Abstract

As Hurricane Frances made landfall on the eastern coast of Florida on 5 September 2004, Texas Tech University’s Hurricane Research Team deployed two mobile Doppler radars (the SMART-Rs) in the Cape Canaveral area. The dual-Doppler data collected during the deployment included a convective outer rainband that contained two cells with cyclonically rotating shear features. The data were synthesized with the purpose of documenting both the kinematic structure of the cells and the evolution of the cells as they crossed the coastline.
