[1] The mosaic approach of Liang and Wang (1997) for the general circulation model (GCM) parameterization of subgrid cloud-radiation interactions is evaluated against the validated cloud-resolving model (CRM) simulation of the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) intensive observation period (IOP, June 22–July 17, 1997) at the Southern Great Plains (SGP) site. The CRM-generated cloud statistics determines the required characteristic structure differences between three primary cloud genera… CONTINUE READING
