Hi all,

I am curious what the latent heating (or H_DIABAITC) term is defined as in the phys/module_mp_wsm6.f90 file.

Thank you for any help!

H_DIABATIC is calculated in dyn_em/module_big_step_utilities_em.F, which is a diagnostic variable derived from microphysical tendency. It is not specifically designed for WSM6. Please take a look at the code dyn_em/module_big_step_utilities_em.F.
