1.1.1. Science changes

  • Interactive gas-phase deposition routines from UKCA have been added to JULES, together with a variant version that removes the restriction on the surface tile configuration. See dry_dep_model. (#931)

1.1.2. General/Technical changes

  • Added a switch to allow interpretation of times in the model and the driving data as local solar time - see l_local_solar_time. (#1327)
  • Added a switch l_drive_with_global_temps so that JULES can be driven with global temperatures and climate patterns. (#1322)
  • Made Medlyn stomatal conductance, Farquhar C3 photosynthesis, and thermal acclimation available in the UM. (#1246)
  • Further work towards allowing layered soil carbon (l_layeredc = TRUE ) in the UM. (#1237)
  • A varying grey tile emissivity has been passed in to JULES - currently only available if selected in LFRic. (#1247)
  • OMP improvements in various routines. (#1310)
  • Enabled a call to CABLE albedo (part of ongoing work to provide access to CABLE). (#1314)
  • MORUSES and anthropogenic heat related metadata migrated to jules-shared to facilitate their implementation in LFRic. The simple two-tile urban scheme now no longer requires W/R as an input unless the total urban fraction only is specified in the ancillary data. (#1255)
  • Included the fab_jules app which builds JULES using Fab software. (#1331, 1364)
  • Updated compiler in JASMIN gfortran platform file. (#1347)
  • Upgraded rose stem testing on Met Office EXZ to use latest availiable CPE, and fixes for EXZ. (#1362, 1358)

1.1.3. Bugs fixed

  • Corrected a bug in the surf_ht_flux diagnostic when using the Flake lake model. (#1340)
  • Fixing problems in the WARNING output messages. (#1303)
  • Fixed a metadata/rose config error introduced by a bug in Rose. (#1363)

1.1.4. Changes to testing

  • Updated NCI rose stem tests. (#1266)

1.1.5. Documentation updates

  • Updates associated with many of the above changes and to module leaders file, and release notes. (#1275, 1343)
