Middle Atmosphere Radars (MST, MF, LF, Meteor Wind, and ST Radars) in the CEDAR Data Base from NCAR/HAO

Abstract: The Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR)
Data Base at NCAR/HAO holds data collected from middle atmosphere
radars including MST radars, MF radars (partial reflection), LF
radars, meteor wind radars, and ST radars with Meteor Echo Detection
and Collection (MEDAC) systems. Data in the CEDAR Data Base consist
of the following:
