    Question about the extra model top layer for radiation

    Hi, I am looking at the radiation calculation in CAM, and notice this in the CAM3 documentation: I wonder if this is still true in CAM5 or CAM6, and if there is any more detailed documentation on how the properties of this layer are chosen? Thanks!

    Outlining the major differences between CCSM3 and Chou's Radiation Model

    Hello, I was looking at this site that shows a variety of things, including the equilibrium surface temperature given a series of specified parameters. It gives an option to swap between the CCSM3 and the Chou Model, of which I think more can be found about here. The models output different...

    Scaling factor for aerosol optical depth in CAM 6

     In CAM 3, it was possible to add a scaling factor for aerosol mass using SCL_RF options. I was wondering if there is any way to do this in CAM 6. I was also wondering if it is possible to scale aerosol optical depth instead of the mass. Ideally, I would want to do this with radiation...
