Air temperature field is not created in simulation

Postby Mosaicinsights » Thu Apr 30, 2020 1:24 am

Hello,

I've very new to ENVI-MET and while running test simulations based on the video tutorials I noticed that none of my simulations produce an Air Temperature field. I get air temperature change and air temperature delta but not the air temperature.

I've tried to attach a file but that didn't seem to work.

Thank you for your advice,
Steph

Hi Steph,

We simply renamed it to Potential Air Temperature since that is what the output is showing.

Best regards,
Tim

Hi Tim,

Thank you for your help, truly a beginners corner question!

Is it the standard meteorological potential temperature (theta)? Or can I treat it as the same as the air temperature?

Thank you,
Steph

Hi Steph,

Yes, it is the official potential temperature (theta). Since ENVI-met simulations run with standard pressure of 1013 hPa right now, you can handle it as air temperature as well. However, we renamed it already because we plan to add pressure in the model in future and would thus have a difference between potential and absolute air temperature.

Best regards
Tim
