Over the last few years a new type of global climate model (GCM) has emerged in which a cloud-resolving model (CRM) is embedded into each grid cell of a GCM. This new approach is frequently called a Multiscale Modeling Framework (MMF) or superparameterization. In this article we present a comparison of MMF output with radar observations from the NASA CloudSat mission, which uses a near nadir-pointing millimeter-wavelength radar to probe the vertical structure of clouds and precipitation. We… CONTINUE READING
