The CAMEX-3 DC-8 Airborne Vertical Atmospheric Profiling System (AVAPS) dataset consists of measurements from AVAPS, which uses dropsonde and Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers to measure the atmospheric state parameters (temperature, humidity, wind speed/direction, pressure) and location in 3-dimensional space during the dropsonde's descent once each half second. These measurements were collected in support of the third field campaign in the Convection And Moisture EXperiment (CAMEX) series, CAMEX-3. This field campaign took place from August to September 1998 based out of Patrick Air Force Base in Florida, with the purpose of studying various aspects of tropical cyclones in the region. AVAPS provided vertical profiles of temperature, humidity, pressure, and winds. The dataset files are available in netCDF-3 and ASCII format with browse imagery available in GIF image format.
