3rd Convection and Moisture Experiment (CAMEX-3)
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). CAMEX-3 collected data for research in tropical cyclone development, tracking, intensification, and landfalling impacts using NASA-funded aircraft and surface remote sensing instrumentation. At this site, students can learn about the CAMEX-3 missions, which produced spatial and temporal information on hurricane structure, dynamics, and motion from hurricanes studied in August and September 1998. These data, when analyzed within the context of more traditional aircraft, satellite, and ground-based radar observations, are providing additional insight to hurricane modelers and forecasters who continually strive to improve hurricane predictions. Materials available here include descriptions of the missions and instruments, datasets, news articles, and links to related sites.
