Highligth paper in Geoscientific Model Development
9th October 2023
The publication “Emulating lateral gravity wave propagation in a global chemistry–climate model (EMAC v2.55.2) through horizontal flux redistribution” by Roland Eichinger et al. was selected as Higlight paper in the open access journal “Geoscientific Model Development”.
The study presents a computationally efficient method to emulate the effects of lateral propagation of orographic gravity waves (GW) in climate models by horizontal momentum flux redistribution using redistribution maps derived from a GW ray-tracing model. This approach provides an improvement from the purely columnar implementation of gravity wave parameterisations used currently in weather and climate models towards a better representation of orographic GWs in climate models.
