-modulated convective asymmetry (TCA). TCAs, as diagnosed by cloud-top temperatures colder than −70°C, are cloud structures that are responsible for approximately 10 000–15 000-km 2 changes in cloud cover, that expand upshear, and, most importantly for the purposes of this study, that appear with periods between 4 and 8 h. A series of numerical simulations in this second part are analyzed to quantify further the dynamics and characteristics, including the vertical structure, of this class of TCs that undergo RI in

marine layer in order to test instrument response in strong gradients. Twin Otter flights were conducted on 24 and 25 June 2011, when only minimal low-level cloud cover was present at the top of the marine layer near the buoy locations; GOES-West visible satellite cloud images for overflight times on these 2 days adjacent to Monterey Bay and San Francisco Bay are shown in Figs. 2a,b . Both show nearby layers of low stratocumulus clouds. Fig . 2. (a) Visible satellite image over Monterey Bay showing
