Atmospheric Convection
Convener: Cathy Hohenegger  | Co-Conveners: Leo Donner , Holger Tost , Jun-Ichi Yano 
 / Mon, 09 Apr, 08:30–12:00
 / Attendance Mon, 09 Apr, 17:30–19:00

This session deals with atmospheric convection, being dry, shallow, or deep convection. Contributions on these aspects resulting from the use of large-eddy simulations, convection-permitting simulations, coarser-resolution simulations using parameterised convection and observations are welcome. Particular topics of interest include:

-process studies on the lifecycle of convection
-factors controling the organisation / self-aggregation of convection and its importance for climate
-interactions of convection with other physical processes, e.g. related to the land surface, radiation
-interactions of convection with the large-scale circulation
-bias in the representation of convection in numerical weather prediction and climate models
-development of cumulus parameterisation
-impact of convection on predictability
-chemistry and chemical transport in convection
