How well can we represent the spectrum of convective clouds in a climate model? Comparisons between internal parameterization variables and radar observations

Abstract:

Current climate models cannot resolve individual convective clouds and hence parameterizations are needed. The primary goal of convective parameterization is to represent the bulk impact of convection on the gridbox-scale variables. Spectral convective parameterizations also aim to represent the key features of the subgrid-scale convective cloud field such as cloud top height distribution and in-cloud vertical velocities, in addition to precipitation rates. Ground-based radar retrievals of t...
