  • A step forward toward effectively using hyperspectral IR sounding
           information in NWP
    • Authors: Jun Li; Wei Han
      Pages: 1263 - 1264
      Abstract: 摘 要 搭载在气象卫星上的作为全球观测资料重要来源之一的高光谱分辨率红外(IR)探测仪器, 例如搭载于 Aqua 卫星上的 AIRS, Metop-A/B 卫星上的 IASI 以及 SNPP 卫星上的 CrIS, 其观测数据通过同化应用到业务数值天气预报(NWP)模式, 能够改进数值天气预报. 在全部的卫星观测中, 红外和微波探测器的观测对数值天气预报技术具有最重要的影响(Joo 等, 2013; Cucurull 和Anthes, 2014). 虽然先进的红外探测器在数值天气预报系统中占有重要地位, 但由于其观测数据量巨大, 在全部可用的通道中也只有数百个通道的观测可被同化利用. 例如, AIRS, IAS I和CrIS 分别拥有 2372, 8461 和 1305 个观测通道, 也只有部分观测通道被主要的业务中心同化应用到了数值天气预报模式中. 为了有效地将高光谱红外遥感信息同化到数值天气预报模式中, 提出了多种筛选通道的方法. 例如, Li 和 Huang(1994)提出一种基于逐步回归的方法, 用于 AIRS 的通道筛选; Collard(2007)提出了基于信息内容分析以及相关限制条件的筛选方案; Rabier 等(2002)研究了基于雅可比矩阵及迭代方法的筛选方案, 用于顺序筛选通道以获得最大信息量; 在标准方法的基础上, Ventress 和 Dudhia(2014)发展的改进方案在通道筛选过程中可以更好的模拟和量化光谱相关误差; Migliorini(ECMWF技术备忘录, 编号727, 2014)研究了基于最优流依赖在有云情况下的通道筛选方案. 这些方法都可以有效地筛选一套通道, 为同化辐射量提供最优化信息, 尤其是地球同步卫星上的先进的高光谱探测器; 例如, 搭载在风云四号卫星上的地球同步干涉红外探测器(Yang 等, 2017). 综上所述, 通道筛选方案都是基于信息内容分析, 同时考虑非线性及其他因素(例如, 相关误差)的影响. 信息内容分析方法的一大局限在于采用线性方法筛选具有高度非线性的吸收通道(例如, 与温度相比, 水汽吸收通道的辐射量与大气中水汽的含量之间具有较大的非线性关系). 这类通道筛选方法的另一个局限在于不同吸收区间的通道被独立筛选, 由于不同通道的权重不同, 将导致主观的通道筛选结果. 最近, 一个新的通道筛选方法被提出 (Noh 等, 2017). 采用这种方法, 通过计算每个独立...

  • A new Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer channel selection and
           assessment of its impact on Met Office NWP forecasts
    • Authors: Young-Chan Noh; Byung-Ju Sohn; Yoonjae Kim; Sangwon Joo; William Bell; Roger Saunders
      Pages: 1265 - 1281
      Abstract: Abstract A new set of Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer (IASI) channels was re-selected from 314 EUMETSAT channels. In selecting channels, we calculated the impact of the individually added channel on the improvement in the analysis outputs from a one-dimensional variational analysis (1D-Var) for the Unified Model (UM) data assimilation system at the Met Office, using the channel score index (CSI) as a figure of merit. Then, 200 channels were selected in order by counting each individual channel’s CSI contribution. Compared with the operationally used 183 channels for the UM at the Met Office, the new set shares 149 channels, while the other 51 channels are new. Also examined is the selection from the entropy reduction method with the same 1D-Var approach. Results suggest that channel selection can be made in a more objective fashion using the proposed CSI method. This is because the most important channels can be selected across the whole IASI observation spectrum. In the experimental trial runs using the UM global assimilation system, the new channels had an overall neutral impact in terms of improvement in forecasts, as compared with results from the operational channels. However, upper-tropospheric moist biases shown in the control run with operational channels were significantly reduced in the experimental trial with the newly selected channels. The reduction of moist biases was mainly due to the additional water vapor channels, which are sensitive to the upper-tropospheric water vapor.

