Synopsis of FCMP Deployment

The shortest deployment in FCMP history occurred during Gabrielle, which made landfall in Venice, Florida around 1200 UTC on September 14, 2001. The cyclone moved in a small counterclockwise loop over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico for two and a half days before reaching tropical storm strength on the 13th. At that time, Gabrielle was located 325 km southwest of the landfall site. One UF team with tower T1 in tow left Gainesville around 2200 UTC on the 12th to intercept the storm and arrived in Venice Beach immediately prior to landfall. Data collection continued into the early afternoon, and the team returned to the University of Florida by late evening.
