In this work CLEX researchers aim to understand a few popular ways to parameterize convection. They extracted one vertical column from five different GCMs and lightly tickled (perturbed) it and then observed the responses.

By comparing two models, CLEX researchers found that the current generation of convection parameterisations fail to replicate the random, chaotic nature of real-life turbulent convection.
World-first modelling research– which used several million CPU hours in Australia’s fastest supercomputer, Raijin, and ran calculations non-stop for over a year – has revealed the Southern Ocean mixes water between the depths and surface far more easily than previously thought.
