Del Genio, A.D., 1993: Convective and large-scale cloud processes in GCMS. In Energy and Water Cycles in the Climate System. E. Raschke and D. Jacob, Eds., NATO ASI Series I: Global Environmental Change, vol. 5, Springer, pp. 95-121, doi:10.1007/978-3-642-76957-3_4.

The wide range of global climate model (GCM) estimates of climate sensitivity to increasing trace gas concentrations is a result of differing treatments of poorly understood feedback processes associated with the hydrologic cycle. Within the atmosphere, these feedbacks reflect the effects of phase changes of water on radiative fluxes. For this reason, one of the highest priorities of the World Climate Research Programme is an understanding of the impact on climate of changes in cloud properties. Complementing this is the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX), whose prime objective is a description and understanding of the transport of water and energy within the atmosphere and across the atmosphere-surface interface (WCRP, 1990). Both of these goals in turn require a research emphasis on the representation of cloud radiative, dynamic, and microphysical processes in climate models.
