Documentation of refs for no_mp_heating

Postby erikwkolstad » Tue Nov 03, 2015 6:48 am

Dear all,

I've studied the effects of latent heat release (and other processes) on a mesoscale polar low, and for that I've used the no_mp_heating switch. Now that I'm writing it up, I can't find any documentation or references for what is actually done. All I can find is Jimy Dudhia's presentation, where he writes:

- Zeroes out the temperature tendency
– Equivalent to no latent heat
– Other microphysics processes not affected

Does anyone know where I can find more documentation, or ideally a reference? Thanks in advance!
