More on NASA/GISS ModelE Viscous Dissipation: The Units

This post is a continuation of discussions of the modeling of viscous dissipation in GCMs. The issue has recently come up again over at Lucia’s Blog in this thread. The thread at Lucia’s is related to the posts on this Blog here, here, and here. I have also in the past commented on the issue at Climate Audit, Professor Pielke Sr.’s Climate Science, and Real Climate. The dissipation questions come up now and then in several Blogs.

Yet Even More NASA/GISS ModelE Coding

While pursing the NASA/GISS ModelE coding as part of getting back to the dissipation questions that have come up on Lucia’s Blog in this thread, I ran across yet even more interesting coding. The thread at Lucia’s is related to the posts on this Blog here, here, and here. The dissipation questions come up now and then in several Blogs.

But first, a short diversion.

Here’s some information that lends support to that observation.
