Case Studies

A series of studies comparing different cases of absorption with CAM 2_0_2. The first set of diagnostics compares the standard climatology (derived from MATCH acl02a96) and the tuning (rhminl) against the standard CAM202 run. The All_Aerosol case averages years 21 - 100 inclusive. The CAM202 case averages years 12-21 inclusive.

The second set of diagnostics compares the standard climatology (derived from MATCHacl02a96) and the tuning (rhminl) and ssa_dust = 1 case against the standard CAM202 run. The Carbon_Absorption case averages years 2 - 6 inclusive. The CAM202 case averages years 12-21 inclusive.

The third set of diagnostics compares the standard climatology (derived from MATCHacl02a96) and the tuning (rhminl) and ssa_carbon = 1 case against the standard CAM202 run. The Dust_Absorption case averages years 2 - 6 inclusive. The CAM202 case averages years 12-21 inclusive.

The fourth set of diagnostics compares the standard climatology (derived from MATCHacl02a96) and the tuning (rhminl) and ssa_carbon = ssa_dust = 1 case against the standard CAM202 run. The No_Absorption case averages years 2 - 6 inclusive. The CAM202 case averages years 12-21 inclusive.

The fifth set of diagnostics compares the standard climatology (derived from MATCHacl02a96) and the tuning (rhminl) and ssa_carbon = ssa_dust = g_carbon = g_dust 1 case against the standard CAM202 run. The No_Absorption_G case averages years 2 - 6 inclusive. The CAM202 case averages years 12-21 inclusive.

The sixth set of diagnostics compares the standard climatology (derived from MATCHacl02a96) and the tuning (rhminl) and ssa_carbon = ssa_dust = 1 and g_carbon = g_dust = .507 case against the standard CAM202 run. The No_Absorption_PG case averages years 2 - 6 inclusive. The CAM202 case averages years 12-21 inclusive.
