Summary
Abstract: The Convection And Moisture EXperiment (CAMEX) is a series of field
research investigations sponsored by the Earth Science Enterprise of
the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The fourth
field campaign in the CAMEX series (CAMEX-4) ran from 16 August to 25
September, 2001 and was based out of Jacksonville Naval Air Station,
Florida. CAMEX-4 focused on the study of tropical cyclone (hurricane)
development, tracking, intensification, and landfalling impacts using
NASA-funded aircraft and surface remote sensing instrumentation.

The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) Mobile Integrated
Profiling System (MIPS) is a mobile atmospheric profiling system. It
includes a 915 MHz Doppler profiler, lidar ceilometer, 12 channel
microwave profiling radiometer, Doppler Sodar, Radio Acoustic Sounding
System (RASS), Field Mills, and surface observing station. This
dataset consists of cdf and mom files tarred together for a day. The
"cdf" file collects 15 minute average 3-D wind profiles from the
Doppler Sodar starting at the beginning of each day. The "mom" file
contains data from each beam about radial velocity and backscattter
intensisty. Each horizontal beam is approximately 7 seconds apart;
veritcal beams are approximately 21 seconds apart.
