For educational purposes, I am trying to build a 2D thermal convection model on atmospheric scale. The basis is a standard rayleigh-benard convection with prandtl/rayleigh numbers set accordingly. However there are other effects to be taken into consideration
a) pressure and temperature gradient in the airmass before convection starts
b) changing radiation influx during the “day”
c) humidity, and effects of water vapour in the air mass
d) horizontal movement of the air mass
Did anybody do something similar before? Any pointers where to start from?
Thanks in advance
