Using the Després and Lagoutière (1999) antidiffusive transport scheme: a promising and novel method against excessive vertical diffusion in chemistry-transport models

Mailler, Sylvain; Pennel, Romain; Menut, Laurent; Lachâtre, Mathieu

The potential of the antidiffusive transport scheme proposed by citxref_text.1#bib1.bibx6Després and Lagoutière (#bib1.bibx61999) for resolving vertical transport in chemistry-transport models is investigated in an idealized framework with very encouraging results. We show that, compared to classical higher-order schemes, the citxref_text.2#bib1.bibx6Després and Lagoutière (#bib1.bibx61999) scheme reduces numerical diffusion and improves accuracy in idealized cases that are typical of atmospheric transport of tracers in chemistry-transport models. The increase in accuracy and the reduction in diffusion are substantial when, and only when, vertical resolution is insufficient to properly resolve vertical gradients, which is very frequent in chemistry-transport models. Therefore, we think that this scheme is an extremely promising solution for reducing numerical diffusion in chemistry-transport models.
