The following definitions of the ``paper variables'' are given in Neelin and Zeng [1] and Zeng et al. [2]. We present them here as an aid in interpreting the above variable keys.

Parameter definitions:

where is the gross moist stability, and is the dry static
energy. Once again, remember that a term has been absorbed into
*T* in the Neelin and Zeng [1] and Zeng et al.
[2] equations.

Temperature, moisture, and momentum variable definitions:

Recall that the vertical averaging operator is defined as follows in Neelin and Zeng [1]:

Below are alternative (but equivalent) expressions for a few of the code variables given in the tables in Section 2.4.2:

Some final notes: is the depth of the troposphere (in
pressure units), and *g* is the gravitational acceleration at the Earth's
surface. Remember that *L* is
subsumed in the terms, and is subsumed in the terms
in Neelin and Zeng [1] and Zeng et al.
[2].
