Composition changes after the "Halloween" solar proton event : the high-energy particle precipitation in the atmosphere (HEPPA) model versus MIPAS data intercomparison study

Funke, B.; Baumgaertner, A.; Calisto, M.; Egorova, T.; Jackman, C.H.; Kieser, J.; Krivolutsky, A.; Lopez-Puertas, M.; Marsh, D.R.; Reddmann, T.; Rozanov, E.; Salmi, S.M.; Sinnhuber, M.; Stiller, G.P.; Verronen, P.T.; Versick, S.; Clarmann, T. von; Vyushkova, T.Y.; Wieters, N.; Wissing, J.M.

We have compared composition changes of NO, NO2, H2O2, O3, N2O, HNO3, N2O5, HNO4, ClO, HOCl, and ClONO2 as observed by the Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding (MIPAS) on Envisat in the aftermath of the “Halloween” solar proton event (SPE) in late October 2003 at 25–0.01 hPa in the Northern Hemisphere (40–90° N) and simulations performed by the following atmospheric models: the Bremen 2-D model (B2dM) and Bremen 3-D Chemical Transport Model (B3dCTM), the Central Aerological Observatory (CAO) model, Fin- ROSE, the Hamburg Model of the Neutral and Ionized Atmosphere (HAMMONIA), the Karlsruhe Simulation Model of the Middle Atmosphere (KASIMA), the ECHAM5/MESSy Atmospheric Chemistry (EMAC) model, the modeling tool for SOlar Climate Ozone Links studies (SOCOL and SOCOLi), and the Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model (WACCM4). The large number of participating models allowed for an evaluation of the overall ability of atmospheric models to reproduce observed atmospheric perturbations generated by SPEs, particularly with respect to NOy and ozone changes. We have further assessed the meteorological conditions and th ... mehr
