A technique, "saturation-point analysis', has been used to study convective-scale down-drafts driven by the evaporation of rain in the monsoon trough region during the passage of a disturbance. The aerological soundings collected during the passage of a depression within a monsoon trough were used for this study. The results showed a characteristic mixing line in the lower troposphere ahead of the depression while a distinct evaporation line structure was observed during passage of the depression.
