[PPS05-P08] Development of a Venus' cloud formation scheme for a convection resolving model
Keywords:Venus atmosphere, convection, cloud formation, numerical modeling
Our cloud formation scheme is based on Imamura and Hashimoto (1998). The number densities of sulfuric acid (H2SO4) and water (H2O) in the gas and liquid phases are calculated. Sedimentation of H2SO4-H2O solution droplets and chemical reactions of sulfuric acid are also considered. The scheme is implemented into our convection resolving model developed by Sugiyama et al. (2009). The model is based on the quasi-compressible system (Klemp and Wilhelmson, 1978), and is used in the simulations of the atmospheric convections of Jupiter (Sugiyama et al., 2011, 2014) and Mars (Yamashita et al. 2017).
In our poster, we will show the details of our cloud formation scheme and demonstrate some results of our calculation using similar settings of Imamura et al. (2014).
