Can anyone explain how to formulate proper heat, water and ice budgets with the SCAM 5.3 CESM1.2.2? A list is given with brief decriptions, but I cannot find an exact definition of what these terms include. For example PTTEND is the same numbers as ZMDT. The first is supposed to be total physics T tendency and the second is supposed to be Zhang-McFarlane T tendency. What does DTCOND (moist processes) include? I've spent some time trying to reverse-engineer what these things are, but that is unsatisfying.
Where in the code can you see how these things are computed?
