Set up of the ASTEX single-column model simulation

The initial profiles and time-varying boundary conditions are given in the file


We require 2 different vertical resolutions

  • Standard "operational" resolution. This should the resolution that is commonly used in the operational 3d version of the participating SCM
  • High resolution run. This is a vertical resolution that is state of the art for high resolution limited area NWP and will become state of the art for GCM's in the foreseeable future. The A and B coefficients and the corresponding pressures given a surface pressure of 1013.9 mb can be found in Appendix_Long_Run used for RICO. In the same appendix the initial profiles for this prescribed resolution can be found.
