intromission zone

The outside part of convective thermals that experience mixing with the ambient environment.

These thermals are somewhat cylindrically shaped in the convective boundary layer rather than bubble-shaped as was proposed by some classical theories. The inside of a thermal is called a protected core and is usually not contaminated with entrained environmental air.
