The effects of convection on the summertime mid-latitude overworld Institutional Repository Document uri icon


  • Abstract. Halogen Occultation Experiment measurements of H2O are used to investigate the influence of mid-latitude convection on the summertime overworld between 30 N and 40 N. We find that most of the convective influence over this latitude range occurs over the Asian monsoon and over North America. Over North America, the effects of convection extend to ~410 K (17.5 km). Over Asia, the effects of convection extend to ~460 K (19 km), about 50 K (1.5 km) higher than over North America.
