[1] The properties of equilibrated tropical convection are studied using a cloud‐resolving model with large‐scale dynamics parameterized by the weak temperature gradient (WTG) approximation. Model integrations are performed in both 2‐D and 3‐D geometries. The target profile toward which horizontal mean free tropospheric temperature is relaxed is held fixed, while sea surface temperature (SST) is varied. Consistent with previous studies, large‐scale ascent and precipitation increase under WTG as… CONTINUE READING
