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 ionosphere. The digisonde has been in operation since 1983. The Qaanaaq Digisonde is owned and operated by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Hanscom AFB, MA. Digisondes and ionosonde plots are described in: http://ulcar.uml.edu. 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 (emeryucar.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/Data_Services:Rules_of_the_Road
