) < 1; in the Kansas-experiment surface-layer data of Businger et al. (1971) , data fit the MO similarity curves out to − z / L ∼ 1.5, with a few points to 2.2. According to Wyngaard (1983) and Brutsaert (1998) , the surface layer extends to ∼10% of the PBL depth. However, the definition can be more conservative than this: Mahrt (2000) uses 5% of the convective boundary layer depth as the upper limit for the surface-layer top, and the American Meteorological Society (AMS) Glossary of

event description Four CI events compose our dataset from which the accuracy assessments are determined (see Table 2 ). Three of these events compose the training dataset. These were within a humid subtropical environment over north Alabama and south-central Tennessee. One other event used to evaluate the analysis is for a drier convective environment over Kansas. It is understood that the IR interest fields used within the MB06 algorithm will vary somewhat across convective environments (i
