Project: The Modular Earth Submodel System (MESSy) - The Modular Earth Submodel System (MESSy) is a software providing a framework for a standardized, bottom-up implementation of Earth System Models (or parts of those) with flexible complexity. Bottom-up means, the MESSy software provides an infrastructure with generalized interfaces for the standardized control and interconnection (=coupling) of low-level ESM components (dynamic cores, physical parameterizations, chemistry packages, diagnostics etc.), which are called submodels. MESSy comprises currently about 60...
The Simple Urban Radiation Model (SURM) is a model to calculate mean radiant temperature in an idealised symmetric street canyon. The model can be used either stand-alone with standard meteorological parameters as inputs or for radiation modifications in a built-up area with radiation fluxes from a mesoscale model or measurements.
The module allows for taking into account wind farms in atmospheric modelling via the wind farm parametrization by Fitch et al, 2012 in the regional climate model COSMO-CLM. Prerequisite is a wind farm mask file.
