1. Introduction A physically reasonable treatment of low clouds within climate models is required for the realistic modeling of the climate’s sensitivity to greenhouse gas forcing (e.g., Wetherald and Manabe 1988 ; Tiedtke 1993 ; Stephens 2005 ). Furthermore, low clouds account for a great deal of intermodel variability in cloud feedback factors ( Bony and Dufresne 2005 ; Zhang et al. 2013 ). One persistent difficulty with modeling marine boundary layer (MBL) clouds is accurately capturing
