We discuss and test the potential usefulness of single-column models (SCMs) for the testing of stochastic physics schemes that have been proposed for use in general circulation models (GCMs). We argue that although single-column tests cannot be definitive in exposing the full behaviour of a stochastic method in the full GCM, and although there are… (More)
