( Fig. 7b ). Structural differences in the simulated CFADs between land and ocean are less coherent in the vertical direction, unlike those from the TRMM PR, which show clear, coherent patterns through solid, mixed, and liquid-phase precipitation. The results are also interesting because the MMF modeling setup does not account for the thermal patch effect. Robinson et al. (2011) concluded that mesoscale wave dynamics due to the thermal patch effect is the primary mechanism for continental

oceanic regions, and it often takes a few days for them to make landfall. Because of a lack of rain gauge and ground-radar over the ocean, an important alternative for retrieving precipitation from such systems is satellite, enabling observations of ARs throughout their entire life cycle (e.g., Matrosov 2012 , 2013 ) and before they make landfall. Compared to many regions of the world, the western Unites States is fairly well instrumented and thus provides an opportunity to assess the weaknesses and
