Introduction

The wake parameterization proposed by Grandpeix and Lafore (2010, hereafter GL) can be considered as a special application of the general mode decomposition approach proposed by Yano et al. (2005). According to the latter work, the mass flux–based parameterization, originally introduced by Arakawa and Schubert (1974, hereafter AS74), can be generalized by considering it as an approach based on segmentally constant mode decomposition [or segmentally constant approximation (SCA); Yano et al. 2010]. The idea of SCA consists of subdividing a gridbox domain into a number of
