MU radar echo intensity as a function of altitude (in km ASL) and local time (in hours) on June 2, 2015, from around 12:00 to 18:00 LT during the ShUREX 2015 campaign. The image was processed using the Capon method, with the radar operated in the range-imaging mode on the vertical beam. The scale on the right-hand side is in decibel. The striking feature of this radar image is the appearance of S&L fine structures which appeared around 09:00, persisting for more than 8 h till around 17:00 LT. In the lower part, the top of the convective boundary layer, with associated plume activity, can be seen at a height of around 2 km
