Global Climate Models rely on parametrisation of convective cloud activity and as the effect of clouds is the single most uncertain contribution to current climate change predictions, there is an urgent need to improve models of convection. Contemporary models for convection parameterisation rely on a description of convective clouds developed from water-tank experiments, which may not be the most applicable study tool. By using high-resolution (10m) modelling of individual convective clouds these traditional models are being examined so that improvements may be made.
