a Vertical profiles of vertical shears of horizontal wind (solid, wind shear; dashed, speed shear) at a vertical resolution of 150 m from MU radar data (05:40–06:40 LT) (black) and B1 data (red). b Same as (a) at a vertical resolution of 20 m from B1 data. c Ri profiles estimated at a vertical resolution of 150 m from B1 data (red) and from MU radar data and N2 estimated from UAV4A data (black solid) and UAV4D data (black dashed). d Ri profile estimated from B1 data at the vertical resolution of 20 m. The horizontal thick dashed lines delineate the KH region (2). The vertical thin dashed lines show the critical value of Ri (= 0.25)
