maxima and sometimes cloud formation at the intersection points. The measurements during IHOP_2002 have the capacity and resolution to help us further understand the dryline circulation and establish the role of the dryline in the initiation of convection. From the early stages of IHOP_2002 planning, the dryline was a likely target for the CI component. It was an appealing boundary to study because of its frequency in the region, slow propagation speed, and its perceived likelihood of initiating

-order accurate, and it should a priori be expected to be more accurate at fixed vertical resolution.They caution the reader, however, that it is difficult toseparate cause and effect in such comparisons, and underline the importance of continuing to improve numerical methods for climate models since they stillrepresent an important source of error. These authorshave indicated a preference for semi-Lagrangian advection of moisture to spectral advection for climatemodeling, and plan to use it in the next
