The three-dimensional structure of shallow orographic convection is investigated through simulations performed with a cloud-resolving numerical model. In moist flows that surmount a given topographic barrier to form statically unstable cap clouds, the organization of the convection depends on both the atmospheric structure and the mechanism by which the convection is initiated. Convection initiated by thermal perturbations over a smooth mountain (without any small-scale topographic features) isdoi:10.1175/jas3568.1 fatcat:q4mt4gzzzjc5znbj3bmi4kbfze
