Abstract:

Topics in this report cover 1 Inclusion of anvil rain in cumulus parameterization scheme and 2 Prediction of fractional cloud cover and the outgoing long wave radiation in a global model. These two studies are closely interrelated in that the first addresses a substantial improvement for our definition of tropical cloud cover, while the second treats its application over the global belt via 4 to 6 day long prediction experiments.