  • Decadal Indian Ocean dipolar variability and its relationship with the
           tropical Pacific
    • Authors: Yun Yang; Jianping Li; Lixin Wu; Yu Kosaka; Yan Du; Cheng Sun; Fei Xie; Juan Feng
      Pages: 1282 - 1289
      Abstract: Abstract A robust decadal Indian Ocean dipolar variability (DIOD) is identified in observations and found to be related to tropical Pacific decadal variability (TPDV). A Pacific Ocean–global atmosphere (POGA) experiment, with fixed radiative forcing, is conducted to evaluate the DIOD variability and its relationship with the TPDV. In this experiment, the sea surface temperature anomalies are restored to observations over the tropical Pacific, but left as interactive with the atmosphere elsewhere. The TPDV-forced DIOD, represented as the ensemble mean of 10 simulations in POGA, accounts for one third of the total variance. The forced DIOD is triggered by anomalous Walker circulation in response to the TPDV and develops following Bjerknes feedback. Thermocline anomalies do not exhibit a propagating signal, indicating an absence of oceanic planetary wave adjustment in the subtropical Indian Ocean. The DIOD–TPDV correlation differs among the 10 simulations, with a low correlation corresponding to a strong internal DIOD independent of the TPDV. The variance of this internal DIOD depends on the background state in the Indian Ocean, modulated by the thermocline depth off Sumatra/Java.

  • Why was the strengthening of rainfall in summer over the Yangtze River
           valley in 2016 less pronounced than that in 1998 under similar preceding
           El Niño events'—Role of midlatitude circulation in August
    • Authors: Chaofan Li; Wei Chen; Xiaowei Hong; Riyu Lu
      Pages: 1290 - 1300
      Abstract: Abstract It is widely recognized that rainfall over the Yangtze River valley (YRV) strengthens considerably during the decaying summer of El Niño, as demonstrated by the catastrophic flooding suffered in the summer of 1998. Nevertheless, the rainfall over the YRV in the summer of 2016 was much weaker than that in 1998, despite the intensity of the 2016 El Niño having been as strong as that in 1998. A thorough comparison of the YRV summer rainfall anomaly between 2016 and 1998 suggests that the difference was caused by the sub-seasonal variation in the YRV rainfall anomaly between these two years, principally in August. The precipitation anomaly was negative in August 2016—different to the positive anomaly of 1998. Further analysis suggests that the weaker YRV rainfall in August 2016 could be attributable to the distinct circulation anomalies over the midlatitudes. The intensified “Silk Road Pattern” and upper-tropospheric geopotential height over the Urals region, both at their strongest since 1980, resulted in an anticyclonic circulation anomaly over midlatitude East Asia with anomalous easterly flow over the middle-to-lower reaches of the YRV in the lower troposphere. This easterly flow reduced the climatological wind, weakened the water vapor transport, and induced the weaker YRV rainfall in August 2016, as compared to that in 1998. Given the unique sub-seasonal variation of the YRV rainfall in summer 2016, more attention should be paid to midlatitude circulation—besides the signal in the tropics—to further our understanding of the predictability and variation of YRV summer rainfall.

  • Modification of the SUNFLUX solar radiation scheme with a new aerosol
           parameterization and its validation using observation network data
    • Authors: Yongjian He; Zhi’an Sun; Guoping Shi; Jingmiao Liu; Jiandong Li
      Pages: 1301 - 1315
      Abstract: Abstract SUNFLUX is a fast parameterization scheme for determination of the solar radiation at the Earth’s surface. In this paper, SUNFLUX is further modified in the treatment of aerosols. A new aerosol parameterization scheme is developed for five aerosol species. Observational data from Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN), Surface Radiation Budget Network (SURFRAD) and Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) stations are used to evaluate the accuracy of the original and modified SUNFLUX schemes. General meteorological data are available at SURFRAD stations, but not at BSRN stations. Therefore, the total precipitable water content and aerosol data are obtained from AERONET stations. Fourteen stations are selected from both BSRN and AERONET. Cloud fraction data from MODIS are further used to screen the cloud. Ten-year average aerosol mixing ratios simulated by the CAM-chem system are used to calculate the fractions of aerosol optical depth for each aerosol species, and these fractions are further used to convert the observed total aerosol optical depth into the components of individual species for use in the evaluations. The proper treatment of multiple aerosol types in the model is discussed. The evaluation results using SUNFLUX with the new aerosol scheme, in terms of the BSRN dataset, are better than those using the original aerosol scheme under clear-sky conditions. However, the results using the SURFRAD dataset are slightly worse, attributable to the differences in the input water vapor and aerosol optical depth. Sensitivity tests are conducted to investigate the error response of the SUNFLUX scheme to the errors in the input variables.

