Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to present simulation results of a thermal sub-model developed for the Florida Tech UTC-M sea-breeze model. The insertion of this thermal radiative model into the atmospheric planetary boundary layer model, allows calculation of time dependant heat flux boundary conditions at the air-land boundary that are derived from satellite data such as AVHRR and MODIS. The improved UTC-M planetary boundary layer model with this thermal sub-model is used to demonstrate the use of thermal inertia to help estimate heat fluxes at the land-air interface which in turn influences convergence and vertical fluxes, which then affects mesoscale meteorological wind and convergence predictions. We present thermal radiative model simulations and associated results due to the influence of the parameterization of the net surface radiation and thermal inertia using wavelength or channel specific data from MODIS and AVHRR satellite sensors. Results are presented for cloudless sky conditions.
