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.

Numerous Rawinsondes (radiosondes) were launched from Andros Island in
support of CAMEX-4. These sondes provided Atmospheric soundings of
temperature, pressure, relative humidity, wind, and altitude.
