increases the gravitational stability of the system, thereby dampening turbulence. For example, turbulence has been shown to decay by an order of magnitude when the near-surface stratifies, either through surface heating ( Brainerd and Gregg 1993 ; Caldwell et al. 1997 ) or precipitation ( Smyth et al. 1997 ). At the same time, increased stratification in the DWL is known to trap wind-driven momentum at the base of the surface mixed layer forming a diurnal jet ( Thorpe 1978 ; Price et al. 1986
