The data set comprises high-time resolution meteor wind velocity data from the southern hemisphere Falkland Islands radar (FIR), part of the Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN). The velocities are line-of-sight velocities aligned in the geographic meridional direction (from FIR beam 6, range gate 4). The data cover the interval from 2010 to 2011 inclusive. Funding was provided by BAS national capability funding. NERC grant NE/R016038/1 - National Capability - Polar Expertise Supporting UK Research.
A forecast model of the northern high-latitude ionospheric plasma motion as observed by the SuperDARN radars. The model comprises a set of regression coefficients. The user needs to specify the day-of-year and the monthly mean of the solar radio flux at 10.7 cm/2800 MHz, often called the f10.7 index. They also need to provide the value of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) component By and the Sun-Earth component of the solar wind velocity Vx, both in geocentric solar magnetospheric (GSM) coordinates. The regression coefficients are provided as two files, one can be used to model the north-south (NS) component of the plasma motion and the other to model the east-west (EW) component of the motion. Funding was provided by NERC standard grant numbers: NE/V002732/1, NE/N01099X/1, NE/V00283X/1, NE/V002686/1 and NE/T000937/1.
The data set comprises ionospheric vorticity estimates determined from measurements of ionospheric velocity made by overlapping pairs of northern hemisphere radars in the Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN). The vorticity estimates are separated into data files for each pair of SuperDARN radars that contributed to the whole data set. These data cover large regions of the northern hemisphere polar ionosphere, and the locations of the vorticity estimates are presented in both geographic and Altitude-Adjusted Corrected GeoMagnetic (AACGM) co-ordinates. The data cover the interval from 2000 to 2005 inclusive. This work was funded by NERC grant reference NE/R016038/1.
The data set comprises of ionospheric vorticity estimates determined from measurements of ionospheric velocity made by the Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN). The vorticity estimates have been determined across the whole of the northern hemisphere polar ionosphere. The data cover the interval from 2000 to 2005 inclusive.
