The CAMEX-4 DC-8 Nevzorov Total Condensed Water Content Sensor dataset was collected by the Nevzorov total condensed water content sensor which was used to measure the total water content of air sampled during the CAMEX-4 campaign. The Nevzorov water vapor probe flew aboard the NASA DC-8 aircraft during CAMEX-4 to study tropical storms and hurricanes. Nevzorov is a so-called hot-wire device, where two resistors are heated to evaporate all hydrometeors that touch their surfaces during the flight. Due to their shape, they are able to catch small droplets or droplets and ice crystals. The amount of energy necessary to evaporate particles is a direct measure of the liquid water content of the hydrometeor (liquid or frozen) and also gives an indication of the water vapor present.
