Notes: Abstract A two dimensional model has been set up to investigate the circulation induced by an urban heat island in the absence of synoptic winds. The boundary conditions need to be formulated carefully and due to difficulties arising here, we restrict our attention to cases of initially stable thermal stratification. Heat island circulations are allowed to develop from rest and prior to the appearance of the final symmetric double cell pattern, a transitional multi-cell pattern is observed in some cases. The influence on the steady state circulation of various parameters is studied, among which are eddy transfer coefficients, the heat island intensity, the initial temperature stratification and the heat island size. Some results are presented for a case in which differential surface cooling beneath an initially stable atmosphere produces a circulation and an unstable layer capped by an elevated inversion over the city. It is hoped that this case is vaguely representative of the night-time heat island with no geostrophic wind.

Notes: Abstract The solution of the planetary boundary-layer equations by finite-difference methods has recently become very popular. Among recent papers using such methods, several use somewhat arbitrary finite-difference meshes and some do not make use of a constant flux or wall layer near the ground. It is shown that the use of finite differences right down to the ground can be a very inaccurate procedure when used in conjunction with an eddy viscosity or mixing length proportional to (z +z 0) orz near the ground. Such an approach can lead to results that are highly dependent on the finite-difference scheme used and virtually independent of the roughness length,z 0. A scheme using an expanding grid, based on the form chosen for mixing length or eddy viscosity, is proposed which gives good results with or without a surface layer in the case of a neutrally stratified atmosphere.

Notes: Abstract Two formulations of the stable atmospheric boundary layer are proposed for use in weather forecasting or climate models. They feature the log-linear profile near the surface, but are free from the associated critical Richardson number. The diffusion coefficients in the Ekman layer are a natural extension of the surface layer. They are locally determined using wind shear in one case and turbulent kinetic energy in the other. The parameterizations are tested in a one-dimensional model simulating the evolution of the nocturnal boundary layer with and without radiative cooling. Both formulations give very similar results, except near the top of the boundary layer where the transition to the free atmosphere is smoother with the wind shear formulation. A distinctive feature of these schemes is that they retain their simulating skill when resolution is reduced. This is verified for a wide range of situations. In practice, this means that there is no need for a large-scale model to have a level below 50 m or so.

We then use the experimental result that z/L ≈ Ri to deduce a formulation with an exponent -1/6 for the momentum stability function Φ m. This formulation also resolves the matching problem at the interface between the surface and Ekman layers. The proposed functions are found to remain reasonably close to another formulation that is well supported by observations and has exponents -1/2 for Φ h and -1/4 for Φ m. The intent of the proposals is mainly to clarify and simplify the parameterization of the convective boundary layer in present day atmospheric models, without significantly altering the results.

Notes: Abstract Five different formulations of the stability functions used forvertical turbulent transfer in atmospheric models are compared in a 1-Dmodel of the nocturnal boundary layer. One of them has a critical valueof the Richardson number around 0.2 and leads to the traditional log-linear profile, while other more empirical formulations maintain sometransfer at values of Ri around 1.0. Although no new observationalevidence is presented, it is suggested that the latter formulations aremore appropriate for use in atmospheric models because the unresolvedvariability inside a model grid box induces some turbulent transfer evenat super-critical values of the mean Ri. The study shows that themagnitude of the stability functions is principally important in theeffective range of Ri values found in the stable boundary layer and thattheir slopes near the origin are less important. This permits the use inatmospheric models of a simple explicit function of Ri containing asingle parameter, with results similar to those obtained with earlier morecomplex formulations. The results of the simulation with the 1-D model are used toexamine the errors introduced by the relatively thick surface layers of most atmospheric models, in which, for the stable case, the traditionalassumption of constancy of the fluxes with height is often clearlyviolated. When a height variation of the fluxes is introduced in surface-layer formulations, the error in the magnitude of the surface fluxes isdecreased with some of the formulations but not all of them. This lackof sensitivity is explained by a compensation mechanism in which theassumed decrease of the fluxes with height implies a correspondingdecrease of the Obukhov length which acts in the oppositedirection, reducing, and sometimes eliminating, the adverse effect of theunrealistic specification of the fluxes. It may be argued that thiscompensation mechanism also explains the wide range of validity of theMoini-Obukhov similarity theory.

Notes: Summary A 50-year-old male presented with intractable ascites due to systemic mastocytosis. The diagnosis of systemic mastocytosis was established by histology of the bone marrow which showed mast cell infiltration and fibrosis. Ascites was related to portal hypertension which was documented by esophageal varices at endoscopy and by an increase of wedged-free hepatic venous pressure gradient. Liver biopsy disclosed dense fibrosis of hepatic arterial and portal venule walls, resulting in complete obstruction of some portal radicles. Peliosis hepatis and fibrous deposits in the walls of hepatic venules were also present. Because of intractable ascites and significant malnutrition, a portacaval shunt was performed which cleared ascites and dramatically improved the general condition of the patient.
