Short summary
We analyse and evaluate tropical rainfall variability in the MetUM-GA6 configuration at four different horizontal resolutions, plus one in which the convection parameterization has been switched off. Tropical deep convective rainfall in this model tends to be intermittent in space and time. This behaviour is largely independent of model resolution. Switching off the deep convection parameterization (at ~10 km resolution) results in isolated, but persistent, rainfall on the gridscale.
