Summary
Abstract: The Third Convection and Moisture Experiment (CAMEX-3) 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 third field
campaign in the CAMEX series (CAMEX-3), scheduled for 6 August
through 23 September, 1998, to study tropical cyclone development,
tracking, intensification, and landfalling impacts using NASA-funded
aircraft and surface remote sensing instrumentation.

The ER2-LIP consists of two electrical field mills, a conductivity
probe, and the associated data system. One of the field mills is
installed on the upper Q-bay hatch cover and the second one is mounted
on the aft section of the Advanced Microwave Precipitation Radiometer
(AMPR) faring (or on the lower E-bay hatch cover). The conductivity
probe is integrated on the right hand superpod nose cone. The ER-2 LIP
data system is mounted in a 19" vertical rack located in the aft
section of the ER-2 Q-bay. The ER-2 electric field mills and the
conductivity probe are compact sensors, each weighing less than 5 lbs.