  • Dynamical feedback between synoptic eddy and low-frequency flow as
           simulated by BCC_CSM1.1(m)
    • Authors: Fang Zhou; Hong-Li Ren
      Pages: 1316 - 1332
      Abstract: Abstract Since the interaction between atmospheric synoptic eddy (SE) (2–8 days) activity and low-frequency (LF) (monthly) flow (referred to as SELF) plays an essential role in generating and maintaining dominant climate modes, an evaluation of the performance of BCC_CSM1.1(m) in simulating the SE feedback onto the LF flow is given in this paper. The model captures well the major spatial features of climatological eddy vorticity forcing, eddy-induced growth rate, and patterns of SELF feedback for the climate modes with large magnitudes in cold seasons and small magnitudes in warm seasons for both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. As in observations, the eddy-induced growth rate and SELF feedback patterns in the model also show positive SE feedback. Overall, the relationships between SE and LF flow show that BCC_CSM1.1(m) satisfactorily captures the basic features of positive SE feedback, which demonstrates the simulation skill of the model for LF variability. Specifically, such an evaluation can help to find model biases of BCC_CSM1.1(m) in simulating SE feedback, which will provide a reference for the model’s application.

  • Improvement of a snow albedo parameterization in the
           Snow–Atmosphere–Soil Transfer model: evaluation of impacts of aerosol
           on seasonal snow cover
    • Authors: Efang Zhong; Qian Li; Shufen Sun; Wen Chen; Shangfeng Chen; Debashis Nath
      Pages: 1333 - 1345
      Abstract: Abstract The presence of light-absorbing aerosols (LAA) in snow profoundly influence the surface energy balance and water budget. However, most snow-process schemes in land-surface and climate models currently do not take this into consideration. To better represent the snow process and to evaluate the impacts of LAA on snow, this study presents an improved snow albedo parameterization in the Snow–Atmosphere–Soil Transfer (SAST) model, which includes the impacts of LAA on snow. Specifically, the Snow, Ice and Aerosol Radiation (SNICAR) model is incorporated into the SAST model with an LAA mass stratigraphy scheme. The new coupled model is validated against in-situ measurements at the Swamp Angel Study Plot (SASP), Colorado, USA. Results show that the snow albedo and snow depth are better reproduced than those in the original SAST, particularly during the period of snow ablation. Furthermore, the impacts of LAA on snow are estimated in the coupled model through case comparisons of the snowpack, with or without LAA. The LAA particles directly absorb extra solar radiation, which accelerates the growth rate of the snow grain size. Meanwhile, these larger snow particles favor more radiative absorption. The average total radiative forcing of the LAA at the SASP is 47.5 W m−2. This extra radiative absorption enhances the snowmelt rate. As a result, the peak runoff time and “snow all gone” day have shifted 18 and 19.5 days earlier, respectively, which could further impose substantial impacts on the hydrologic cycle and atmospheric processes.

  • Impact of the time scale of model sensitivity response on coupled model
           parameter estimation
    • Authors: Chang Liu; Shaoqing Zhang; Shan Li; Zhengyu Liu
      Pages: 1346 - 1357
      Abstract: Abstract That a model has sensitivity responses to parameter uncertainties is a key concept in implementing model parameter estimation using filtering theory and methodology. Depending on the nature of associated physics and characteristic variability of the fluid in a coupled system, the response time scales of a model to parameters can be different, from hourly to decadal. Unlike state estimation, where the update frequency is usually linked with observational frequency, the update frequency for parameter estimation must be associated with the time scale of the model sensitivity response to the parameter being estimated. Here, with a simple coupled model, the impact of model sensitivity response time scales on coupled model parameter estimation is studied. The model includes characteristic synoptic to decadal scales by coupling a long-term varying deep ocean with a slow-varying upper ocean forced by a chaotic atmosphere. Results show that, using the update frequency determined by the model sensitivity response time scale, both the reliability and quality of parameter estimation can be improved significantly, and thus the estimated parameters make the model more consistent with the observation. These simple model results provide a guideline for when real observations are used to optimize the parameters in a coupled general circulation model for improving climate analysis and prediction initialization.

