Data from: Assessing uncertainties and approximations in solar heating of the climate system

Juno Hsu & Michael Prather
Plain language summary of the manuscript "Assessing Uncertainties and Approximations in Solar Heating of the Climate System" to be published in Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems: "Solar heating of the climate system-- the atmosphere, land surface, and ocean--drives the climate. Accurate numerical calculation of solar heating is a core component of the models we use to project and prepare for climate change. The community has identified many potential sources of error and published...

Solar-J and Cloud-J models version 7.6c

Michael Prather & Juno Hsu
This dataset includes the models (fortran code, matlab code, data) used to simulate the heating and photolysis rates in a spherical atmosphere. Both Solar-J v7.5 and Cloud-J v7.3c have been published previously, but with the publication of Prather and Hsu, "A round Earth for climate models" in PNAS (2019) both models have been merged in terms of overlapping subroutines and both now include option for (0) a flat-Earth atmosphere, (1) solar ray tracing through a...
