this is due in part to differences in radiation forcing and rainfall interception formulations. Agreement among sources of LCL varies with radiosonde launch site density, with the poorest correspondence in the tropics. Considering the strong correlation between AIRS and modeled LCL over the United States and western Europe, we argue that high confidence should be assigned to AIRS elsewhere at midlatitude where ground-based observations are lacking. Confidence at midlatitudes, however, does not

) further illustrates this relationship for the tropics and midlatitudes. It shows Ω E (S) − Ω E (W) plotted against the mean β from the control (W) ensemble for the “ WHS -corrected” case. Each point represents a grid cell between 60°N and 60°S. The influence of soil moisture on evaporation decreases with β to around β = 0.5, above which the coupling diagnostic is close to zero. Fig . 5. (left) Soil moisture–evaporation coupling against W ensemble-mean β , (middle) E mean against β mean, and
