Deep Convective-Aerosol Interactions in Climate Models (Invited Presentation)
In order for convective parameterizations in climate models to simulate deep convective-aerosol interactions, they will need to realistically generate probability distributions of vertical velocity. This presentantation will discuss the deep convection parameterization in GFDL's CM3 climate model. CM3's convective veritical velocities will be compared against observations and cloud-resolving models. Implications for interactions between aerosols and deep convection will be discussed.
