Abstract

The saturation point concept and mixing line approach have been used in this study. During break conditions of monsoon the mixing line was cooler than the atmospheric stratification and suggested that mixing of cloud base air and inversion top air would produce downdrafts to the base of inversion. During the active conditions of monsoon the mixing line was warmer than the environmental stratification, indicating that the mixing of environmental air and cloud base air may produce warmer updrafts.
