Is the monthly output of AREL in-cloud average of grid-box average?

Hi~

I am looking at the monthly output of AREL in the Arctic. The value seems quite small. I wonder whether this monthly output from CAM5 is in-cloud average or grid-box average?

I searched the archives and found this: http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/staff/andrew/diag_fields2.txt

AWNC is marked as in-cloud but AREL isn't.

So is it possible that the small AREL I see is caused by including zeros in the average?

Thank you!

Sizes are not defined out of cloud, so AREL is an in-cloud average as well. If there is not much water, there may not be large particles. 

Hope that helps.

Yes, it does! Thank you very much, Andrew!
