The file qtcmpar.in (in `src`

and `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
values.

Below is a brief description of some of the categories of variables described in qtcmpar.in:

- Variables
`a1hat`

,`a1s`

,`V1s`

,`b1hat`

, and`b1s`

help describe the temperature and humidity profiles. - Variables
`GMsr`

,`GMsp`

,`GMqr`

,`GMqp`

,`GMs0r`

, and`GMq0r`

help describe the gross moist stability. -
`eps_c`

is used in our version of the Betts-Miller [15, 16, 17] convective parameterization. -
`CV0`

is related to the neutral drag coefficient. See subroutine`sflux`

in qtcm.f for more details. - Variables
`eps_0`

,`eps_10`

,`eps_01`

, and`eps_1`

are related to momentum damping. -
`Tsref`

is the reference surface temperature. -
`Cpg`

converts heat flux into column heating rate. -
`Trefs`

is the surface value of the reference atmospheric temperature. -
`qrefs`

is the surface value of the reference atmospheric humidity.
