This article gives a short summary of the physical processes relevant to cirrus and their representation in cloud-resolving models and in global general circulation models. Cloud-resolving models are used to study the evolution of single clouds or cloud systems. With global models the role of clouds in the atmosphere and their interaction with large scale dynamics can be studied. Applications of such models to study cirrus processes and the global contrail cirrus climate impact are discussed. Future research towards a prognostic cloud scheme to include nonequilibrium cirrus cloud physics is laid out.
