1. Delp, Jacquelyn M. AN ESTIMATION OF LOWER TROPOSPHERIC MIXING DERIVED FROM INVERSE MODELING OF BOUNDARY LAYER WATER VAPOR ISOTOPOLOGUES ON GRACIOSA ISLAND, AZORES.

Degree: Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, 2019, University of New Mexico

Recent studies have shown water vapor isotopologues to be sensitive tracers of mixing processes that govern low-cloud feedback in climate models. In this study, we develop an inverse model (MBL Mix inverse model) that uses one year of isotope and humidity observations from Graciosa Island, Azores to estimate mixing for four seasons. We show the dry end-member of the model, the lower free troposphere (LFT), can be represented using Rayleigh fractionation. Isotope observations from Graciosa Island are compared to other field locations to discuss controls on isotopic variability other than mixing. Output from the MBL Mix inverse model shows the lowest (highest) fractions of seasonal-scale average mixing correspond to months previously observed to have the highest (lowest) occurrence of low-clouds. The model additionally shows a minimum mixing of approximately 0.3 is required to match observed data in all seasons in the Azores. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Joseph Galewsky, Dr. David Gutzler, Dr. Zachary Sharp.
