CPEX-CV

The Weather and Atmospheric Dynamics Program will execute an airborne field campaign on the NASA DC-8 based out of Cabo Verde during September 2022.  The goals of the new airborne mission will be collection of data to enable further study of tropical convection and associated processes affecting tropical North Atlantic dynamics as well as calibration and validation of ESA’s Aeolus, depending on the operational status of the sensor.
 
The new airborne campaign will address new and refined science goals, many similar to those originally proposed for CPEX-AW, but will likely extend into new areas of inquiry
