About the Mission

The NASA Convective Processes Experiment (CPEX) aircraft field campaign will take place in the North Atlantic-Gulf of Mexico-Caribbean Oceanic region during the early summer of 2017. This campaign hopes to collect data that can help to answer questions about convective storm initiation, organization, growth, and dissipation. 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. more>
