Phase I cases
Additional Phase I cases ("subcases")
In addition to the above cases, additional variants were requested from participants in January 2010. These "subcases" will help in the interpretation of the results of the main cases, but because of their idealized atmospheric and surface conditions, they are no longer constrained by the radiative observations. The list of subcases is:
The spectrally constant albedo comes from weighing the spectral albedo by the CHARTS spectral flux reaching the surface. A summary of the spectrally integrated (broadband) output for the SW subcases from reference CHARTS calculations can be downloaded here. The spectrally detailed CHARTS files for the subcases can be downloaded here, while the results for the two LW subcases are now also available.
For questions or problems reading/interpreting the input/output dataset please contact Lazaros Oreopoulos. For specific questions on LBLRTM or CHARTS performance contact Eli Mlawer.
