Short summary
The Lagrangian particle dispersion model FLEXPART-AROME was built to study air mass transport around La Réunion, a volcanic island in the southwest Indian Ocean. To harmonize turbulent transport between the numerical weather prediction model and the transport model, turbulent kinetic energy from AROME is directly used in FLEXPART-AROME using discrete interfaces between different turbulent regions. An adaptive time step was implemented to satisfy physical constraints on turbulent transport.
