Cloud-J 7.3c (2015 GMD) provides a practical and accurate method for modeling atmospheric chemistry.  Cloud-J now uses observations of the vertical correlation of cloud layers to define Maximum-Correlated groups of overlapping fractional area clouds with a column atmosphere. Cloud-J continues the use of Quadrature Columnn Atmospheres (QCAs) to approximate the too numerous Independent Column Atmospheres (ICAs) within a single latitude-longitude grid element. 

For the most recent codes related to Solar-J (photolysis & solar heating code) please go to anonymous ftp site at 128.200.14.8 and look under public/junoh/Solar-J.

Solar-J 7.5 (2017 GMDD) provides a practical and accurate method for modeling photoysis and heating rates.  The vis-ir extension to Cloud-J is taken from RRTMG-SW.
