  • DALES , M.C. van Zanten
  • UCLA , B. Stevens
  • WVU , D.C. Lewellen
  • COAMPS , S. Wang
  • UKMO , B. Shipway
  • RAMS , W. Cheng
  • MESO-NH , F. Couvreux
  • SAM , M. Khairoutdinov
  • JAMSTEC , A. Noda and K. Nakamura
  • Utah , P.A. Bogenschuts and S. Krueger
  • EULAG , J. Slawinska, A. Wyszogrodzki and W.W. Grabowski
  • 2DSAM , A. Cheng
  • DHARMA , A. Ackerman
  • RAMS@NOAA , H. Jiang
  • SAMEX , D. Mechem and Y. Kogan

In the profile and time serie figures an LES ensemble mean value (and for the time series min and max values as well) is presented, this value is based on an average of all the above LES's except RAMS and 2DSAM. Note that for the simulations without microphysics Utah is left out as well from the ensemble since no output is available.
The first six LESs submitted output wih an two moment bulk microphysics scheme; those LESs are represented by blue/gray colors in the figures. The next six LESs submitted output wih an one moment bulk microphysics scheme; those LESs are represented by orange/red colors in the figures. The last three LES's contain a bin microphysical scheme and are represented by the color green.
