Blink! is conducting a study of NASA DAAC websites and could use your help! The focus of the study is to determine how users access data from more than one NASA DAAC, and the questions will address the ease or difficulty in finding, exploring, and accessing needed data.  The goal of the study is to determine how best to improve NASA website interfaces and the consistency of user experiences. To participate and learn more, please see this page. Thank you!

Convection And Moisture EXperiment 3 (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). The third field campaign in the CAMEX series (CAMEX-3) was based at Patrick Air Force Base, Florida from 6 August - 23 September, 1998. CAMEX-3 successfully studied Hurricanes Bonnie, Danielle, Earl and Georges. CAMEX-3 collected data for research in tropical cyclone development, tracking, intensification, and landfalling impacts using NASA-funded aircraft and surface remote sensing instrumentation.

CAMEX-3 yielded high-resolution spatial and temporal data on hurricane structure, dynamics, and motion. 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.
