Topographic vorticity-mode mesoscale-beta (TVM) model
The 3-dimensional, flat-terrain, finite-difference URBMET vorticity, mode mesoscale-beta model has been modified to include topographic effects. The resulting topographic vorticity-mode mesoscale-beta (TVM) model is hydrostatic, Boussinesq, and incompressible. The prognostic turbulent kinetic energy equation has been improved, and use of an implicit vertical diffusion scheme has increased the minimum allowable time step of integration. This paper presents the details of the TVM formulation, boundary conditions, and numerics.
