used, but there is also another option to consider. Yanai et al. (1973) recognized that the column-integrated apparent heating over an area sufficient for a cloud ensemble minus the radiation effects is balanced by the net surface precipitation and the net surface heat fluxes as follows: where Q 1 is the apparent heat source, Q R is the radiative heating rate, P o is the surface precipitation rate, S o is the surface heat flux, g is gravity, and L is the latent heat of condensation
