Following has been written by Fuxing after the Orchidee Day Sept 2017 in

Four related variables in thermosoil_energy:

  • (1) variables coldcont_incr and surfheat_incr computed in thermosoil_energy, output as DelColdCont and DelSurfHeat (Accumulated change in surface layer cold content and heat; CMIP6 variables?);
  • (2) temp_sol_beg used to compute coldcont_incr and surfheat_incr;
  • (3) ptn_beg used by SUBROUTINE thermosoil_readjust.


  • (1) if DelColdCont and DelSurfHeat are not needed: remove thermosoil_energy (including variables coldcont_incr, surfheat_incr and temp_sol_beg); move ‘ptn_beg(:,:) = ptn(:,:)’ from ‘thermosoil_energy’ to ‘SUBROUTINE thermosoil_main’ (after CALL thermosoil_profile).
  • (2) if DelColdCont and DelSurfHeat are necessary: keep thermosoil_energy as it is, but change description of this SUBROUTINE.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

A mix of solution 1 and 2 has been done in the trunk rev [4682]:

  • subroutine is kept but renamed
  • ptn_beg=ptn is moved to thermosoil_main
