1. Introduction Monsoons are fundamentally driven by land–sea heating asymmetries. While the North American Monsoon Experiment (NAME) was well instrumented on land, for logistical reasons observations of the coincident conditions at sea were far fewer. One of the participating research vessels was the Mexican Navy’s R/V Altair , which positioned itself close to the mouth of the gulf intermediate between Mazatlan and La Paz from 7 July until 12 August. 1 The shipboard measurements contributed

domain covering 15°–40°N, 90°–120°W for the period 1 July–15 August. For the period with intensive observations from 7 July to 15 August, gridded analyses were computed at 0000, 0600, 1200, and 1800 UTC over the T1A domain shown in Fig. 1 . To aid in the T1A analysis at 0600 and 1800 UTC on non-IOP days, time-interpolated sondes and profiler data from the ISS sites were used. On IOP days, gridded analyses were produced at 0000, 0400, 0800, 1200, 1600, and 2000 UTC over a domain slightly larger than
