When convection is parameterized in an atmospheric circula tion model, what types of waves are supported by the parameterization? Several studies have ad dr ssed this question by finding the linear waves of simplified tropical climate models with convective param eterizations. In this paper’s simplified tropical climate model, convection is parameterized by a nonlinear p reci itation term, and the nonlinearity gives rise to precipitation front solutions. Precipitation fronts are solutions where… CONTINUE READING
