Using NUCAPS lapse rates to evaluate atmospheric stability

NUCAPS profiles derived from CrIS and ATMS data on NOAA-20 provide model-independent estimates of atmospheric thermodynamics globally, including, for this case over the central Pacific Ocean, in regions otherwise bereft of data.  NUCAPS lapse rates show a minimum in stability in low-levels in between two cloud features; the region includes...
