Project: CPEX-AW

The Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) has released the HALO, DAWN, ADM-Aeolus, and dropsonde data for the Convective Processes Experiment – Aerosols & Winds (CPEX-AW) campaign. CPEX-AW was a joint effort between NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) with the primary goal of conducting a post-launch calibration and validation activity of the Atmospheric Dynamics Mission-Aeolus (ADM-AEOLUS) Earth observation wind Lidar satellite in St. Croix. CPEX-AW is a follow-up of the Convective Processes Experiment (CPEX) field campaign from the summer of 2017. To accomplish its goals, the CPEX-AW team utilized the NASA DC-8 aircraft equipped with an Airborne Third Generation Precipitation Radar (APR-3), Doppler Aerosol WiNd Lidar (DAWN), High Altitude Lidar Observatory (HALO), High Altitude Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) Sounding Radiometer (HAMSR), and dropsondes.
