Hourly scaled ionospheric characteristics for Macquarie Island, Mawson and Casey.
Entry ID: IPS_IONOSONDE

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Routine high latitude observations made in Antarctica form a climatological baseline of the ionosphere extending back to 1958 at Mawson and Casey, and for almost two decades at Davis and Macquarie Island. The ionosonde data collection program operates so that the ionosphere is sampled sufficiently often that changes can be unambiguously identified. Each data sample is called an ionogram and is ...
