aerosol optical depth in UM10.7

Reported by: zliu Owned by: willie
Component: UM Model Keywords: aerosol

UM Version: 10.7

Description

Hi,

In UM10.7,I try to add some aerosol optical depth (e.g. sulfate) into STASH for output, but I found the variable is in the lw section. Do we get the aerosol optical depth in sw?
Most of the aerosol optical depth for lw is actually zero because of their small radius. I have no idea why we get aerosol optical depth just for longwave.
Thanks.

Hi Zhen,

There is some discussion of the aerosol scheme in UMDP 020 "CLASSIC aerosol scheme" available from the Met Office Science repository service.

I hope that helps.
