Dear ccm3 users:

I have a question related to one of the error messages of ccm3, "SURPHY",
which indicates an imbalance of surface flux.

As far as I know, ccm3 can initialize LSM with "arbitrary initialization",
which sets TG (ground temperature) and TV (vegetation temperature) to a
constant value as 283K all over the globe. Is this kind of initalization
going to cause a problem of "SURPHY", especially at poles where the
realistic ground temperature is much less than 283K? Could any of you
share your thoughts with me?
