PC2: A prognostic cloud fraction and condensation scheme. II: Climate model simulations

Abstract:

A prognostic cloud fraction and prognostic condensate scheme (PC2) has been developed for the Met Office Unified Model. A companion paper discussed the motivation for a new scheme and described its formulation in detail. In this paper we describe the results of climate model simulations, concentrating on the mechanisms by which the cloud and condensate predicted by the model change between the Control and new scheme. We demonstrate that the detrainment of condensate from the convection scheme...
