Abstract: The CAMEX-4 NPAA WP-3D Radar dataset used the NOAA WP-3D Orion aircraft, which has two separate research radars to collect meteorological data. One is mounted on the lower fuselage (C-band), and the other is located in the tail (X-band). CAMEX-4 focused on the study of tropical cyclone (hurricane) development, tracking, intensification, and landfalling impacts using NASA-funded aircraft and surface remote sensing instrumentation. Data from these radars consist of reflectivity in range and azimuth coordinates collected either in the horizontal (lower fuselage) or vertical (tail radar) planes. Doppler radial velocity is also collected by the tail radar. For further information and to obtain this data, please contact GHRC at
