gabi Pfister

Two large air quality studies involving four aircraft and extensive ground based measurements were conducted in the Northern Colorado Front Range in the summer of 2014: the NCAR/NSF/State of Colorado Front Range Air Pollution and Photochemistry Éxperiment (FRAPPÉ) and the 4th deployment of the NASA DISCOVER-AQ. The immensely rich data set from these campaigns is analyzed to characterize the driver of high ozone pollution in the Front Range. This is a complex task given the large variety of emission sources (urban emissions with the addition of a rapidly expanding oil and natural gas sector, industry and power generation units as well as animal feedlots), the complex topography and the influence of upwind pollution and poses a large challenge to atmospheric models. 

Detailed chemical and meteorological observations during these five weeks were collected from a range of platforms including aircraft, surface sites, mobile vans, lidars, wind profilers, ozone sondes and satellites. All these have different coverage in time and space and measure different sets of parameters. In order to fully exploit the data set, there is a need and an opportunity for statistical techniques to optimally integrate the different data sets and develop ways to efficiently and conclusively compare to model output.

Different people in different occupations depend on weather forecasts to plan their work and recreational schedules. People with no expertise in meteorology frequently interpret weather forecasts and uncertainty information. These non-experts apply their prior knowledge and experiences in a variety of fields to synthesize different types of information to interpret forecasts. In this PhD study, situations of typical users were simulated when examining how different user groups interpret, integrate, and use information from an online weather report (www.Yr.no) in their everyday decision-making. First, qualitative interviews of twenty-one Norwegians (farmers, exterior painters, tour guides, teachers and students) were conducted. Second, sixteen students participated in an eye-tracking study.

The study found that nuances such as color and the number of drops were important in the interpretations of the weather symbols and forecast uncertainty, which were sometimes interpreted differently than intended by the forecast provider. Prior knowledge and the integration of information from different representations affected the participants’ interpretations. The decision-making process influenced the selections of representations in different situations; their selection was dependent on the importance of the envisaged activity and the weather conditions for the day. Additionally, in situations in which the participants had a lack of experiences, this lack provides a possible explanation for why part of the information was occasionally not understood and used.

Some implications of the findings for communication and future research will be discussed in the presentation. For example, it appears that some users should be supported to facilitate the interpretation and use of information in situations where they lack experiences. One possibility to support persons that lack experiences and have low situation awareness might be to provide consequences and impacts of forecast weather.

Lightning flash size and rate is controlled by the distribution of electrical potential in the thundercloud. This distribution results from microphysical charge separation followed by differential sedimentation and advective transport of charged hydrometeors.

Advancements in lightning instrumentation in the past twenty years have resulted in a new generation of lightning datasets which map the extent of lightning flashes in the cloud. These measurements enable construction of radar-like three-dimensional lightning grids of flash rate and size at one minute resolution.  When combined with a simple electrostatic model of the lightning discharge the flash size data may be used to estimate lightning energy spectra. These spectra look like a thunderstorm's turbulence kinetic energy spectrum. In storm updrafts, there are many more small flashes than in anvil regions, suggesting that turbulence is helping to control the electrical energy distribution. 

A recent measurement campaign conducted by Texas Tech University with two Ka-band mobile radars and VHF Lightning Mapping Array was designed to test the relationship between the turbulent properties of thunderstorms and lightning flash energy spectra. The radar data, which have 9-15 m range gates, resolve the outer length scale of the inertial range as well as turbulence statistics. We are using these data to study the association of flash size with more and less turbulent regions. 

Our work with lightning and kinetic energy spectra in thunderstorms has led to interest in theoretical approaches to the study of the spectral content of the electrostatic and non-hydrostatic pressure fields, both of which are described by Poisson problems. An electrified cloud model may be used to study the spectral content of these fields, though to the author's knowledge analytic tools are lacking which might be used to guide the study of the observed multi-scale coupling of the electrostatics and kinematics.
