Okay this is tangential to the topic but VERY INTERESTING in its own 
right.  How well do the observed growth rates

for (presumably large scale because small length scale damps) compare 
with the theoretical Eady growth rates

and (something I should know but don't) do Eady growth rates incorporate 
the effect of moisture on stratification?
