  abstract = {{In most atmospheric circulation models used for climate projections,
cloud and convective processes are not explicitly resolved but
parameterized. Such models are known to produce a diurnal cycle of
continental thunderstorms in phase with insolation, while observed
precipitation peaks in late afternoon. We propose a new approach which
corrects this long standing bias of parameterized convection. In this
approach, deep convection triggering and intensity are controlled by
sub-cloud processes: here boundary layer thermals and gust fronts, and
potentially orography or surface heterogeneities. The representation of
the diurnal cycle of deep convection is greatly improved in 1D mode,
with rainfall maximum delayed from midday to late afternoon, provided
parameterizations account for the key role played by shallow cumulus in
preconditioning deep convection and by gust fronts in the
self-sustaining of thunderstorms in the afternoon.

  abstract = {{Thermal radiation within Venus atmosphere is analyzed in close details.
Prominent features are identified, which are then used to design a
parameterization (a highly simplified and yet accurate enough model) to
be used in General Circulation Models. The analysis is based on a net
exchange formulation, using a set of gaseous and cloud optical data
chosen among available referenced data. The accuracy of the proposed
parameterization methodology is controlled against Monte Carlo
simulations, assuming that the optical data are exact. Then, the
accuracy level corresponding to our present optical data choice is
discussed by comparison with available observations, concentrating on
the most unknown aspects of Venus thermal radiation, namely the deep
atmosphere opacity and the cloud composition and structure.
