Soil heat with SFCC

In this example, we use the preset SoilHeatTile to construct a Tile consisting of a soil column with heat conduction forced using air temperatures from Samoylov Island. We use the SFCC formulation of Painter and Karra (2014). For the purpose of demonstration, we use the apparent heat capacity form of the heat equation in this example (i.e. Heat.Diffusion1D(:T)).

using CryoGrid

First we set up the model:

forcings = loadforcings(CryoGrid.Presets.Forcings.Samoylov_ERA5_fitted_daily_1979_2020);
grid = CryoGrid.Presets.DefaultGrid_5cm
soilprofile, tempprofile = CryoGrid.Presets.SamoylovDefault
initT = initializer(:T, tempprofile)
sfcc = PainterKarra(swrc=VanGenuchten(α=0.1, n=2.0))
upperbc = TemperatureBC(forcings.Tair, NFactor(nf=0.6))
lowerbc = GeothermalHeatFlux(0.053u"W/m^2")
tile = CryoGrid.Presets.SoilHeatTile(upperbc, lowerbc, soilprofile, initT; grid=grid, freezecurve=sfcc)
tspan = (DateTime(2010,10,30),DateTime(2011,10,30))
u0, du0 = initialcondition!(tile, tspan)
prob = CryoGridProblem(tile, u0, tspan, saveat=3*3600.0, savevars=(:T,));
nothing #hide

... then solve it with the built-in forward Euler integrator.

sol = @time solve(prob);
out = CryoGridOutput(sol)

Finally, plot the resulting temperatures.

import Plots
zs = [5,10,15,20,25,30,40,50,100,500]u"cm"
Diagnostics.plot_at_depths(:T, out, zs, ylabel="Temperature (°C)")
