A Meteor Radar for Measuring Mesospheric and Lower Thermospheric Winds and Temperatures at Davis Station
Entry ID: ASAC_2529

Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2529
See the link below for public details on this project.

A meteor radar will be installed at Davis Station to measure temperatures and wind velocities in the 80 to 100 km region of the atmosphere. It will do this by tracking the trail of ionised gas produced by meteors as they pass through this region. These trails are blown along by the winds ... View entire text
