In recent years, some mass-flux parameterizations have been applied to the dry convective boundary layer (e.
Siebesma and Teixeira (2000) proposed a way of unifying the parameterization of the convective boundary layer, by combining eddy-diffusivity and mass-flux approaches, with a formulation based on similarity relations.
In Section 3, results from the ID model with the EDMF parameterization are compared against results from a Large Eddy Simulation (LES) model and from the ID model with the BL89 parameterization, for an idealized dry convective boundary layer case.
Siebesma and Teixeira (2000) showed that the mass-flux vertical profile in the convective boundary layer scales well with the standard deviation of the vertical velocity, [[sigma].
Siebesma and Cuijpers 1995) to simulate an idealized dry convective boundary layer evolution, based on the case of Nieuwstadt et al.
2004), the fractional entrainment rate [epsilon] was also obtained from LES results, considering the dry convective boundary layer case previously described (Nieuwstadt et al.
This new version of the EDMF approach based on TKE is tested for an idealized dry convective boundary layer case, similar to the one described above.
