Fabry-Perot Interferometer Data in the CEDAR Data Base at NCAR/HAO

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 ... View entire text
