Lagrangian particle random walk (Source File: lagrange.F90)


    subroutine lagrange(nlev,dt,zlev,nuh,w,npar,active,zi,zp)

Here a Lagrangian particle random walk for spatially inhomogeneous turbulence according to Visser (1997) is implemented. With the random walk, the particle $ i$ is moved from the vertical position $ z_i^n$ to $ z_i^{n+1}$ according to the following algorithm:

\begin{displaymath}\begin{array}{rcl} z_i^{n+1} &=& z^n_i + \partial_z \nu_t (z^...
...al_z \nu_t (z^n_i)\Delta t) \Delta t\right\}^{1/2}, \end{array}\end{displaymath} (246)

where $ R$ is a random process with $ \langle R \rangle =0$ (zero mean) and and the variance $ \langle R^2 \rangle=r$. Set visc_corr=.true. for evaluating eddy viscosity in a semi-implicit way. A background viscosity (visc_back) may be set. The variance $ r$ of the random walk scheme (rnd_var) has to be set manually as well here.
