fluxes increase over warmer waters ( Bretherton and Wyant 1997 ; Wyant et al. 1997 ). As several studies have shown ( Martin et al. 1995 ; Zhou et al. 2015 ), stratocumulus cloud breakup is not an immediate response to MBL decoupling but can be delayed by as much as 1–3 days with cloud cover often remaining above 50% until 500–2000 km downstream of decoupling onset ( Zhou et al. 2015 ). Given the importance of the SCT, it is remarkable that few dedicated aircraft observations have sampled the MBL
