Clouds, Aerosol and Monsoon Processes-Philippines Experiment

The CAMP2Ex (Clouds, Aerosol and Monsoon Processes-Philippines Experiment) was a NASA-funded field study with three main science objectives: aerosol effect on cloud microphysical and optical properties, aerosol and cloud influence on radiation as well as radiative feedback, and meteorology related effects on aerosol distribution and aerosol-cloud interactions. Research on these topics requires a comprehensive characterization of aerosol, cloud, and precipitation properties, as well as the associated meteorological and radiative parameters. Trace gas measurements are also needed for airmass type analysis to characterize the role of anthropogenic and natural aerosols. These CAMP2Ex observations were delivered by NASA P-3B aircraft and SPEC Learjet 35A. The sampling strategy designed for CAMP2Ex allowed for coordinated flights for both aircraft to maximize the science return. The P-3B was used primarily to conduct remote sensing measurements of cloud and precipitation structure and aerosol layers and vertical profiles of aerosol and atmospheric state variable, while the Learjet flew below the P-3B to obtain the detailed cloud microphysical properties. During the 2019 field deployment (August 20-October 10), the P-3B conducted 19 science flights and the SPEC Learjet conducted 11 flights in the vicinity of the Philippines. Ground-based aerosol observations were also recorded in 2018 and 2019. CAMP2Ex was completed in partnership with Philippine research and operational weather communities. Measurements completed during CAMP2EX provide a 4-D observational view of the environment of the Philippines and its neighboring waters in terms of microphysical, hydrological, dynamical, thermodynamical, and radiative properties of the environment. The data target the environment of shallow cumulus and cumulus congestus clouds.
