CAMEX-3 DC-8 NAVIGATION (DADS) DATA V1
Entry ID: dc8dads_1


Summary
Abstract: The CAMEX-3 DC-8 Navigation Data Aquisition and Distribution System (DADS) data files contain information recorded by navigation and data collection systems aboard the NASA DC-8 aircraft. These data files contain typical navigation data (e.g. date, time, lat/lon and altitude), and meteorological parameters such as wind speed and direction, temperature, cabin altitude, vertical speed, and saturation vapor pressure. These data are available in ASCII text file format and Graphics Interchange Format, where each file contains data recorded at one second intervals for each flight.
