This chapter addresses the shortcomings that emerge in global climate models attributable to the interactions between resolved and parametized unresolved cloud-related processes (convection, turbulence, clouds and radiation). It also discusses alternative modeling techniques to study perturbed clouds, which include the numerical weather prediction model, large eddy simulation models, cloud-resolving models, and super-parameterized single column models.

Keywords:   global climate models, convection, turbulence, radiation, numerical weather prediction, large eddy simulation, cloud-resolving models, single column models
