Full access

A detailed and unique multisensor observation of an undular bore is presented. The data include those from rawinsonde, satellite, two Doppler radars, and a tall instrumented tower. Noteworthy are Doppler radar images that resolve the wave's characteristics and capture a good part of its spatial extent. The basic parameters of the wave train are established from the observations.
