Energy transport through deep convection

  1. Mar 19, 2014 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I am currently undertaking my honours year in physics focusing on atmospheric physics.

    I am wondering if anyone knows where I can get a model to determine how much energy is moved to the top of the troposphere by deep convective "hot towers".

    I wish it was as simple as ball park estimating of synoptic type disturbances linked to deep convection and then Mz x Q for the entire tower x Area covered etc but the literature states otherwise,

    Mainly Rhiel and Malkus 1958 and 1979,

    I have exausted my searches for answers so this is a last effort to model this particular energy flow,

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
