Abstract

The altitudes of the average initial precipitation echoes in convective clouds in Arizona for particular days have been compared with the altitudes of the calculated cloud base. They are found to be positively correlated. The implication of this result is that the dominant precipitation initiation mechanism in convective clouds in southern Arizona is the coalescence process.
