Venus Topography and Boundary Conditions in 3D General Circulation Modeling

28 Nov 2017  ·  Way M. J., Wang June ·

We explain how GCM boundary condition choices such as ocean-lake coverage-depth, rotation rate, atmospheric constituents and other factors influence surface conditions in ROCKE-3D paleo-Venus simulations. Studies such as these should also be considered when examining liquid water habitability in similar exoplanet experiments... We also describe how one ingests 3D topographic data from NASAs Venus Magellan Spacecraft radar observations into the ROCKE-3D Planetary General Circulation Model. read more
