The article reports on transferability intercomparison, an opportunity for new idea on global water cycle and energy budget. It is emphasized that water and associated energy cycles introduce nonlinear and exponential processes that create difficulties for observing and predicting climate changes. Transferability intercomparisons represent a new method in understanding water cycle and energy budget on regional to global scales. It is noted that water cycle processes also occur on a wide range of spatial and temporal scales, many being too minute to be globally observed by global climate and weather forecast models.
