CAMEX-3 DC-8 NAVIGATION (DADS) DATA V1

The CAMEX-3 DC-8 Navigation Data Acquisition and Distribution System (DADS) data files contain information recorded by navigation and data collection systems onboard the NASA DC-8 aircraft. These data files contain typical navigation data (e.g. date, time, lat/lon, altitude), and meteorological parameters (e.g. wind speed and direction, temperature, saturation vapor pressure) 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. These data are available in ASCII file format with browse imagery available in GIF file format. Each file contains data recorded at one second intervals for each flight.
