[1] Mean climate and intraseasonal to interannual variability of two versions of the Community Climate System Model (CCSM) coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation model (CGCM) are analyzed. The first version is the standard CCSM, in which cloud effects on the large-scale circulation are represented via parameterizations. The second version includes(More)
Three general circulation models (GCMs) are used to analyze the impacts of air–sea coupling and super-parameterized (SP) convection on the Asian summer monsoon: Community Climate System Model (CCSM) (coupled, conventional convection), SP Community Atmosphere Model (SP-CAM) (uncoupled, SP con-vection), and SP-CCSM (coupled, SP). In SP-CCSM, coupling improves(More)
Mechanisms for the northward propagation (NP) of the boreal summer intraseasonal oscillation (BSISO) and associated Asian summer monsoon (ASM) are investigated using data from the interim ECMWF Re-Analysis (ERA-Interim, herein called ERAI) and the superparameterized Community Climate System Model (SP-CCSM). Analyzed mechanisms are 1) destabilization of the(More)
Cloud processes play a central role in the dynamics of the tropical atmosphere, but for many years the shortcomings of cloud parameterizations have limited our ability to simulate and understand important tropical weather systems such as the Madden-Julian Oscillation. Since about 2001, " super-parameterization " has emerged as a new path forward,(More)
[1] The impact of atmospheric internal variability on tropical instability wave (TIW) activity in the eastern equatorial Pacific is examined. To diagnose the atmospheric internal variability, two simulations were performed with a state-of-the-art coupled general circulation model that uses an eddy permitting ocean component model. Standard coupling(More)
There are presented the computational simulations of the optoelectronic effects in the biophysical processes involved by light absorption and the transmission of the membrane generated potential from the receptor cells to the neurons. The physical system is the compound eye of Drosophila Melanogaster flies. The experimental electroretinograms recorded at(More)
