Slope flow experimental parameters. Time corresponds to beginning of image and temperature acquisition; for experiments C1 and C2 heat is provided along the slope from  s; for experiment C3 the UHI heat flux begins at time  s and heat is provided along the slope from  s; in experiments C2 and C3 the bottom is heated from  s from the beginning of the experiments to start and sustain convection. was the vertical component of the temperature gradient; was the surplus of surface heat flux due to the UHI; was slope heat flux. The duration of the experiments is roughly 600 s.
