-level jet. This interaction resulted in the generation of a bore by 0300 UTC, and soon thereafter, a solitary wave train became apparent ( Fig. 3 ), because no discernible temperature contrast could be found across the boundary. The S-Pol detected five to seven waves with an average horizontal wavelength of 10.5 km as the soliton approached the Homestead vicinity ( Fig. 4 ). The vertical structure of the soliton seen in RHI displays of reflectivity and radial velocity ( Fig. 5 ) is indicative of trapped

validation of satellite measurements, the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDACC, formerly known as NDSC) has recently considered including the water vapor measurements using Raman lidar in its suite of long-term measurements. A high-capability water vapor Raman lidar was therefore built at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Table Mountain Facility (TMF) in California (34.4°N, 117.5°W, elevation 2285 m), with the overall objective of measuring water vapor to the upper
