  • Technical Note: Coupling of chemical processes with the Modular Earth Submodel System (MESSy) submodel Tracer
    Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, 2008
    Co-Authors: P. Jöckel, A. Kerkweg, J. Buchholz-dietsch, H. Tost, R. Sander, A. Pozzer
    Abstract:

    The implementation of processes related to chemistry into Earth System Models and their coupling within such systems requires the consistent description of the chemical species involved. We provide a tool (written in Fortran95) to structure and manage information about constituents, hereinafter referred to as Tracers, namely the Modular Earth Submodel System (MESSy) generic (i.e., infrastructure) submodel Tracer. With Tracer it is possible to define a multitude of Tracer sets, depending on the spatio-temporal representation (i.e., the grid structure) of the model. The required information about a specific chemical species is split into the static meta-information about the characteristics of the species, and its (generally in time and space variable) abundance in the corresponding representation. Tracer moreover includes two submodels. One is Tracer_FAMILY, an implementation of the Tracer family concept. It distinguishes between two types: type-1 families are usually applied to handle strongly related Tracers (e.g., fast equilibrating species) for a specific process (e.g., advection). In contrast to this, type-2 families are applied for tagging techniques. Tagging means the artificial decomposition of one or more species into parts, which are additionally labelled (e.g., by the region of their primary emission) and then processed as the species itself. The type-2 family concept is designed to conserve the linear relationship between the family and its members. The second submodel is Tracer_PDEF, which corrects and budgets numerical negative overshoots that arise in many process implementations due to the numerical limitations (e.g., rounding errors). The submodel therefore guarantees the positive definiteness of the Tracers and stabilises the integration scheme. As a by-product, it further provides a global Tracer mass diagnostic. Last but not least, we present the submodel PTRAC, which allows the definition of Tracers via a Fortran95 namelist, as a complement to the standard Tracer definition by application of the Tracer interface routines in the code. Tracer with its submodels and PTRAC can readily be applied to a variety of models without further requirements. The code and a documentation are included in the electronic supplement.

  • metrology and traceability of u pb isotope dilution geochronology earthtime Tracer calibration part i
    Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, 2015
    Co-Authors: Daniel J Condon, Randall R Parrish, Blair Schoene, Noah Mclean, Samuel A Bowring
    Abstract:

    Mixed 235U-233U-205Pb(-202Pb) Tracers for 12 U-Pb isotope-dilution isotope ratio mass spectrometry have been prepared under the auspices of the EARTHTIME Initiative. The methods and results for the preparation and calibration of the U/Pb ratio and isotopic abundances are given, and the various sources of uncertainty are discussed and quantified. The accuracy of the EARTHTIME U-Pb Tracer isotopic composition can be traced back to SI units via a series of assay and isotopic composition reference materials combined with the experiments described herein. The parameters used in calculating U/Pb ratios (and inferentially U-Pb dates) have correlated uncertainties that result in a total uncertainty contribution to 206Pb/23820 U dates of ±<0.03% (95% confidence). For suitable terrestrial materials such as zircon, when other sources of uncertainty have been minimised (e.g., opensystem behaviour, 238U/23522 U variation, intermediate daughter product disequilibrium, common Pb, etc.) the U-Pb Tracer calibration uncertainty is a limiting factor in the accuracy of U-Pb geochronology – but less so than the uncertainty in the 238U and 235U decay constants (±0.11 and 0.14% 2σ). The calibration approach of the mixed EARTHTIME 235U-23325 U-205Pb(-202Pb) Tracers, in addition to updated values for reference materials (e.g., mixed gravimetric reference solutions), and parameters (e.g., Pb reference material assay), can be applied to other laboratory-specific U-Pb Tracers and will facilitate the generation of accurate and directly inter-comparable U-Pb data.
