Influence of different convection parameterisations in a GCM

  title={Influence of different convection parameterisations in a GCM},
  author={Holger Tost and Patrick J{\"o}ckel and J Lelieveld},
In global models of the atmosphere convection is parameterised, since the typical scale of this process is smaller than the model resolution. Here we address some of the uncertainties arising from the selection of different algorithms to simulate this process. Four different parameterisations for atmospheric convection, all used in state-of-the-art models, are implemented in the model system ECHAM5/MESSy for a consistent inter-comparison and evaluation against observations. Relatively large… CONTINUE READING