  • Influence of the preceding austral summer Southern Hemisphere annular mode
           on the amplitude of ENSO decay
    • Authors: Fei Zheng; Jianping Li; Ruiqiang Ding
      Pages: 1358 - 1379
      Abstract: Abstract There is increasing evidence of the possible role of extratropical forcing in the evolution of ENSO. The Southern Hemisphere Annular Mode (SAM) is the dominant mode of atmospheric circulation in the Southern Hemisphere extratropics. This study shows that the austral summer (December–January–February; DJF) SAM may also influence the amplitude of ENSO decay during austral autumn (March–April–May; MAM). The mechanisms associated with this SAM–ENSO relationship can be briefly summarized as follows: The SAM is positively (negatively) correlated with SST in the Southern Hemisphere middle (high) latitudes. This dipole-like SST anomaly pattern is referred to as the Southern Ocean Dipole (SOD). The DJF SOD, caused by the DJF SAM, could persist until MAM and then influence atmospheric circulation, including trade winds, over the Niño3.4 area. Anomalous trade winds and SST anomalies over the Niño3.4 area related to the DJF SAM are further developed through the Bjerkness feedback, which eventually results in a cooling (warming) over the Niño3.4 area followed by the positive (negative) DJF SAM.

  • The pioneering works of Professor Duzheng Ye on atmospheric dispersion,
           Tibetan Plateau meteorology, and air–sea interaction
    • Authors: Ngar-Cheung Lau
      Pages: 1137 - 1149
      Abstract: Abstract This paper provides an overview of the impacts of the original works of Professor Duzheng YE on a selected set of observational and model studies with which the present author has been associated over the past several decades. The main themes of these works include atmospheric energy dispersion, air–land interactions over the Tibetan Plateau, and El Ni˜norelated air–sea coupling over East Asia. The dispersive behavior of observed atmospheric fluctuations accompanying cold surge events in East Asia is demonstrated. Cold air outbreaks over Korea and southern China are coincident with the successive downstream development of troughs and ridges, with the group velocity of such wave packets being notably faster than the phase propagation speed of individual troughs and ridges. In a more general context, dispersive features are also discernible from lagged teleconnection charts and cross-spectra of observed and model-simulated geopotential height variations on 10–30-day time scales. Using the output from a high-resolution general circulation model, the relative contributions of condensational, sensible, and radiative heating to the atmospheric energy budget over the Tibetan Plateau are documented. The rapid changes of the upper tropospheric Tibetan anticyclone and East Asian mei-yu (“plum rain”) precipitation band associated with the development of the Asian monsoon system are described. The principal anomalies in sea level pressure, surface wind, precipitation and sea surface temperature over southeastern China and the Philippine Sea region during El Ni˜no events are presented. The contributions of remote El Ni˜no-related forcing and local air–sea interaction to the occurrence of these anomalies are assessed.

  • On multi-level thinking and scientific understanding
    • Authors: Michael Edgeworth McIntyre

      Abstract: Abstract Professor Duzheng YE’s name has been familiar to me ever since my postdoctoral years at MIT with Professors Jule CHARNEY and Norman PHILLIPS, back in the late 1960s. I had the enormous pleasure of meeting Professor YE personally in 1992 in Beijing. His concern to promote the very best science and to use it well, and his thinking on multi-level orderly human activities, reminds me not only of the communication skills we need as scientists but also of the multi-level nature of science itself. Here I want to say something (a) about what science is; (b) about why multi-level thinking—and taking more than one viewpoint—is so important for scientific as well as for other forms of understanding; and (c) about what is meant, at a deep level, by “scientific understanding” and trying to communicate it, not only with lay persons but also across professional disciplines. I hope that Professor YE would approve.

