Multiple-Instance Superparameterization: 2. The Effects of Stochastic Convection on the Simulated Climate
Details:
  • Description:
    The cloud-permitting model (CPM) of the superparameterized Community Atmosphere Model (SP-CAM) is a stochastic parameterization. As reported in a companion paper, we have created a variant of SP-CAM, called MP-CAM, that uses the averaged feedback of 10 independent two-dimensional CPMs in each global model column, in place of the single CPM of SP-CAM. This ensemble-averaged feedback is interpreted as an approximation to the feedback from a deterministic parameterization. We present evidence that the multiple-instance superparameterization of MP-CAM is indeed more deterministic than SP-CAM. The climates of the SP and MP configurations are compared, giving particular attention to extreme precipitation events and convectively coupled large-scale tropical weather systems, such as the Madden-Julian Oscillation. A number of small but significant changes in the mean state climate are uncovered, and the deterministic parameterization slightly degrades the Madden-Julian Oscillation simulation.
