Abstract

Multiple datasets observed on 14 June 2002 illustrate the development of the moisture field during the evolution of the CBL. The CBL grows up from the surface several hours after sunrise and penetrates into and dominates the wave motions within the previous evenings' stable layer. The CBL continues its growth into the previous days' residual layer and becomes the dominant surface-based layer by 1815 UTC. Ongoing work includes i) extending these analyses using the other observations noted in Section 2 and ii) comparing and contrasting these observations with two other IHOP boundary layer evolution study days: 21 June and 25 June 2002.
