Abstract
Over the last few years a new type of global climate model (GCM) has emerged in which
a cloud-resolving model (CRM) is embedded into each grid cell of a GCM. This new
approach is frequently called a Multiscale Modeling Framework (MMF) or super-
parameterization. In this article we present a comparison of MMF output with radar
observations from the NASA CloudSat mission, which uses a near nadir-pointing
