-surface winds ( Horgan et al. 2007 ). Whether a cold pool can form likely depends on both the depth and stability of the air that downdrafts must penetrate, as well as microphysical processes and environmental humidity, which together influence the diabatic cooling that contributes to the downdrafts ( Blanchard 1990 ; Horgan et al. 2007 ). When a gravity current (e.g., a cold-pool outflow) encounters a strong low-level inversion either large-amplitude bores or gravity waves can be generated, which
