The representation of unresolved clouds in radiation schemes of coarse-resolution weather and climate models has progressed noticeably over the past years. Nevertheless, a lot of room remains for improvement, as the current picture is by no means complete. The main objective of the present study is to advance the cloud–radiation interaction paramet...

Full-text available
The treatment of unresolved cloud-radiation interactions in weather and climate models has considerably improved over the recent years, compared to conventional plane-parallel radiation schemes, which previously persisted in these models for multiple decades. One such improvement is the state-of-the-art Tripleclouds radiative solver, which has one...
Article
An idealized, three‐dimensional, 1 km horizontal grid spacing numerical simulation of a rapidly‐intensifying tropical cyclone is used to extend basic knowledge on the role of mean and eddy momentum transfer on the dynamics of the intensification process. Examination of terms in the tangential and radial velocity tendency equations provides an impro...

Article
Full-text available
As experts researching weather, climate and climate change impacts, we have a professional and moral obligation to urge You, the policy makers, to take immediate action on improving the Slovenian climate change mitigation and adaptation policy. Climate change is already happening and its impacts will become increasingly more severe if we do not ins...
Article
Full-text available
The interaction between radiation and clouds represents a source of uncertainty in numerical weather prediction (NWP) due to both intrinsic problems of one-dimensional radiation schemes and poor representation of clouds. The underlying question addressed in this study is how large the NWP radiative bias is for shallow cumulus clouds and how it scal...

Article
Full-text available
The dependence of tropical cyclone intensification rate on the sea surface temperature (SST) is examined in the prototype problem for tropical cyclone intensification on an f-plane using a three-dimensional, non-hydrostatic numerical model. The effects of changing the SST are compared with those of changing the latitude examined in a recent paper....
Article
Full-text available
Motivated in part by a potential application to modelling tropical cyclones in the Australian region, mean radiosonde soundings are determined for the three northern Australian stations, Willis Island, Darwin and Weipa, during the core months of the cyclone season (December–February). More than 8500 individual soundings are examined in 30-year data...
