Comparison of vertical profiles between SCALE-LES and a previous intercomparison study. Horizontally averaged profile of the a liquid water potential temperature (θ l) and total water mixing ratio (q t), b liquid water mixing ratio (q l), c precipitation flux, d cloud fraction, e vertical velocity in cloud core, f variance of resolved w’, g w’θ l , h w’q t , and i horizontal wind velocity, averaged during the last 4 h. The solid line indicates the results of SCALE-LES. The dashed line, heavy gray shading, and light gray shading indicate the median, range between the first and third quartiles, and range between the maximum and minimum values, respectively, of the previous intercomparison study (van Zanten et al. 2011)
