This chapter assesses the effects of deep convective clouds in the perturbed climate system. To understand the role of deep convection in the climate system, model simulations are required across all scales. These models include large eddy simulation models, cloud models, or cloud system-resolving models (CSRMs). The chapter discusses the limitations of current cloud simulations and observational approaches, and also offers suggestions for future research.

Keywords:   deep convective clouds, deep convection, convection, large eddy simulation, cloud models, CSRMs, cloud simulations
