The initiation of atmospheric convection is investigated using the synergy of different
instruments. The impact of increased spatial data resolution on the detection of the initiation
of deep convection is analyzed, and a methodology is developed and applied to
determine the likelihood of deep convection over flat and complex terrains. With this purpose,
Intensive Observation Periods (IOPs) are used from the Convective Storm Initiation
Project (CSIP), which took place in southern United Kingdom (UK), and from the Convective
and Orographically-Induced Precipitation Study (COPS), which was performed in
southwestern Germany and eastern France.
