Abstract : This one year grant provided the funding for the third year of a three year proposal. In the first two years, funded by NSF, the researchers helped design the aircraft measurement program of TOGA COARE and used aircraft in the field to obtain a data set on the entire spectrum of clouds and weather regimes over the warm pool. The third year funding was used to analyze the whole spectrum of convection over the warm pool, using the data obtained, along with satellite data, ship and buoy observations, large scale wind fields, and sounding data.
