Quantifying hydrometeor advection and the vertical distribution of cloud fraction over the SGP CART Site

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A single column model (SCM) is, in essence, an isolated grid column of a general circulation model (GCM). Hence, SCMs have rather demanding input data requirements, but do not suffer from problems associated with balance of a GCM. Among the initial conditions that must be used to describe the initial state of the SCM column are the vertical profile of the horizontal wind components and the vertical profiles of cloud water and ice. In addition, the large scale divergence and advective tendencies of cloud water and ice must be supplied as external parameters. Finally, the liquid and ice cloud amount ... continued below

Finally, the liquid and ice cloud amount as a function of height within the SCM column are required for model evaluation.
