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 controlling 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
