De 65-level definition for HARMONIE

For an impression of the height (m) of the model levels, three different atmospheric situations are being listed: winter, intermediate and summer.
Winter Intermediate summer
T2m [oC] -5 10 25
For each of the seasons the surface pressure is 1013 hPa, the vertical temperature gradient is 6.5 K/km up to the tropopause height of 8 km in winter, 10 km in the intermediate periods and 12 km in the summer. Above that, for this table, the atmosphere is supposed to be isothermal.
