During the International H2O Project (IHOP) in the Southern U.S. Central Plains in May and June 2002, aircraft missions on June 3 and June 9 2002 made detailed lidar and dropsonde observations of intense phases of the low-level jet (LLJ) . Combined with standard and enhanced operational observations (primarily radiosondes and profilers) and other ground-based research observations, data from these missions represent an unprecedented opportunity to describe moisture transport in the LLJ at scales ranging from the synoptic scales resolved by the radiosonde network to sub-mesoscale features in the moisture and wind fields observed by airborne lidar instruments.
