-scale turbulence. The convective transition statistics thus have potential to contribute constraints for reworking some of the basic assumptions about entrainment as currently implemented in cumulus parameterization schemes. The convective transition statistics over the tropical oceans have received much attention in the preceding decade, with only a few recent investigations of these statistics over tropical land. Ahmed and Schumacher (2017) , using satellite and reanalysis data, showed that for land regions

values from spatial interpolation (e.g., around the Andes and New Guinea), data in the 2.5° neighborhood of land pixels are excluded for some of the presented statistics. Note that the CWV datasets often do not record a CWV value in the presence of precipitation, and thus gap filling is required to reconstruct missing data (see section S1 in the supplementary material). For algorithm choices used for the TMIv7.1 data, the probability of missing CWV depends primarily on P , with the probability

several studies have analyzed the thermodynamic budget of SMDs ( Saha and Saha 1988 ; Sørland and Sorteberg 2015 ), no study has looked at this budget in the context of moist processes, nor has any study looked at both the moisture and thermodynamic budgets within the context of moist static energy (MSE). The goal of this study is to analyze the moisture and MSE budgets of SMDs. To carry out this analysis, we will make use of daily fields from GFDL’s atmospheric general circulation model (AGCM). We
