Summary
Abstract: The Multi-center Airborne Coherent Atmospheric Wind Sensor (MACAWS)
was deployed during the Third Convection and Moisture Experiment
(CAMEX_3). Line-of-sight velocity and intensity as a function of
range, backscattered intensity, turbulence approximation, and complex
covariance data for the period of 3 August 1998 through 22 September
1998. The CAMEX-3 mission was to study hurricanes over land and ocean
in the U.S., Gulf of Mexico, Carribbean, and Western Atlnatic ocean
in coordination with multiple aircraft and reserach-quality radar,
lightning, radiosonde, and raingauge sites.
