      Effect of environmental shear, sea-surface temperature, and ambient moisture on the formation and predictability of tropical cyclones: An ensemble-mean perspective

      Dandan Tao and Fuqing Zhang

      Accepted manuscript online: 22 APR 2014 03:57AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014MS000314

      Key Points

      • The larger the shear, the longer it takes the TCs to form and intensify
      • Shear affects development of TCs through modulating convective intensity
      • Higher SST and moisture allow TCs to form faster and resist stronger shear

      Some aspects of the problem of secondary eyewall formation in idealized three-dimensional nonlinear simulations

      K. Menelaou, M. K. Yau and Y. Martinez

      Accepted manuscript online: 22 APR 2014 03:40AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014MS000316

      Key Points

      • Sustained rainband alone can initiate a secondary eyewall
      • Vertical wind shear may disrupt the process of secondary eyewall formation
      • Boundary layer dynamics contribute rather than initiate a secondary eyewall

      Key Points

      • Simulated terrestrial water cycle is sensitive to runoff generation schemes
      • Hydrologic parameterizations have large impacts on the global C budgets
      • Improving hydrologic representations to constrain C cycle modeling is important

      Effects of Vertical Resolution and Non-Orographic Gravity Wave Drag On the Simulated Climate in the Community Atmosphere Model, Version 5

      Jadwiga H. Richter, Abraham Solomon and Julio T. Bacmeister

      Accepted manuscript online: 25 MAR 2014 09:24PM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2013MS000303

      Key Points

      • Vertical resolution has a significant impact on the mean simulated climate
      • Increased vertical resolution causes warming near the tropopause

      Parameterization and sensitivity analysis of a process-based Terrestrial Ecosystem Model using adjoint method

      Qing Zhu and Qianlai Zhuang

      Accepted manuscript online: 13 MAR 2014 05:52AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2013MS000241

      Key Points

      • Develop an adjoint version of process-based biogeochemical model (TEM)
      • Conduct sensitivity analysis to rank importance of model parameters
      • Constrain TEM by using in situ observational data

      Evaluation of boundary layer cloud parameterizations in the ECHAM5 general circulation model using CALIPSO and CloudSat satellite data

      Christine C.W. Nam, Johannes Quaas, Roel Neggers, Colombe Siegenthaler - Le Drian and Francesco Isotta

      Accepted manuscript online: 3 MAR 2014 04:14AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2013MS000277

      Key Points

      • All three schemes improved the (sub)tropical oceanic boundary layer clouds
      • Differences amongst schemes less than differences to satellite observations
      • Advective component of Dual Mass Flux improves representation of shallow cumulus

      Key Points

      • DSD broadening depends on the mixing time scale and the LWC after mixing
      • DSD broadening increases substantially as the evaporation time scale decreases
      • We related the fraction of droplets that totally evaporate to two DSD parameters
