computes planetary boundary layer height diagnostically using equilibrium turbulent kinetic energy ( Schmid and Niyogi 2012 ), we preferred to use the criterion of Barr and Betts (1997) , which is based on a straightforward thermodynamic interpretation of the CBL. Specifically, the CBL top (or Z i ) was determined manually as the lowest level within a layer lying atop a well-mixed layer in which became markedly more positive (below Z i , the area-averaged profile was often close to moist
