Model outputs 1: all simulations excluding mode 2 sensitivity tests



This dataset contains the model outputs for all simulations except the mode 2 sensitivity studies. Data file structure The model output files are provided in the netCDF file format (.nc). The model output filename convection is as follows:

where depth (deep or shallow) indicates the cloud depth, aerosol (natural or nearcity) indicates the aerosol size distribution, temp (cold or warm) indicates the cloud base temperature, updraft (05, 2 or 10) indicates the updraft speed, a(01,1,10)INP indicates the INP concentration, and # is a number and indicates the secondary ice production (SIP) mechanism (see details below).

# refers to the SIP as follows:

000 control (no SIP)
001 M1
002 CB
003 M1+CB
004 M2
005 M1+M2
006 M2+CB
007 M1+M2+CB
008 RS
009 RS+M1
010 RS+CB
011 RS+M1+CB
012 RS+M2
013 RS+M1+M2
014 RS+M2+CB
015 RS+M1+M2+CB

For example, refers to a simulation with no SIP mechanisms with a cloud depth of 1.3 km, a natural aerosol size distribution, a cloud base temperature of 0 °C, an updraft speed of 0.5 m s-1 and x1 INP concentration.
