1. Introduction Deep convection plays a crucial role in moisture and heat transfer in the tropics ( Riehl and Malkus 1958 ), and is a key component in organized convective systems ( Houze 1977 , 2004 ; Houze et al. 2015 ; Zipser 1977 ). They are commonly found in various kinds of weather systems, such as squall lines, hurricanes, and monsoons ( Xu and Zipser 2012 ; Jiang et al. 2011 ; Smull and Houze 1985 ). To quantify the role of the deep convection in latent heat release, it is
