Spatial scales of tropical rainfall in a changing climate

Editor’s Highlight—

 

This paper offers insights on spatial scales of rainfall and their mechanisms in a changing climate. The authors present results for changes in extreme precipitation in a superparameterized General Circulation Model (GCM) and how the changes differ between the GCM gridboxes and the Cloud-Resolving Model gridboxes. They also investigate the causes of the different changes. The framework for comparing multi-scale thermodynamical and dynamical factors is an interesting contribution. This work should be interest to the climate community and suggests directions for some potential future work.
