Abstract:
"Entomological Radar Studies" offers a variety of information concerning the use of radar in entomological studies, including type of radar (scanning, tracking, airborne, and vertical looking); corn, earworm, helicoverpa zea (Boddie) behavior detected through radar; monitoring nocturnal moth activity; early warning of migration events, and, estimating fallout area. Color images depict both the radar equipment used in these studies and the screen patterns produced by insects. The purpose of this dataset is to characterize airborne behavior and dispersal of important agricultural insect pests.
