Post-Processed Simulation Data of ICON-LEM-DE Absorbing Aerosol Perturbation Experiments

Senf, Fabian

Atmospheric fields extracted from ICON-LEM DE simulations and regridded onto a regular lon-lat grid with 5km grid spacing. Two ICON experiments were performed: one with present-day aerosol radiative effects and one with aerosol absorption completely switched off

* The simulation domain covers the Germany

* The simulation setup is described in Heinze et al. (2017) & Stevens et al. (2020) &

* Native grid spacing is 312 m for DOM02 & 625 m for DOM01

* '20130502_CCN_rad' experiment:
** is the simulation dataset incl. aerosol absorption
** is derived from /hpss/arch/bm0834/k203095/ICON_LEM_DE_JUQUEEN/hdcp2_final_2dom/20130502_CCN_rad

* '20130502_semi_direct_effect'
** is the simulation dataset excl.. aerosol absorption;
** is derived from /hpss/arch/bm0834/k203095/ICON_LEM_DE_JUQUEEN/hdcp2_final_2dom/20130502_semi_direct_effect
