The following tables provide a key relating variables and constants in the code with their counterparts in the QTCM1 papers by Neelin and Zeng  and Zeng et al. . A list of selected definitions of some of the variables given in the QTCM1 papers follows the tables.
Note though that some of the variables given in the tables below are commented out in the released version of the code. The abbreviation ``non-dim'' means non-dimensional. Table I in Neelin and Zeng  give the values for selected parameters and coefficients. Table 3 in Zeng et al.  gives values for selected land parameterization coefficients.
Also, in the main QTCM1 papers [1, 2],
is given in units of , while in the model,
T1 is in units of K.
Thus, in this manual, everywhere you see , you should assume that
it includes a factor of . Thus, . Similarly,
for humidity terms, a factor of L is subsumed into moisture. Thus,
as a summary:
