LES Simulations from ERA-Interim Reanalysis

I ran the UCLA large eddy simulation (LES) model to generate a wide variety of marine boundary layer cloud structure for developing cloud remote sensing methods using 3D radiative transfer. Bjorn Stevens, the author of the UCLA LES model, helped me with running the model. I initialed the LES model with atmospheric profiles from random columns at specific times from the ECMWF ERA-Interim reanalysis.
