Here, we discuss the implementation of the stochastic multicloud model (SMCM) presented in the previous chapter in comprehensive climate models. First, we look at the case of an aquaplanet setting using the HOMME atmosphere only, dynamical core used in Chapter 9 and then consider, in Chapter 12, the case of a more involved state-of-the-art ocean-atmosphere coupled model, used in actual-operational climate predictions, namely, the National Centers for Environmental Predictions (NCEP)’s Climate Forecasting System (CFS). As portrayed by the results presented below important improvements in terms of the simulation of the MJO and convective coupled waves as well as the monsoon variability are achieved through the addition of stochasticity to the HOMME-MCM aquaplanet simulations presented in Chapter 9. Moreover, the implementation of the SMCM in CFS resulted in unprecedented improvements in terms of the simulation of the tropical modes of atmospheric variability on synoptic and intra-seasonal scales in coarse resolution GCMs.
