Toward unification of the multiscale modeling of the atmosphere

  author={Akio Arakawa and J.-H. Jung and C.-M. Wu},
As far as the representation of deep moist convection is concerned, only two kinds of model physics are used at present: highly parameterized as in the conventional general circulation models (GCMs) and explicitly simulated as in the cloud-resolving models (CRMs). Ideally, these two kinds of model physics should be unified so that a continuous transition of model physics from one kind to the other takes place as the resolution changes. With such unification, the GCM can converge to a global CRM… CONTINUE READING
