appear to have diurnal signals correlated with land-based convection, coupled through gravity wave currents and/or land–sea breeze interactions. Mapes et al. (2003) used a simple numerical model to show how diurnal heating over elevated terrain in the Panama Bight region could excite gravity waves and lead to the subsequent onset of precipitation over the adjacent ocean region. These previous works lead us to the hypothesis that the proximity to land of an ocean location is an important driver in
