Modified CO2 Concentration

Postby Ridgeline » Tue Jun 23, 2009 2:25 pm


I am attempting to modify the CO2 concentrations by adjusting co2vmr in module_ra_rrtm.F (I am using the rrtm scheme for longwave radiation). I can adjust this from 330 ppmv to 470 ppmv, recompile, and rerun, but the results are unclear. Is this adjustment sufficient, or do I need to calculate additional factors elsewhere in the rrtm scheme? Also, is there any other location where I could validate that the CO2 adjustments are being made (either in output or in other affected routines)?

Many thanks,
-Alex (using WRFV2, but should be similar for WRFV3)
