CAMEX-4 Shared Mobile Atmospheric Research and Teaching (SMART) RadarsEntry ID: c4gsmart
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 Shared Mobile Atmospheric Research and Teaching Radar (SMART-R) is
a portable 5 cm Doppler radar. All equipment- antenna, power
generator, processors and readout computers are truck mounted to
provide maximum transportability. Originally located in the Florida
Keys during CAMEX-4, the radar was moved to the Venice Florida area
for landfall of TS Gabrielle on 14 Sept.
