Abstract: An idealised model of moist convection is described wherein small "cloud parcels" are used to represent convective processes, including the fully three-dimensional vorticity dynamics. The model compares well with the UK Meteorological Office - Natural Environment Research Council model (MONC), and offers substantially enhanced resolution without adverse numerical diffusion effects.
