The ARM SCM ontercomparison study - overview and preliminary results for case 1

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Single-Column Model (SCM) Working Group in the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program has begun a series of SCM Intercomparison case studies to evaluate the adequacy of the forcing data sets and the progress of SCM formulations. There are nine modeling groups participating, which include eight SCMs: Ghan (PNNL), Randall/Cripe (CSU), Somerville/Iacobellis (Scripps/UCSD), Klein (NOAA/GFDL), Lohmann (Dalhousie), Stenchikov/Robock (Maryland, Rutgers), Zhang/Xie (SUNY Stony Brook), Sud/Wlaker (NASA/GSFC), and one 2-D cloud-resolving model: Xu (CSU). The first case study addresses the prescription of advective forcing, the methods used to derive SCM forcing terms, and the methods used to estimate surface flux forcing. ... continued below

Details of the SCM Intercomparison procedures are given elsewhere (Cederwall, et al., 1998).
