Abstract

A 915 MHz boundary layer radar (BLR) is currently being used with frequency domain interferometry (FDI) and a Radio Acoustic Sounding System (RASS) to study the nocturnal jet. Nocturnal jets are a low-level wind maximum that are common in the Great Plains region of the United States. The jet can generate severe turbulence and wind shear which can be hazardous to unsuspecting aircraft. Although FDI measurements of the nocturnal jet have not yet been attempted, the BLR has been used to observe the jet on numerous occasions.
