Summary

The paper discusses properties of the hydrothermodynamic frameworks thus far employed, the approximations regarding the microphysics of precipitation, the quality of results of numerical integrations for different models, further work in the construction of more sophisticated dynamical models, and investigations of the relation of large-scale liquid water content and of water vapor, and the implications for the dynamical prediction of cloud formation and dissipation.
