Abstract

A convection scheme which addresses low entrainment rate problems for pursuing realistic intra-seasonal wave modes was discussed. The approach taken in this study considers the successive entrainment of a number of convective plumes. It is suggested that in the absence of any organization the resulting convection is unlikely to be significant given the low likelihood of several generations randomly occurring in the same place. However, in the presence of pre-existing convective organization the chance of continued deep convection is much higher, as plumes have a tendency to be initiated in the same location.
