the temperature and moisture structure of the environment ( Riehl and Malkus 1958 ; Yanai 1961 ; Yanai and Johnson 1993 ). Documenting the large-scale structure and latent heating profiles of tropical convective cloud systems from observations is a key step toward understanding how cumulus convection interacts with its large-scale environment. This has been one of the primary goals of a number of major field experiments conducted in the tropics ( Thompson et al. 1979 ; Frank 1978 ; Frank and
