Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences November , Vol. This afternoon invigoration of clouds occurs on a large scale, as inferred from the morning to afternoon changes in the MODIS cloud scenes described above Figs. This evolution is consistent with previous studies Maloney and Hartmann ; Johnson et al. The 3-hourly Eulerian tendency is depicted red , and black is the same except smoothed using a h running mean.
