Using the SatSim Gridded Component in Heracles 4.0

From GEOS-5
Jump to: navigation, search

This page describes how to use the SatSim gridded component, which implements the CFMIP observational simulator package (COSP). This package simulates the cloud observations from the satellite instruments CloudSat, CALIPSO, MISR, and PARASOL, and the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP). The SatSim gridded component is compiled by default into Heracles 4.0 and can be invoked at runtime.

Back to GEOS-5 Documentation for Heracles 4.0

Compile-Time Options

The SatSim gridded component is located in file GEOS_SatsimGridComp.F90 in the following sub-directory of the GEOS-5 build:

src/GEOSgcs_GridComp/GEOSgcm_GridComp/GEOSagcm_GridComp/GEOSphysics_GridComp/GEOSradiation_GridComp/GEOSsatsim_GridComp

The other files in this directory are provided with COSP.

By default the gridded component runs the ISCCP, Cloudsat (radar), CALIPSO (lidar), PARASOL, MISR and MODIS simulators. Individual simulators, particularly the radar and lidar simulators, may be switched off for performance purposes. Another option is the use of preprocessing directive, #define USE_MAPL_UNDEF. This sets all of the "undefined" values to MAPL_UNDEF from the values used by COSP and the simulator routines, preventing problems in the GEOS-5 post-processing.

Setting Up SatSim

SatSim is turned on by including one or more of the the following lines in the AGCM.rc file at runtime. Each enables the use of their respective simulators

USE_SATSIM_ISCCP: 1
USE_SATSIM_MODIS: 1
USE_SATSIM_RADAR: 1
USE_SATSIM_LIDAR: 1
USE_SATSIM_MISR: 1

All available simulators may be invoked at once by including just the following line:

USE_SATSIM: 1

To produce output from SatSim you will need to provide data collections in your run's HISTORY.rc file. Samples are provided below. The collections as provided are very storage-intensive due to the many 3D global fields in lidar and radar, and more than fifty 2D fields in isccp.

Sample Collections for HISTORY.rc

The following are sample collections included with the default HISTORY.rc. The collections are listed here:

            'geosgcm_lidar'
            'geosgcm_parasol'
            'geosgcm_modis'
            'geosgcm_radar'
            'geosgcm_isccp'
            'geosgcm_misr'

They need to be uncommented in the file.

CALIPSO/PARASOL

The following are exports from the lidar routine, which simulates data from the CALIPSO and PARASOL satellites. As with all of the collections here, effort has been made to conform to the fields and short names specified in the CFMIP documents. The exports with names beginning respectively with CFADLIDARSR532 and PARASOLREFL and ending with a number are not CFMIP-compliant as they are supposed to be single multidimensional fields. This is due to limitations that MAPL places on the structure of exports. Exports from the Moist gridded component are provided for comparison and diagnostics. The vertical levels are intended to conform to CFMIP specifications -- the levels entry should be on one line in the HISTORY.rc file.

ISCCP

The following collection provides the fields from the icarus (ISCPP) routine. The CFMIP documents stipulate that ISCCP output be in a 7x7 matrix of 2D fields; these fields are broken out individually here in the exports with names that start with ISCCP. The rest of the names follow the codes outlined in the ISCCP routines for cloud type and then height (for that cloud type, increasing with U/M/O) and optical depth (A/B).

To achive partial compliance with CFMIP data specifications (to be amended in post-processing), the fields are also grouped in seven exports ISCCP1 through ISCCP7, each with the increasing pressure level bands of the ISCCP data. Each export contains seven fields of increasing optical depth in that pressure band. These fields must be in a separate HISTORY collection from regular two and three dimensional fields, and it is generally unrecommended that you use them unless you have particular reason to.
