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 Cloud Microphysics dataset consists of particle size distributions from three instruments, the 2D-P (two dimensional precipitation probe), the 2D-C (two dimensional cloud probe) and the FSSP (Forward Scattering Spectrometer Probe). These three instruments yield precipitation, hydrometeor and aerosol sizes ranging from 0.3-6400 micrometers. Data is in the form of images and ascii tables.
