A new global model for the Martian atmosphere with a vertical domain extending from the surface into the thermosphere (at about 160-180 km) is presented with some preliminary results. The model is a grid point model with a semi-Lagrangian semi-implicit dynamical scheme that is used for weather forecasting by the Meteorological Service of Canada. The physics includes a comprehensive radiative transfer scheme for heating, a boundary and surface layer parameterization. The design of the model allows for diff…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
