Short summary
We present an update to the Multi-Layer Urban Canopy Model by revisiting the parameterization of length scales based on high-resolution and validated large-eddy simulations. Additionally, the inclusion of dispersive fluxes in the parameterization schemes are also discussed. The results demonstrate that updated parameterizations improve the accuracy of the vertical exchange of momentum in the street canyon.
