Abstract: [1] Single column models (SCMs) are useful tools for the evaluation of parameterisations of radiative and moist processes used in general circulation models (GCMs). Most SCM studies to date have concentrated on regions where there is a sufficiently dense observational network to derive the required forcing data. This paper describes an ensemble single column modeling (ESCM) approach where the forcing data are derived from numerical weather prediction (NWP) analysis products. To highlight the benefits of the E…
