Evaluating Southern Ocean cloud biases in ACCESS1.3 using hybrid cloud regimes

Introduction

  • Cloud biases in representing current climate, and effects for predicting cloud feedback in warming climate.

  • Use of cloud regimes to aid model evaluation (identifying compensating biases)

  • Use of ISCCP-style cloud regimes to for observational studies and model evaluation.

  • Issues relating to identifying ISCCP-style cloud regimes from models:

    • Identifying inconsistent cloud re
