SEAS Colloquium in Climate Science (SCiCS)

Columbia University, Morningside Campus S.W. Mudd, Room 214

In-Sik Kang, School of Earth Environment Sciences, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea - "A GCM with explicit cloud microphysics for simulation of extreme precipitation frequency" The present work aims to develop a general circulation model (GCM) with improved simulation of heavy precipitation frequency by improving the representations of cloud and rain processes. GCMs with conventional convective parameterizations produce common bias in precipitation frequency: they overestimate light precipitation and underestimate heavy precipitation with respect to observed values. This frequency shift toward light precipitation is attributed here to a lack of consideration of cloud microphysical processes related to heavy precipitation. The budget study of cloud microphysical processes using a cloud-resolving model shows that the melting of graupel and accretion of cloud water by graupel and rainwater are important processes in the generation of heavy precipitation. However, those processes are not expressed explicitly in conventional GCMs with convective parameterizations. In the present study, the cloud microphysics is modified to allow its implementation into a GCM with a horizontal resolution of 50 km. The newly developed GCM, which includes explicit cloud microphysics, produces more heavy precipitation and less light precipitation than conventional GCMs, thus simulating a precipitation frequency that is closer to the observed. This study demonstrates that the GCM requires a full representation of cloud microphysics to simulate the extreme precipitation frequency realistically. It is also shown that a coarse-resolution GCM with cloud microphysics requires an additional mixing process in the lower troposphere.

Colorado: Marine Cloud Brightening to Respond to Climate Change

Denver, CO

f necessary to respond to climate change, people could spray sea water droplets into ocean air, let the droplets rise into overlying clouds, and increase sunlight reflection from clouds that typically already cover more than a quarter of the oceans. The increased reflection into space could hold the Earth's temperature constant for perhaps 50 years, allowing development of non-carbon energy sources. The sea spray generators, on remotely controlled sailboats, need only wind and seawater. Generators could be turned on or off under more or fewer clouds in differing areas. If generators are turned off, their effects end within a few days.
