What you will learn in this Tutorial

In this tutorial you will learn how the wet deposition of chemical species is handelled in UKCA. You will then add-in the wet deposition of one of your new tracers.

Task 8.1: Add wet deposition of a species

Task 8.1: Add in wet deposition for BOB, using the following values:

for the 1st dissociation for the 1st dissociation for the 2nd dissociation for the 2nd dissociation

Adding Wet Deposition

The formulation used in UKCA is described in Giannakopoulos (1999)[1]. This scheme uses the following formula to calculate the effective Henry's Law coefficient

where is the rate constant at 298K.

During this tutorial you will be tasked with adding the wet deposition of one of your new tracers.

Turning on Wet Deposition for a Species

Chemistry Scheme Specification

Within the UKCA code, whether a species is wet deposited or not is controlled in the ukca_chem_master.F90 module. In the chch_defs_master array there are lines like

!   9 DD:  6,WD:  4,
! No dry deposition for HO2NO2 in R and T schemes
chch_t1( 9,'HO2NO2    ',1,'TR        ','          ',0,1,r+t,0,0,107),          &
chch_t1( 9,'HO2NO2    ',1,'TR        ','          ',1,1,ti+s+st+cs,0,0,107),   &
!  10 DD:  7,WD:  5,   (20)
chch_t1(10,'HONO2     ',1,'TR        ','          ',1,1,ti+s+t+st+r+cs,        &
                                                                0,0,107),      &

Where the 1 in the 7th column turns on wet deposition of that species (being 0 otherwise). You will need to change the 0 to a 1 for the species that you wish to now wet deposit.

Setting Henry's Law values

In the ukca_chem_master.F90 module the parameters required to calculate are held in the henry_defs_master array (of defined size n_wet_master), and has format

N 'SPECIES   '
for the 1st dissociation for the 1st dissociation for the 2nd dissociation for the 2nd dissociation
SCHEME QUALIFIER DISQUALIFIER VN

Columns 3 and 4 are used if the species dissociates in the aqueous phase. In this case, is further multiplied by a factor of

where

and column 3 contains the values of and column 4 contains the value of . Similarly, if the species dissociates a second time then a further factor of is applied, where this value of is calculated from the values of and in columns 5 and 6.

Examples for this array are

! WD: 4
wetdep(4,'HO2NO2    ',                                                         &
(/0.13e+05,0.69e+04,0.10e-04,0.00e+00,0.00e+00,0.0e+00/),ti+t+st+r+cs,0,0,107),&
wetdep(4,'HO2NO2    ',                                                         &
(/0.20e+05,0.00e+00,0.10e-04,0.00e+00,0.00e+00,0.00e+00/),s,0,0,107),          &
! WD: 5
wetdep(5,'HONO2     ',                                                         &
(/0.21e+06,0.87e+04,0.20e+02,0.00e+00,0.00e+00,0.0e+00/),ti+t+st+r+cs,0,0,107),&
wetdep(5,'HONO2     ',                                                         &
