This chapter discusses the meso- and large observational strategies to reduce critical uncertainties in future cloud changes. It first discusses the key aspects of cloud simulations in large-scale models and their impact on climate, and then discusses the evaluation of cloud properties simulated by large-scale models with ground-based data and satellite data. The cloud-climate metrics to assess the relative reliability of climate change–cloud feedbacks are also explored.

Keywords:   cloud changes, cloud simulations, climate, large-scale models, cloud properties
