COSP is the Cloud Feedback Model Intercomparison Project (CFMIP) Observation Simulator Package.
This is a fork of CFMIP/COSPv1 with for use with the Automatic Lidar and Ceilometer Framework (ALCF). It includes support for a surface lidar and additional lidar wavelengths: 532 nm, 910 nm and 1064 nm.
- Mie scattering from ice is treated as the same as Mie scattering from liquid.
- No precipitation or aerosol simulation (not present in COSPv1).
Additional COSP configuration options:
surface_lidar– Surface lidar switch (1 – surface, 0 – spaceborne)
lidar_wavelength– Lidar wavelength (nm)
