ABSTRACT
Ten single-column models (SCMs) from eight groups are used to simulate a nocturnal nonprecipitating
marine stratocumulus-topped mixed layer as part of an intercomparison organized by the Global Energy
and Water Cycle Experiment Cloud System Study, Working Group 1. The case is idealized from observa-
tions from the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus II, Research Flight 1. SCM simulations
