- The primary goal of the WCRP Workshop is to improve the development of global chemical transport models by intercomparison of model parameterizations from the major modeling groups around the world. The Global Climate Research Division of LLNL has been invited to participate in this study. A secondary goal of the workshop is to understand how the current models transport short-lived chemical species. Chemical change in the troposphere of the important trace species such as OH and ozone are dependent on the distribution of NOₓ(=NO + NO₂) which is short-lived (hours to days) and has a wide variety of sources. Three case scenarios representing an A: surface source (natural radon source), B: aircraft source, and C: lightning source run for both the winter and summer seasons have been prescribed for the model intercomparison. The figures and tables presented in this report represent the results of running these 3 case scenarios with the Lagrangian version of the LLNL GRANTOUR model. Complete descriptions of the three case scenarios are given in Appendix A. Appendix B gives an example using the Case A: Dec-Jan-Feb, Natural Radon Source to describe the GRANTOUR run specifications. The other case runs for this report change only season and/or source of emissions.
