Data associated with “Convective distribution of dust over the Arabian Peninsula: the impact of model resolution”
Input namelist for one-way nested (ndown.exe) 3-km resolution simulation from the 15-km BMJ simulation (7.307Kb)
Along the coasts of the Arabian Peninsula, convective dust storms are a considerable source of mineral dust to the atmosphere. Reliable predictions of convective dust events are necessary to determine their effects on air quality, visibility, and the radiation budget. In this study, the Weather Research and Forecasting Model coupled with Chemistry (WRF-Chem) is used to simulate a 2016 summertime dust event over the Arabian Peninsula and examine the variability in dust fields and associated vertical transport due to the choice of convective parameterization and explicit versus parameterized ...
