Objectives of the CERES campaign (Dolman et al. , BAMS, 2006) I Objectives II Atmospheric CO 2 modeling III Intercomparisons of models Ø Objectives : to establish a regional budget of CO 2 : • 10 surface flux sites (energy, water and CO 2) on different types of land cover (forest, vineyards, maize, wheat, rapeseed, beans, grassland, bare soil) • Atmospheric Boundary Layer (ABL) data: RS, aircrafts, radar UHF… • CO 2 concentrations observations in and above the ABL: Biscarosse, La Cape Sud, Marmande + aircrafts: Piper Aztec, Dimona, Sky Arrow • ‘Flux divergence’ flights • LAI monitoring • Surface and soil properties (Ts, soil water content…) Ø Experiment in Les Landes, S-W of France: - from may-16 to june-25 2005 - 21 IOP days

Conclusion (1) : Atmospheric CO 2 modeling with Meso-NH ØThe CERES database is well adapted to study the CO 2 and water budget at the regional scale Ø The meso-scale dynamical processes such as sea and vegetation breezes have a strong impact on the spatial and temporal variability of CO 2 concentrations in the ABL ØThe atmospheric CO 2 budgeting using meso-scale modelling allows to estimate the contribution of advection and turbulent transport processes on the spatio-temporal variation of the regional CO 2 concentration

Intercomparison of 5 meteorological models Vertical profiles of CO 2 concentrations (may-27) zi Forest zi Crops afternoon vertical profile morning vertical profile CO 2 concentrations ABL height vs CO 2 concentrations: Ø the CO 2 concentrations decrease when the ABL is developing due to vertical mixing and assimilation Ø the CO 2 depletion is higher over the crops area whereas the vertical mixing in lower than over the forest Ø Generally, the models reproduce the observed trend.
Conclusion (2) : Intercomparison of 5 regional meteorological models Ø 5 models have simulated two contrasted days of CERES according a similar model configuration ØThe surface fluxes are easier to simulate over fully developed crops than over the pine forest. The windy june-06 case is better simulated. Ø The surface CO 2 fluxes on the warm may-27 are poorly simulated by most models. Ø Large discrepancies are observed in the simulation of the ABL development and potential temperature ØThe CO 2 concentrations simulated in the ABL present a correct evolution between the morning and the afternoon profiles.
