Dataset associated with "Multiple‐Instance Superparameterization, Part 1: Concept, and Predictability of Precipitation"
We have investigated the predictability of precipitation using a new configuration of the superparameterized Community Atmosphere Model, SP-CAM. The new configuration, called the multiple-instance superparameterized-CAM, or MP-CAM, uses the average of 10 independent two-dimensional cloud-permitting models (CPMs) in each grid column of the global model, instead of the conventional single CPM. The 10 CPMs start from slightly different initial conditions, and simulate alternative realizations of the convective cloud system. By analyzing the ensemble of possible realizations, we can study the ...
