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 NOAA WP-3D Orion aircraft has multiple meteorological and
microphysical sensors. These include, for example, cloud particle
imagers and temperature and dewpoint probes. This dataset includes
navigation data as well as the meterological and microphysical data
for each mission.
