provides a schematic summary of the GEWEX time line. Given this background and the subsequent development of its research program, the GEWEX mission could be defined functionally as the development and application of planetary Earth science, observations and models to climate and hydrology. In fulfilling this mission, GEWEX addresses its central science objectives dealing with global energy and water budgets and has developed more than 40 coordinated projects and activities that exploit global datasets

version of the bulk microphysics scheme of Cho et al. (1989) and the simplified Arakawa–Schubert scheme ( Pan and Wu 1995 ; Hong and Pan 1998 ) are used to compute grid-scale precipitation and convection, respectively. The effects of vertical turbulent mixing are computed using the bulk aerodynamic scheme of Deardorff (1978) at the surface and K theory within the model atmosphere. The eddy diffusivities for the K-theory method are computed using a scheme that combines the nonlocal PBL scheme of
