Despite the fact that TOP RESEARCH CAMPAIGNmarine stratocumulus is a relatively simple Physics of Stratocumulus Top (POST) was a system: almost plain-paral el, warm cloud research campaign held in the vicinity of occupying the upper part of the well mixed Monterey Bay in July and August 2008. High- boundary layer above a homogeneous flat resolution in-situ measurements with surface, understanding entrainment into the CIRPAS Twin Otter research aircraft were stratocumulus topped boundary layer (STBL) focused on a detailed study of processes is limited. Consequently, estimates of the occurring at the interface between the STBL entrainment velocity are ambiguous (e.g. and the free troposphere. The aircraft was Stevens (2002), Gerber et al.

in-situ measurements (e.g. Caughley et al. (1982), Nichol s (1989), Lenshow et. al. (2000), Rode and Wang (2007)) and results of numerical simulations (e.g. Moeng (2005), Yamaguchi and Randall (2008)) clearly indicate that top of the stratocumulus is located below the capping inversion and does not touch the free troposphere. In between there is so-called entrainment interface layer, EIL, of thickness varying from few meters to few tens of meters Gerber et al., (2002), Haman et al. (2007), Kurowski, (2009). Data from the majority of field campaigns and numerical simulations are of too poor resolution to infer about details of this layer. In this note we present two cases of very di e ff rent structures of stratocumulus top, capping inversion and EIL, documented Figure 1.

In this study we Flight TO10 was performed on 2008/08/04, focus on a fine-scale measurements 17:15-22:15 UTC.

Such temperature drop, wind shear and turbulence are common features for al porpoises in this flight, suggesting existence of a characteristic Turbulent Inversion Sub-Layer (TISL) above the cloud top.

velocity fluctuations in typical penetration of the cloud top are presented. In contrast to TO10 case (c.f. Fig.4), T, r and velocity fluctuations are present in FT above EIL. Line discriminating between FT and TISL is set at 14746s (altitude of 599m), marking beginning of the sharp inversion associated with a wind shear (v velocity component only). Patterns of T and v before the marker suggest wavy engulfment of FT air into TISL.

While clear air filaments approaches the saturation the total jump of θ l between the middle of the mixed layer and the 1 ∼ 000m altitude is A marker discriminating between CTMSL and comparable to TO10 case ( 1 ∼ 0K), a sharp CTL is set in a point in which LWC jump inversion above the cloud top has a correlates with drop of T and r.

Sharp ramps in pattern typical to that in the mixed layer: a temperature record suggest very narrow linear increase of maximum LWC with the interfaces between the filaments of various altitude. temperatures. Such ramps, common within It is worth of mentioning, that structure of both: cloudy and clear air filaments were not stratocumulus top in TO13 is not unique.

Panels 1 and 3 show 2s (110m long) segments, in the middle panel1s (33m long) segment is presented. ff rences in thermodynamical and dynamical properties of the cloud tops between TO10 and TO13 cases were reflected in visual appearance of where g is gravity acceleration, ∆ϑl, ∆u and stratocumulus top.

Vertical gradients are a e ff cted by the way data were collected. Almost horizontal flight path (typical inclination 2 degrees) and inevitable horizontal variability of temperature and wind are cause of this problem. In particular, CTMSL as seen in Figs. 3 and 6, may not appear on vertical profiles from. e.g. dropsondes. Thickness of this sublayer is just a "first guess" estimate of the amplitude of cloud top fluctuations on a horizontal distance of few km.

Keeping above in mind, a simplified dynamical picture of cloud top region in both, Nature of these di e ff rences requires such di e ff rent cases, is surprisingly similar. additional analysis. Consider crude estimates Free troposphere is dynamical y stable of turbulence parameters in consecutive (Ri≈4), with the minimum values of RMSV in layers and sublayers of the cloud top region al the investigated layers. TISL, CTMSL and (Table 1), based on few penetrations in each the whole EIL are characterized by values of Ri close to the critical (which, according to di e ff rent sources varies in a range 0.2–1.0). Minimum value of Ri seems to be characteristics of TISL. Al the penetrations seen by the authors so far confirm that TISL is turbulent, despite the maximum static stability across this layer. SiA border between non-turbulent FT and turbulent TISL is Table 1. Typical properties of turbulence in always sharp, no gradual increase of velocity consecutive layers of the cloud top in TO10 and fluctuations is observed. CTL begins at the level where horizontal velocity gradient Rows: FT-free troposphere, TISL- turbulent vanishes. Similar properties of EIL, col ected inversion sublayer, CTMSL- cloud top mixing from helicopter-borne instrumented platform sublayer, CTL- cloud top layer, EIL: entrainment interfacial layer.

Columns: RMSV- root mean square velocity in m/s, Ri- bulk Richardson number, LC – Corrsin Estimates of Ri and RMSV across whole EIL scale, LO – Ozmidov scale. are more reliable than across the sublayers. Root mean square velocity (RMSV) Despite the uncertainties, turbulent fluctuations were calculated using low-pass properties of EIL as diagnosed from Ri are filtered velocity (10Hz cutoff frequency) in similar in both cases. This can be explained order to damp the instrumental noise. Bulk analyzing the length scales associated with Richardson number was estimated from 1 Hz the turbulence. The first one, Corrsin scale, is ∼ 0m thick layer of FT, and the a scale above which eddies are deformed by whole depths of TISL, CTMSL and EIL using the shear and can be expressed as: the fol owing formula: In the above S is velocity shear across the fraction χ<0.11 are saturated after EIL and ε is the turbulent kinetic energy completion of mixing.
