Fabry-Perot Interferometer Data in the CEDAR Data Base at NCAR/HAOEntry ID: CEDAR_FABRY-PEROT
Abstract: The Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR) Data Base at NCAR/HAO holds data collected from the Fabry-Perot Interferometers (FPI). These data include brightness (often uncalibrated), neutral temperature, and line-of-sight neutral winds. Derived parameters include vector neutral winds. Of the 9 FPIs in the CEDAR Data Base, 8 use the measurements at 630 nm. The Peach ... Mountain FPI has measurements at 557.7 nm at around 97 km and OH (hydroxyl) measurements around 86 km. The FPI data include:
FPI red line data from Halley, Antarctica (75.5S, 26.6W). Data in the CEDAR Data Base are from 1988-1993. The station has been in operation since 1988. The contact person is Matthew Paley. The Halley FPI is operated by the British Antarctic Survey.
FPI monthly average red line data from Arequipa, Peru (16.5S, 71.5W). Monthly averaged data in the CEDAR Data Base are from 1983-1990. The FPI has been in operation since 1988. The contact person is Manfred Biondi. The Arequipa FPI is operated by the University of Pittsburgh with support from the NSF and NASA.
FPI red line data from Arecibo, Puerto Rico (18.35N, 66.75W). Data from 1980-1988 are in the CEDAR Data Base. The station has been in operation since 1972. The contact person is Craig Tepley. The Arecibo FPI is operated by Cornell University under agreement with the NSF.
FPI green line and OH data from Peach Mountain, USA (42.4N, 86.93W). Data from May 1993 through March 1994 are in the CEDAR Data Base. The FPI has been in operation since 1989. The contact person is Rick Niciejewski. The Peach Montain FPI is operated by the College of Engineering at University of Michigan with funding by NSF and NASA.
FPI red line data from Millstone Hill, USA (42.6N, 71.5W). Data from 1989-1995 are in the CEDAR Data Base. The MIT FPI has been in operation since 1986. The contact person is Dwight Sipler. The Millstone Hill FPI is supported by the NSF.
FPI red line data from Watson Lake, Canada (60.06N, 128.58W). Data from November 1991 through April 1992 are in the CEDAR Data Base. The FPI has been in operation since 1991. The contact person is Rick Niciejewski. The Watson Lake FPI is operated by the University of Michigan with support from the NSF and the USAF.
FPI red line data from College, USA (64.7N, 148.1W). Data between March 1981 and April 1983 are in the CEDAR Data Base. The FPI had been in operation from 1981-1986. The contact person is Robert Sica. The College FPI was operated by the University of Alaska with support from the NSF.
FPI red line data from Sondre Stromfjord, Greenland (66.99N, 50.95W). Data from 1983-1994 are in the CEDAR Data Base. The FPI has been in operation since 1983. The contact person is Rick Niciejewski. The Sondre Stromfjord FPI is operated by the University of Michigan with support from the NSF.
FPI red line data from Thule, Greenland (76,53N, 68.44W). Data between September 1987 and March 1989 are in the CEDAR Data Base. The FPI has been in operation since 1984. The contact person is Rick Niciejewski. The Thule FPI is operated by the University of Michigan with support from the NSF and from the USAF Research Laboratory.
