interesting to compare these budgets to those of easterly waves both in the Pacific and over Africa. Furthermore, incorporating these equations into a linear theoretical framework for monsoon depressions may also shed light on our understanding of these systems. Such a framework is presented in a companion paper ( Adames and Ming 2018 ).

increases of precipitation with increases in atmospheric moisture content ( Bretherton et al. 2004a ). A series of works ( Peters and Neelin 2006 ; Neelin et al. 2008 ; Peters et al. 2009 ; Neelin et al. 2009 ) have explored and documented the finescale (near-instantaneous ≤0.25° grids) precipitation–moisture relationship, along with related statistics that arise when examining the probability distributions of precipitating and nonprecipitating points, precipitation accumulation, and cluster sizes

robustness and resolution dependence of the basic convective transition statistics for model comparison, the ability to summarize statistics in terms of CWV relative to critical enables additional diagnostics. The dependence of precipitation probability on this quantity expands the set of related properties that exhibit common behavior for precipitation throughout the tropics.
