Summary
Abstract: The CAMEX-3 DC-8 Data Aquisition and Distribution System and
Navigation data files contain information recorded by on board
navigation and data collection systems. In addition to typical
navigation data (e.g. date, time, lat/lon and altitude) it contains
outside meteorological parameters such as wind speed and direction,
temperature, cabin altitude, vertical speed, saturation vapor pressure
of water and other parameters. These ascii text files are recorded
every second for the length of the sortie. In addition, graphical
representations of these measured parameters are shown in .gif files.
