a (Left) Scatter plot of smoothed \(\left\langle {\sigma^{2} } \right\rangle^{3/2}\) versus \(\varepsilon_{U}\) for all 2016 and 2017 UAV flights except FLT16-21. \(\sigma^{2}\) was calculated as shown in Fig. 2. (Right). The corresponding histogram of the apparent buoyancy scale \(\tilde{L}_{B}\) for \(\left\langle {\sigma^{2} } \right\rangle^{3/2} > 0.01\). b Same as a after removal of turbulent regions associated with convective boundary layers, clouds and MCT layers
