Abstract: Abstract Convective cold pools over oceans contribute to the air‐sea exchange of heat and moisture. Beyond cold pools' physical properties, cold pools and their intersections are important mechanisms controlling the life cycle of tropical convective systems. However, few observational techniques are available to routinely observe the properties of cold pools and their association with convection. The primary goal of this study is to demonstrate a new technique using gradients in remotely sensed ocean vector w…
