Summary
Abstract: The data set consists of -simultaneous- measurements of both
mesospheric and thermospheric winds, kinetic temperatures, and
emission brightness of the tracers used in the measurements.

The measurements are made at 8 evenly-spaced longitudes and the
geographic zenith. Each measurement is about 3-5 minutes long,
depending on the local brightness of the tracers being measured.

The data set provides date, UT-time, direction, temperature, wind
and relative brigtness. This applies to the two mesospheric and
thermospheric winds. These data are complementary to our New
Zealand data (Mount John), which is also found at the CEDAR database
website.
