Title: Final report, Department of Energy grant number DESC0006806

Prof. Mapes and Ph.D. student I-Kuan Hu worked with Community Atmosphere Model developers, seeking to reduce solution artifacts at the seams of variableresolution grids by introducing appropriate gridlength-dependence to subgrid schemes. We find that such artifacts are relatively subtle for affordable configurations (an 0.5° monsoon in a 2° global background simulation), compared to pervasive biases that remain as challenges in all grid configurations. Convective organization is considered as a possible process-level source of tropical biases.
