Ionospheric Doppler Radars from the CEDAR Data Base at NCAR/HAO

Abstract: The Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR) Data Base at NCAR/HAO holds data collected from HF ionospheric doppler radars. The HF radars are organized into a community called SuperDARN. Eleven of these radars have data in the CEDAR Data Base. The basic parameters are the line-of-sight plasma irregularity velocity and velocity spread. Most of the HF radar data can be ... View entire text
