1. Introduction Diabatic heating is the ultimate energy source for driving the atmospheric circulation. In the tropics, latent heat release associated with deep convection is the dominant component of total diabatic heating. The heating induced large-scale circulation can further influence convection by modifying atmospheric instability through redistributing the localized latent heat and moisture or through dynamical lifting by low-level convergence. Because of this interactive process between

contribution of the diabatic process to the intensification of a blocking event in the SH. One such study, however, by Sáez de Adana and Colucci (2005) examines more than 10 cases of blocking in the Southern Hemisphere, and their results imply an indirect role for upstream convection in the formation of blocking events using the vorticity and divergence equations. This supports the results of Renwick and Revell (1999) , who also infer a role for diabatic heating through upstream convection as well. In

). This diabatic heating sits at the nexus of mesoscale and intraseasonal-scale interactions in the tropics. The diabatic heating arising from cloud processes may be broadly categorized as convective or stratiform in origin, each of which have fundamentally different characteristic vertical latent heating profiles ( Ahmed et al. 2016 ). Deep convective precipitation is associated with heating throughout the troposphere, while deep stratiform precipitation from thunderstorm anvils is characterized by

analyses, which suggests that diabatic heating is regularly involved in wave breaking. We note that the warm conveyor belts considered by Madonna et al. (2014) include only events with intense ascending from the lowermost troposphere; it is possible that moderate diabatic heating and ascending motion contribute to wave breaking regularly. A key step toward better understanding and predicting breaking waves during the warm season is to characterize their life cycle in a realistic environment. In this

(2001) , Hopsch et al. (2007) , Ross and Krishnamurti (2007) , Chen et al. (2008) , and others have documented two tracks for AEW disturbances, both of which may be involved in tropical cyclone formation. Ross et al. (2009) used analyzed fields to show that AEWs exhibiting both positive barotropic energy conversion and strong diabatic heating in organized convection were the waves that developed during the NAMMA field experiment. Cornforth et al. (2009) used an idealized model to study the
