Errors in the solar heating rates (W m-2) in the LM at the surface for 12.30 h UTC.
(a) The two-stream calculation of the solar surface flux is the reference field
(b) Cloud cover of low clouds
(c) Total cloud cover
(d) the 1-h persistence assumption,
(e) the adaptive perturbation scheme,
(f) the adaptive search scheme. The corresponding errors are shown in the same order in the third row.
