## 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 in wet deposition for BOB, using the following values:

${\displaystyle \ k(298)\ }$ ${\displaystyle \ -\left({\Delta H}/R\right)\ }$ ${\displaystyle \ k(298)}$ for the 1st dissociation ${\displaystyle \ -\left({\Delta H}/R\right)}$ for the 1st dissociation ${\displaystyle \ k(298)}$ for the 2nd dissociation ${\displaystyle \ -\left({\Delta H}/R\right)}$ for the 2nd dissociation
${\displaystyle \ 0.21\times 10^{+06}\ }$ ${\displaystyle \ 0.87\times 10^{+04}\ }$ ${\displaystyle \ 0.2\times 10^{+02}\ }$ ${\displaystyle \ 0.0\ }$ ${\displaystyle \ 0.0\ }$ ${\displaystyle \ 0.0\ }$

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

${\displaystyle H_{eff}=k\left(298\right)\exp \left(-{\frac {\Delta H}{R}}\left[\left({\frac {1}{T}}\right)-\left({\frac {1}{298}}\right)\right]\right)}$

where ${\displaystyle k\left(298\right)}$ 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 ${\displaystyle H_{eff}}$ are held in the henry_defs_master array (of defined size n_wet_master), and has format

 N 'SPECIES   ' ${\displaystyle \ k(298)\ }$ ${\displaystyle \ -\left({\Delta H}/R\right)\ }$ ${\displaystyle \ k(298)}$ for the 1st dissociation ${\displaystyle \ -\left({\Delta H}/R\right)}$ for the 1st dissociation ${\displaystyle \ k(298)}$ for the 2nd dissociation ${\displaystyle \ -\left({\Delta H}/R\right)}$ 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, ${\displaystyle H_{eff}}$ is further multiplied by a factor of

${\displaystyle 1+{\frac {k(aq)}{H^{+}}}}$

where

${\displaystyle k(aq)=k\left(298\right)\exp \left(-{\frac {\Delta H}{R}}\left[\left({\frac {1}{T}}\right)-\left({\frac {1}{298}}\right)\right]\right)}$

and column 3 contains the values of ${\displaystyle k(298)}$ and column 4 contains the value of ${\displaystyle -{\Delta H}/R}$. Similarly, if the species dissociates a second time then a further factor of ${\displaystyle 1+k(aq)/H^{+}}$ is applied, where this value of ${\displaystyle k(aq)}$ is calculated from the values of ${\displaystyle k(298)}$ and ${\displaystyle -{\Delta H}/R}$ in columns 5 and 6.

Examples for this array are

! WD: 4
wetdep(4,'HO2NO2    ',                                                         &

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),          &

(/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     ',                                                         &
(/0.21e+06,0.87e+04,0.157e+02,0.00e+00,0.00e+00,0.00e+00/),s,0,0,107),         &
