Influence of condensate evaporation on water vapor and its stable isotopes in a GCM

  title={Influence of condensate evaporation on water vapor and its stable isotopes in a GCM},
  author={Jonathon S. Wright and Adam H Sobel and Gavin A. Schmidt},
[1] The direct effect of condensate evaporation on atmospheric water vapor and its isotopic composition is assessed in a climate model. The model contains two parallel hydrologic cycles, an active one which influences the model physics and dynamics and a passive one which does not. Two model simulations are performed, one in which passive cloud and precipitation can evaporate and one in which they cannot. The active hydrologic cycles, and thus the simulated circulations and temperatures, are… CONTINUE READING
