RRTM_SW: What's New
Date: April 2004
Updated DISORT v1 to DISORT v2.
Improved cloud properties routine to:
a) include scattering properties of spheres, based on
the parameterization by Key et al. in the STREAMER RT code.
b) to output a file (OUT_CLD_RRTM) with the cloud scattering
properties by layer.
c) changed name of cldprop_sw.f to cldprop.f to be consistent
with RRTM_LW structure.
Updated atmospheric properties module RRTATM to be compatible with
the most recent version of LBLATM v8.1.
Removed unnecessary duplicate calculations which occurred for option
Added new solar variability option (ISOLVAR).
Changed number of significant digits in the net flux output in OUTPUT_RRTM.
Changed format statement in subroutine readaer to allow more than
4 aerosol layers (naer, format statement 9010).
Updated instruction manual.
Modified makefiles to be double precision, as required to keep robust
results from DISORT.
