Short summary
While the negative nonlinear feedback associated with two new modes in the 5DLM can stabilize solutions, additional resolved heating processes by a third mode in the 6DLM can destabilize solutions. The findings support the view of Lorenz (1972) on the role of small-scale processes: if the flap of a butterfly’s wings can be instrumental in generating a tornado, it can equally well be instrumental in preventing a tornado.
While the negative nonlinear feedback associated with two new modes in the 5DLM can stabilize...
