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 University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) Mobile Integrated
Profiling System (MIPS) is a mobile atmospheric profiling system. It
includes a 915 MHz Doppler profiler, lidar ceilometer, 12 channel
microwave profiling radiometer, Doppler Sodar, Radio Acoustic Sounding
System (RASS), Field Mills, and surface observing station.
This dataset contains 15 minute averaged 3-D wind
profiles. Additionally, data from each of the 5 beams (including
radial velocity and backscatter intensity) are contained in the