  • Formation and variation of the atmospheric heat source over the Tibetan
           Plateau and its climate effects
    • Authors: Guoxiong Wu; Bian He; Anmin Duan; Yimin Liu; Wei Yu
      Pages: 1169 - 1184
      Abstract: Abstract To cherish the memory of the late Professor Duzheng YE on what would have been his 100th birthday, and to celebrate his great accomplishment in opening a new era of Tibetan Plateau (TP) meteorology, this review paper provides an assessment of the atmospheric heat source (AHS) over the TP from different data resources, including observations from local meteorological stations, satellite remote sensing data, and various reanalysis datasets. The uncertainty and applicability of these heat source data are evaluated. Analysis regarding the formation of the AHS over the TP demonstrates that it is not only the cause of the atmospheric circulation, but is also a result of that circulation. Based on numerical experiments, the review further demonstrates that land–sea thermal contrast is only one part of the monsoon story. The thermal forcing of the Tibetan–Iranian Plateau plays a significant role in generating the Asian summer monsoon (ASM), i.e., in addition to pumping water vapor from sea to land and from the lower to the upper troposphere, it also generates a subtropical monsoon–type meridional circulation subject to the angular momentum conservation, providing an ascending-air large-scale background for the development of the ASM.

  • Evolving perspectives on abrupt seasonal changes of the general
    • Authors: Jianhua Lu; Tapio Schneider
      Pages: 1185 - 1194
      Abstract: Abstract Professor Duzheng YE (Tu-cheng YEH) was decades ahead of his time in proposing a model experiment to investigate whether abrupt seasonal changes of the general circulation can arise through circulation feedbacks alone, unrelated to underlying inhomogeneities at the lower boundary. Here, we introduce Professor YEH’s ideas during the 1950s and 1960s on the general circulation and summarize the results and suggestions of Yeh et al. (1959) on abrupt seasonal changes. We then review recent advances in understanding abrupt seasonal changes arising from model experiments like those proposed by Yeh et al. (1959). The model experiments show that circulation feedbacks can indeed give rise to abrupt seasonal transitions. In these transitions, large-scale eddies that originate in midlatitudes and interact with the zonal mean flow and meridional overturning circulations in the tropics play central roles.

  • Differences and links between the East Asian and South Asian summer
           monsoon systems: Characteristics and Variability
    • Authors: Ronghui Huang; Yong Liu; Zhencai Du; Jilong Chen; Jingliang Huangfu
      Pages: 1204 - 1218
      Abstract: Abstract This paper analyzes the differences in the characteristics and spatio–temporal variabilities of summertime rainfall and water vapor transport between the East Asian summer monsoon (EASM) and South Asian summer monsoon (SASM) systems. The results show obvious differences in summertime rainfall characteristics between these two monsoon systems. The summertime rainfall cloud systems of the EASM show a mixed stratiform and cumulus cloud system, while cumulus cloud dominates the SASM. These differences may be caused by differences in the vertical shear of zonal and meridional circulations and the convergence of water vapor transport fluxes. Moreover, the leading modes of the two systems’ summertime rainfall anomalies also differ in terms of their spatiotemporal features on the interannual and interdecadal timescales. Nevertheless, several close links with respect to the spatiotemporal variabilities of summertime rainfall and water vapor transport exist between the two monsoon systems. The first modes of summertime rainfall in the SASM and EASM regions reveal a significant negative correlation on the interannual and the interdecadal timescales. This close relationship may be linked by a meridional teleconnection in the regressed summertime rainfall anomalies from India to North China through the southeastern part over the Tibetan Plateau, which we refer to as the South Asia/East Asia teleconnection pattern of Asian summer monsoon rainfall. The authors wish to dedicate this paper to Prof. Duzheng YE, and commemorate his 100th anniversary and his great contributions to the development of atmospheric dynamics.

