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.
