Entrainment rates reversed? (UW_web and UW_wet)


I have a question about the two output variables by UW boundary layer module.

I looked at UW_web (Entrainment rate at CL base, CL) and UW_wet (Entrainment rate at CL top, CL). They are all zeros below 200 hPa all over the world in all of my runs, one of which is just out-of-box CESM with CAM5 (see the left profile plot in the picture I attached). The spatial distribution looks alright. So I reversed the vertical axis. However, the altitude of the non-zero values still looks low relative to the position of clouds and autoconversion rate (see the right three panels in the attachment).

Anyone looked at these variables before?

Thank you!
