Digisonde Ionospheric Data from the CEDAR Data Base at NCAR/HAO

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR)
Data Base at NCAR/HAO holds data collected from the Qaanaaq Digisonde
at Qaanaaq, Greenland (77.5N, 69.4W) for 1989. The data consists of
velocity vectors derived from a least-squares fit of a Fourier
analysis of scattering from many irregularities in the F region of the
