The file qtcmpar.in (in
work) contains the
value of various physical parameters used by the model. See
Section 3.1 for more information. These
should not be changed by the average user. If you wish
to modify these parameters, please contact the QTCM1 development
team for information on the source code used to calculate their
Below is a brief description of some of the categories of variables described in qtcmpar.in:
b1shelp describe the temperature and humidity profiles.
GMq0rhelp describe the gross moist stability.
eps_cis used in our version of the Betts-Miller [15, 16, 17] convective parameterization.
CV0is related to the neutral drag coefficient. See subroutine
sfluxin qtcm.f for more details.
eps_1are related to momentum damping.
Tsrefis the reference surface temperature.
Cpgconverts heat flux into column heating rate.
Trefsis the surface value of the reference atmospheric temperature.
qrefsis the surface value of the reference atmospheric humidity.
