Summary
Abstract: The Advanced Microwave Precipitation Radiometer (AMPR) was deployed
during the Fourth Convection and Moisture Experiment (CAMEX-4). AMPR
data were collected at four microwave frequencies (10.7, 19.35, 37.1
and 85.5 GHz) for the period of 8 Aug 2001 through 26 Sept 2001. The
CAMEX-4 mission was to study hurricanes over land and ocean in the
U.S., Gulf of Mexico, Carribean, and Western Atlantic Ocean in
coordination with multiple aircraft and research-quality radar,
lightning, and radiosonde sites.
