WarningThere is a more recent version of this item available.

Description

This dataset contains atmospheric radiative fluxes and heating rates. These fluxes and heating rates were calculated in order to quantify the effect of precipitating hydrometeors (particularly rain) on the radiation budget of the atmosphere and thereby determine whether climate and weather models should include a treatment of the radiative effect of rain. The dataset includes 4 files. all_hydro.nc and no_rain.nc contain full resolution SW and LW radiative fluxes at the surface and top of atmosphere for calculations that include all hydrometeors and all hydrometeors except rain, respectively. hydro_rad_effects.nc includes results from additional calculations at a lower resolution. case_study_data.nc includes full vertical profiles of radiative fluxes and heating rates at full resolution for 3 points that were chosen as case studies.
