Short Name:


The CAMEX-4 GOES-8 Products dataset was collected during the CAMEX-4 field campaign, which ocused on the study of tropical cyclone (hurricane) development, tracking, intensification, and landfalling impacts using NASA-funded aircraft and surface remote sensing instrumentation. In support of the fourth Convection and Moisture Experiment (CAMEX-4), imagery from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite 8 (GOES-8) was collected and archived. Three channels were archived: channel 1-- visible (0.65 microns), channel 2-- infrared (11 microns) and channel 3-- known as the water vapor channel (6.75 microns). Data files are available in McIDAS format, and browse imagery is also available.
