California Land-falling Jets Experiment (1998)
In 1998, with the intent to improve landfalling cyclone track and intensity forecasts, researchers utilized numerous forms of both in-situ ("on-site") as well as remotely sensing instrumentation (including a DOW truck) to observe the impacts of the prefrontal low-level jet (LLJ) on mountainous and coastal regions of California.

Please examine the images below information on where this project took place as well as where the DOWs were deployed during CALJET.
