Convective Processes Experiment (CPEX)

The NASA Convective Processes Experiment (CPEX) aircraft campaign will take place in the North Atlantic Ocean during the summer of 2017. This campaign hopes to collect data that could help to answer questions about convective storm initiation, organization, and growth. For this effort, NASA's DC-8 aircraft will log 100 hours of flight time and be equipped with multiple instruments capable of taking measurements that will help scientists improve their understanding of convective processes.
