Hourly-scaled ionospheric data from Vernadsky station
Entry ID: NASC_VERN_IONOSONDE


Summary
Abstract: Ionosphere sounding is carried out using the semi-automatic station ISP-42.
This is a radar system for impulse radio sounding of the ionosphere in the
height interval up to 800 km at frequencies 1.0-22.6 MHz. The impulses are
emitted every 15 minutes during the 20-second interval. Ionograms are processed
using the URSI technology and hourly averaged resulting raw data are stored in
ASCII format.
