This study proposes a new convective adjustment time‐scale (τ ) for the Kain–Fritsch eta (KFeta) scheme in the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model at high resolution which differs from the current scale‐aware function The validation was made in three cases of weakly forced deep convection over the Tibetan Plateau dress multiple scales of convection (cell scale meso-scale and synoptic scale) been achieved The require-ment to resolve the inner core including the eyewall the eye and inner spiral rainbands near the eyewall has led to the application of models with grid lengths of only a few kilometers (e g Liu et al 1997 Zhu et al

tical A modified Kain–Fritsch cumulus parameteriza-tion scheme (Castro et al 2002 Castro 2005) similar to that used in the operational version of the Eta Model is used to simulate convective precipitation The Kain– Fritsch parameterization is a mass-flux scheme that ac-counts for convective updrafts and downdrafts and

the BMJ scheme is modified to trigger deep convection only when the LFC is within 50 of cloud base The nclusion of such expliciti triggering of convection will be discussed further in the next section It should also be noted that the cloud efficiency parameter devised by Janjic (1994) acts to scale back the rate of precipitation

etrative convection originally developed by Tiedtke (1989) and later modified by Nordeng (1995) The modified convective parameterization scheme uses a CAPE closure instead of the original moisture conver-gence closure for deep convection Cloud amount is diagnosed using the Xu and Randall (1996) semiempiri-cal parameterization scheme

The impact of model resolution on the simulation of diurnal variations of precipitation over East Asia during the summer monsoon period of 2006 is investigated by conducting a suite of ensemble simulations of three different cumulus parameterization schemes (CPS) which are Kain-Fritsch Kain-Fritsch with a modified trigger function and Simplified Arakawa-Schubert and the convection

Much convection in the UK is under‐resolved by models at 1 5 km grid length (Bryan et al 2003 Hanley et al 2015) However there is evidence that even at 100 m grid length there are issues with the representation of convection that are probably related to partially resolving turbulence (Hanley et al 2015) Thus it appears that

A commonly noted problem in the simulation of warm season convection in the North American monsoon region has been the inability of atmospheric models at the meso-β scales (10 s to 100 s of kilometers) to simulate organized convection principally mesoscale convective systems With the use of convective parameterization high precipitation biases in model simulations are

In practice the precipitation flux and updraught terms are modified to take into account large‐scale condensation and thus produce more complete diagnostics However it is useful to understand how these properties of the scheme behave For this profile convection is active from around 120 hPa down to around 900 hPa or vertical levels 38–71

Turbulence convection and shallow clouds are parameterized using the unified EDMF parameterization scheme Shallow clouds are parameterized in EDMF by means of a bimodal probability density function in which the two normal modes represent the diffusive and convective contributions to cloud cover [Lewellen and Yoh 1993 Neggers 2009] The
