Hello to all,

I am running WRF/CHEM version 3.4.1
with ishallow=1 and cu_physics = 5.

Although RTHCUTEN 's values look normal,
RTHSHTEN outputs only zero data/elements.

Is this normal?
Has anyone worked (or tried to work) with this variable?

Thank you!
This is because the tendency caused by shallow convection is included in the tendency of deep convection. There is no separate output for shallow convection.
