Seasonal Variation of Shallow-to-Deep Convection Transition and Its Link to the Environmental Conditions over the Central Amazon
Editors’ Highlight—This study examines the role of the diurnal cycle in the transition from shallow to deep convection over the Amazon Basin. The authors found shallow clouds to be more prevalent during the wet season, whereas deep convection was most intense during the transition season. They also found that controlling environmental factors such as Convective Available Potential Energy, convective inhibition, vertical wind shear, and the moist layer very seasonally. This study exemplifies how observations and numerical simulations in combination can provide more insights to physical processes than each alone can.
