The Maritime Continent (MC) exhibits tremendous meteorological variability in the context of a highly complex aerosol environment. In response to the need for detailed observations of the factors that influence aerosol-cloud-radiation interactions, and the need to understand how convection organizes and propagates through the MC, NASA and the U.S. Navy are conducting joint field operations in the region in 2019. The NASA Cloud, Aerosol, and Monsoon Processes Philippines Experiment (CAMP2Ex) is aimed at understanding aerosol-cloud-radiation interactions, while the U.S. Navy Propagation of IntraSeasonal Tropical Oscillations (PISTON) campaign is aimed at understanding convective organization and propagation, as well as the interaction between the atmosphere and ocean. Field operations are scheduled to take place between late August and early October 2019 with aircraft operations based out of Clark Airfield, Pampanga, Philippines, and Navy ship operations taking place in the western Pacific Ocean region east of Luzon Island. In this presentation, we highlight key results from CAMP2Ex, as well as its synergy with PISTON measurements. We show early analysis of observations, as well as results from high resolution modeling studies designed to examine convective processes.
