kinematic and microphysical differences of east and west convection (e.g., Cifelli et al. 2002 ; Williams and Rutledge 2003, manuscript submitted to Mon. Wea. Rev. ); however, these studies were limited in scope (contrasting one event in the ER with one event in the WR) and did not address the issue of whether systematic differences were found across the entire dataset sampled during TRMM-LBA. The goal of this study is to examine the spectrum of convection sampled in this region during TRMM-LBA and

; Bluestein and Thomas 1984 ), and the mesoscale enhancement of precipitation (e.g., Cahir 1971 ; Uccellini and Kocin 1987 ; Hakim and Uccellini 1992 ) have been conducted for a number of decades. Conceptual models depicting jet-streak kinematic signatures in various flow configurations also have a long record in the literature (e.g., Namias and Clapp 1949 ; Bjerknes 1951 ; Beebe and Bates 1955 ; Shapiro 1982 ). In addition to receiving scrutiny from the preceding significant-weather and kinematic
