Total merged longwave heating rate

Is this typical of what WACCM produces for QRL_TOT?  We were concerned about the strong cooling seen near the model top.

Thanks,

Yes, that is typical. Temperatures are very high in the thermosphere due to strong solar heating. High temperatures generate high cooling rates.

Thanks, Mike.  Just wanted to be certain.
