[A-AS09] Cloud-Resolving Model Simulations for Climate and Weather Studies
Cloud-resolving models (CRMs) employs nonhydrostatic dynamic core, explicit microphysics and radiation processes to provide physically-realistic simulations of cloud structures, optical properties, and latent heat release, without parameterizing deep convection in coarse-resolution weather and climate models. CRMs can be run at a few km down to sub-km of horizontal grid spacing depending on science application and focused cloud systems. Over the past few decades, CRMs have been utilized in a variety of weather and climate studies; such as 1) understanding cloud-precipitation processes and interactions with aerosols, surface, radiation, and lightning processes, 2) evaluating and developing microphysics and convection with various in-situ and remote sensing observations, and 3) addressing climate issues to develop or replace convective-cloud parametrizations for global or regional atmospheric models. The goal of this session is to showcase the current efforts for these studies in the atmospheric community.
