IPCC carbon variables (c3PftFrac +contfrac)

Reported by: dsolyga Owned by: cpipsl
Priority: major Milestone: ORCHIDEE 2.0
Component: Validation Version: orchidee_1_9_6
Keywords: ipcc output Cc: nvuilsce


The calculation of the IPCC variable c3PftFrac includes only grass and crops but does not include trees. The flag is_c3 is not very consistent because it means actually "c3grass & c3crop" (misunderstanding from my part). So in the code (since 1.9.6), even we calculate c3PftFrac by :

       DO j=2,nvm
          IF(is_c3(j)) THEN
             vartmp(:) = vartmp(:) + veget_max(:,j)*contfrac*100

It was inherited from the AR5 version :


Moreover, the IPCC variables should not be multiplied by contfrac according Patricia. For instance, cProduct is the only IPCC variable not multiplied by contfrac. Is there a particular reason not to delete contfrac in the calculations ?


  • To correct the CMIP5 post-treatment, c3PftFrac should be calculated as follow :
       c3PftFrac + treeFracPrimDec + treeFracPrimEver
  • In the code, it is needed to change the default values of is_c3_mtc (set .TRUE. for tree meta-classes). This implies to modify the others loops using is_c3 (in routing and diffuco which use the wrong definition for this parameter).

Commit done to correct c3PftFrac : see [1091]. About the contfrac problem, it should be discussed later.

  • Owner changed from dsolyga to cpipsl
  • Status changed from new to assigned

comment:3 Changed 4 years ago by jgipsl

The "contfrac problem", done in trunk rev [4319], with correction in [4320].

comment:4 Changed 4 years ago by jgipsl

Still to be done : adapt monitoring in coupled configurations for nbp.

comment:5 Changed 4 years ago by jgipsl

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

Monitoring adapted in coupled configurations :
