Total diabatic heating calculation in WACCM6


I have a question about calculating total/net diabatic heating from WACCM6 output. What variables do we need? 

Some Previous studies (for example, Kwon et al., 2011, used DTCOND (T tendency - moist process), DTV (T vertical diffusion), DTH (T horizontal diffusive heating, not in the WACCM output list), QRL (long wave heating rate), and QRS (solar heating rate). However, DTH is not included in WACCM output list. 

We also notice that WACCM has output variables, QRS_TOT and QRL_TOT.

Could someone falimiar with daibatic heating caclulation have some comments or suggestions? 

Thank you in advance.
