a Thermodynamic diagrams showing temperature (solid lines) and dew-point temperature (dashed lines) profiles for UAV4 (black), B1 (blue), and for a balloon (red) launched on 7 June 2015 09:00 LT from Shionomisaki station, about 160 km south of the MU radar site. The left (right) panel shows UAV4 ascent (descent) profile. The B1 profiles are the same for both panels. The solid (dashed) green isolines show potential temperature and moist saturated potential temperature, respectively. G1, G2, and G3 refer to moisture gradients discussed in the text. The two horizontal dashed lines delineate the KH region (2) between the altitudes of 1.80 and 2.15 km. b As Fig. 3a, but for B2 and UAV5
