Updates of the Site
  • June 27 2006
    Problem: forcings of 2 days were missing, error in the hybrid coordinates
    Reported by: Pascal Marquet
    Solved by: New updated netcdf is put on the web.
  • July 01 2006
    Problem: Error in the profile table for the 1d-composite case as given in the Appendix 1d
    Reported by: Roel Neggers
    Solved by: New profile table has been created and put in Appendix 1d .
  • July 13 2006 Problem: Net imbalance of the large scale forcings in the free atmosphere causing possible instabilities after 3 days.
    Reported by: Roel Neggers and Pascal Marquet
    Solved by: Prescribed large scale forcings of the 1d composite case have been modified for z > 2100 m in the 1d setup description< .
  • August 23 2006: Names of surface momentum flux and the precipation on the various levels have been changed 1d setup description< .
  • August 23 2006: rho has been put in the file for instanteneous profiles and has been removed from the time series. 1d setup description< .
  • August 23 2006: A Note has been made that for the independent height levels zh and zf the values for t=0 should be used. 1d setup description< .
  • August 23 2006: A Note has been made that for the flux profiles of heat, moisture and momentum the sum of the contributions for the convection and the pbl scheme is expected.
  • August 23 2006: The units for the integrated TKE were wrong. This has been rectified. 1d setup description< .
  • August 24 2006: For those who have trouble generating netcdf for the SCM composite case an alternative ascii format has been formulated .
  • August 31 2006: Please send a model description of your SCM. Typical points to adress are give here has been formulated .
  • March 8 2011: View the submitted RICO results interactively at the GCSS model intercomparison website .