  • Equatorial wave expansion of instantaneous flows for diagnosis of
           equatorial waves from data: Formulation and illustration
    • Authors: Cory Barton; Ming Cai
      Pages: 1219 - 1234
      Abstract: Abstract This paper presents a method for expanding horizontal flow variables in data using the free solutions to the shallow-water system as a basis set. This method for equatorial wave expansion of instantaneous flows (EWEIF) uses dynamic constraints in conjunction with projections of data onto parabolic cylinder functions to determine the amplitude of all equatorial waves. EWEIF allows us to decompose an instantaneous wave flow into individual equatorial waves with a presumed equivalent depth without using temporal or spatial filtering a priori. Three sets of EWEIF analyses are presented. The first set is to confirm that EWEIF is capable of recovering the individual waves constructed from theoretical equatorial wave solutions under various scenarios. The other two sets demonstrate the ability of the EWEIF method to derive time series of individual equatorial waves from instantaneous wave fields without knowing a priori exactly which waves exist in the data as well as their spatial and temporal scales using outputs of an equatorial β-channel shallow-water model and ERA-Interim data. The third set of demonstrations shows, for the first time, the continuous evolutions of individual equatorial waves in the stratosphere whose amplitude is synchronized with the background zonal wind as predicted by quasi-biennial oscillation theory.

  • Variable and robust East Asian monsoon rainfall response to El Niño over
           the past 60 years (1957–2016)
    • Authors: Bin Wang; Juan Li; Qiong He
      Pages: 1235 - 1248
      Abstract: Abstract Severe flooding occurred in southern and northern China during the summer of 2016 when the 2015 super El Niño decayed to a normal condition. However, the mean precipitation during summer (June–July-August) 2016 does not show significant anomalies, suggesting that—over East Asia (EA)—seasonal mean anomalies have limited value in representing hydrological hazards. Scrutinizing season-evolving precipitation anomalies associated with 16 El Niño episodes during 1957–2016 reveals that, over EA, the spatiotemporal patterns among the four categories of El Niño events are quite variable, due to a large range of variability in the intensity and evolution of El Niño events and remarkable subseasonal migration of the rainfall anomalies. The only robust seasonal signal is the dry anomalies over central North China during the El Niño developing summer. Distinguishing strong and weak El Niño impacts is important. Only strong El Niño events can persistently enhance EA subtropical frontal precipitation from the peak season of El Niño to the ensuing summer, by stimulating intense interaction between the anomalous western Pacific anticyclone (WPAC) and underlying dipolar sea surface temperature anomalies in the Indo-Pacific warm pool, thereby maintaining the WPAC and leading to a prolonged El Niño impact on EA. A weak El Niño may also enhance the post-El Niño summer rainfall over EA, but through a different physical process: the WPAC re-emerges as a forced response to the rapid cooling in the eastern Pacific. The results suggest that the skillful prediction of rainfall over continental EA requires the accurate prediction of not only the strength and evolution of El Niño, but also the subseasonal migration of EA rainfall anomalies.

  • Evolution of surface sensible heat over the Tibetan Plateau under the
           recent global warming hiatus
    • Authors: Lihua Zhu; Gang Huang; Guangzhou Fan; Xia Qu; Guijie Zhao; Wei Hua
      Pages: 1249 - 1262
      Abstract: Abstract Based on regular surface meteorological observations and NCEP/DOE reanalysis data, this study investigates the evolution of surface sensible heat (SH) over the central and eastern Tibetan Plateau (CE-TP) under the recent global warming hiatus. The results reveal that the SH over the CE-TP presents a recovery since the slowdown of the global warming. The restored surface wind speed together with increased difference in ground-air temperature contribute to the recovery in SH. During the global warming hiatus, the persistent weakening wind speed is alleviated due to the variation of the meridional temperature gradient. Meanwhile, the ground surface temperature and the difference in ground-air temperature show a significant increasing trend in that period caused by the increased total cloud amount, especially at night. At nighttime, the increased total cloud cover reduces the surface effective radiation via a strengthening of atmospheric counter radiation and subsequently brings about a clear upward trend in ground surface temperature and the difference in ground-air temperature. Cloud–radiation feedback plays a significant role in the evolution of the surface temperature and even SH during the global warming hiatus. Consequently, besides the surface wind speed, the difference in ground-air temperature becomes another significant factor for the variation in SH since the slowdown of global warming, particularly at night.
