Abstract:
The NASA African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses (NAMMA) campaign is a field research investigation sponsored by the Science Mission Directorate of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). This mission was based in the Cape Verde Islands, 350 miles off the coast of Senegal in west Africa. Commencing in August 2006, NASA scientists employed surface observation networks and aircraft to characterize the evolution and structure of African Easterly Waves (AEWs) and Mesoscale Convective Systems over continental western Africa, and their associated impacts on regional water and energy budgets. NASA will also made extensive use of its orbiting satellites (including Aqua, TRMM, and the recently-launched Cloudsat/CALIPSO) and modeling capabilities to improve its forecasts and flight plans. The SMART-COMMIT dataset consists of data obtained from a suite of insitu and remote sensing instruments which measures parameters that characterize constituents of the atmosphere at a given location. The mobile system is comprised of many instruments including radiometers, lidar, particle sizers, gas monitors, meteorological sensors, tethered radiosonde, and others. Parameters measured include radiances, irradiances, back scatter profile, atmospheric state variables, aerosol scattering/absorbing, particle size distribution, trace gas concentrations, and sky images. This dataset also includes many derived products.
