This chapter describes the global simulations of climate change based on traditional cloud and cumulus parameterizations and the open issues in the global simulation of perturbed clouds. It discusses the emerging approaches in global process-oriented cloud modeling, which include global cloud-resolving models (GCRMs) and the multiscale modeling framework. In addition, the chapter considers cloud responses to an idealized global warming in a GCRM.

Keywords:   climate change, cumulus, perturbed clouds, cloud-resolving models, GCRMs, multiscale modeling framework, MMF, global warming
