Determination of the range of reflecting structures in the upper atmosphere: a frequency shift experiment
Entry ID: K055_1990_1991_NZ_1

Abstract: A HF Middle and Upper atmospheric radar is operated at Scott Base year round under automatic control for two experiments: the Partial Reflection Winds and the D-region polarimeter experiments. An intensive study into the nature and structure of the reflecting features of the upper atmosphere was investigated by extending, on a short term basis, the wind program to operate in phase coherent, ...

Quality This work was undertaken to complete the requirements for a PhD. The investigator used data from an ongoing study and modified equipment to extend the measurements. The data and results should be contained in the thesis. For any additional questions regarding the existing experimental set up, please see the associated PARENT DIFS or contact the investigators, Dr Graeme Fraser and Dr Andreas von Biel.
