Abstract:
The Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric regions (CEDAR) is a program sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) designed to enhance the capability of ground-based instruments to measure the upper atmosphere and to coordinate instrument and model data for the benefit of the scientific community. The CEDAR Data Base (formally the Incoherent Scatter Radar Data Base) is a cooperative project between the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and several institutions that provide upper atmosphere data and model output for community use. The CEDAR Data Base contains: documentation, catalogue information, geophysical indices, summary plots, analysis software, and computer models. A catalogue is produced every year and is available on the WWW at: http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/Main_Page CEDAR instruments are located throughout the world. Only selected data from each instrument is available in the CEDAR Data Base. The on-line CEDAR Data Base contains information to contact investigators for additional data not found in the Data Base. The CEDAR Data Base currently contains approximately 10GB of data. A complete inventory of data and data availability is obtainable from the following: http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/Main_Page The CEDAR Data Base consists of the following: Geophysical Indices. Includes Dst, Kp, ap, Ap, solar 10.7 cm flux, sunspot number, AE, and IMF parameters. Large Model Output. Includes model output from the Assimilative Mapping of Ionospheric Electrodynamics (AMIE), Thermosphere Ionosphere General Circulation Model (TIGCM), and Global-Scale Wave Model (GSWM). Incoherent Scatter Radar. This is the primary data in the CEDAR Data Base. Includes ionospheric electron densities, ion velocities, and electron and ion temperatures. Ionospheric Doppler Radars. HF ionospheric doppler radars are organized into a collection of radars called SuperDARN (Super Dual Auroral Radar Network). Eleven radars have data in the CEDAR Data Base. Basic parameters include line-of-sight plasma irregularity and velocity spread. Digisondes. Consists of ion drift data from the Qaanaaq Digisonde. Fabry-Perot Interferometers. Basic parameters from FPI are brightness, neutral temperature, and line-of-sight neutral winds. IR Michelson Interferometers. Data include neutral temperatures derived from nightglow hydroxyl (OH). Lidar. Basic Lidar parameters are photocounts, relative neutral number density, and sodium or iron density. Middle Atmosphere Radars. Data are from MST radars, MF radars, LF radars, meteor wind radars and ST radars. There is only limited data in the CEDAR Data Base. Parameters include line-of-sight neutral winds and turbulence. Airglow Imagers and All-Sky Cameras. Data includes brightness data from imagers. None of the imager data are in digital form. Some airglow data is on video tape. Models. Consists of both theoretical models and empirical models. Source code is available from the CEDAR Data Base. Model output consists of geomagnetic field data, electron densities, electric fields, interpolations and models of NOAA and DMSP satellite data, wind models, ionospheric parameters, and other data. The CEDAR Data Base is accessible through the WWW and ftp, but users must have a valid access form, available from the WWW or ftp (see Access and Use constraints) or contact Barbara Emery (emery@ucar.edu ). See the WWW site for additional information on accessing the data and Rules of the Road procedures. http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/Main_Page
