* SECTION: INCOHERENT SCATTER RADAR

  • ARO General Notes:
  • Watershed dates: ACF fitting routines changed from FACF to MRACF as of May
  • 85 and the Barker program changed (to a software decoder) as of Sep 86.
  • Both MRACF and the Barker software decoder are currently used (Jun 94).
  • Jun 94: Arecibo plans to reanalyze their contributions to the database
  • (CEDAR Post, Feb 94, p 9). Debate over some results such as Te/Ti < 1
  • and a post midnight maximum, has catalyzed an improved analysis procedure.
  • This will be applied systematically to the most recent experiments first
  • then back in time. There is hope that some missing experiments from 78-80
  • will be recovered at the same time and there is disussion of adding the
  • raw ACF data.
  • (Jun 95) ACF data have been replaced for world day runs from Jan 90 through
  • May 95. The KINDAT code for this analysis is 2010. The procedure is
  • given in "Analysis of the Arecibo World Day Data, October 1985 to May
  • 1995", (Draft June 1995) by M. Sulzer; printed copies may be requested by
  • sending email to me (bozo@ucar.edu). On 25 Sep 95, it was discovered
  • that all of these data are in local time; ADD 4 HRS TO CORRECT TO UT! (An
  • edit is forthcoming.)
  • (Jan 96) The reanalysis LT to UT edits are complete and ACF data have been
  • replaced back to October 85, except for experiments retained in ARO85111A,
  • three 1991 experiments (10 Jul, 10-11 Sep, 7-9 Oct), and Barker electron
  • density profiles for all periods. Those interested in the 1991 ACF
  • experiments should contact zhou@naic.edu because there are problems with
  • the current reanalysis of these three periods.
  • (May 96) The two previously omitted Barker sets have been reinstated
  • because the reanalysis does not affect the results.
  • (Jun 97) Mike Sulzer provided the following descriptions of data
  • reduction procedures for removing sattelite effects and calibrating
  • electron densities. These are apropos data starting October 1985.
  • Satellites:
  • Large spikes that appear once in the spectra are removed fairly easily
  • because we transmit seven frequencies at once, and any large deviation
  • from that repeating pattern can be detected. Satellites are not so
  • much of a problem with Arecibo WD data because we have such a strong
  • signal and there are not so many of them. Sometimes they go through
  • undectected and some of the outliers that appear in our data are
  • undoubtedly due to satellites. Other forms of interference are far
  • more serious.
  • Electron Density Calibration:
  • This is a somehwat difficult and time consuming problem. Here is the
  • procedure we are using.
  • A good ionosonde reading is found near the beginning of a radar run,
  • but after intitial adjustments to the radar, etc are complete. A
  • scale factor is derived which results in the correct electron density
  • coming out of the fitting process at this time. The data for this run
  • are fit using this factor. (A run might be a 24 hour period or a
  • multiple day period if continuous.) Then a parabola is fit to the peak
  • of each profile to give an accurate interpolated value of the pasma
  • frequency at the peak and the height at which it occurs. Then all of
  • the ionosonde values for that run are typed into the computer. (In the
  • future they will be on disk or tape already.) The ionosonde values are
  • plotted on the same graph and compared with the estimates from the
  • radar; bad ionogram readings are ignored. Corrections to the radar
  • data based on the good ionogram measurements are made by pointing and
  • clicking on the graph. If the corrections are small or we are near
  • solar max when the electron densities are very high, this ends the
  • procedure. However, if the corrections are large, and the densities
  • small, then the temperatures migh be in error due to the Debye length
  • factor. In these cases (which are in the minority), a set of scale
  • factors are generated and the data are refit.

  • These are meridional neutral winds data. They were prepared by SRI for Ray
  • Roble and Barb Emery (Jun 87); SRI refers to this as a WINDPORT tape. No
  • header record was provided but a number of caveats were mentioned in the
  • cover letter accompanying the tape:
  • (1) Vector velocities were derived from line of sight observations, also
  • calculated were average density and temperature profiles.
  • (2) The line-of-sight velocities were corrected for transmitter chirp in
  • consultation with Arecibo personnel.
  • (3) The uncertainties for Arecibo velocity data are arbitrary, not real.
  • (4) No error bars were used for the densities, temperatures and their
  • derivatives.
  • (5) MSIS 83 neutral densities were also used to calculate neutral winds.
  • (6) In calculating the winds, the Schunk and Walker (1973) O+O-collision
  • frequency was multiplied by 1.7.
  • (7) About using the data (by Vince Wickwar): Data he has presented were
  • smoothed by 1-hr running averages. Sometimes there was also averaging
  • over a limited altitude region. Although the meridional wind was
  • calculated to high altitudes, values are dubious above about 350 km.
  • In general the data are valid between the lowest altitude with good
  • signal to noise ratio and about 400 km. Above 400 km the radar data
  • may be contaminated by hydrogen, the SNR is low, and the correction
  • for ion-neutral collision frequencies is enormous. When using the
  • meridional winds, values are dropped when uncertainties exceed
  • 70 m/s at Arecibo.

  • E region neutral winds (KINDAT=2021) for April 2002 World Day
  • CHT General Notes:
  • The Chatanika ISR was moved to become the Sondre Stromfjord ISR in 1982.
  • Some chatanika data volumes have no header records, including a set of
  • six volume ([Ewinds or VPORT] X [summer,winter,equinox]). The following
  • notes accompanied the summer experiments and may be generally helpful:
  • - These are data from program VAST.
  • - Please note that the F10.7 parameters in the VAST output records with
  • KINDAT of 5103 have been assigned the wrong code values. F10.7 solar flux
  • (SA) 81 day average was given the code of 351. F10.7 of the previous day
  • day was given the code of 352. The units are 1/E-22W/m2/Hz.
  • - VAST calculates electric fields, vector velocities and conductivities.
  • VAST assumes the velocity field varies linearly with time. Data from five
  • positions are used to find the three line-of-sight velocities at the time
  • of the middle observation. Full error propagation, including covariance
  • terms, is included. The density and temperature data are combined to
  • obtain a spatial average for the time of the middle observation.
  • In addition, several criterea involving the least squares fit, as well
  • as relative absolute uncertainties, have been examined to determine
  • whether the derived F-region vector velocities are converted to electric
  • fields, and the good values are height integrated to find the best possible
  • estimate of the electric field. Starting in the D-region, the averaged
  • electron densities are used to calculate the conductivities. The
  • calculation has been improved to explicitly include the ion-neutral
  • collision frequencies and to include a model atmosphere.
  • - Since there are no headers, the KINDAT codes (identifying record type)
  • and various parameter codes used are as follows:
  • BASIC PARAMETERS:
  • Inputs to VAST from the center position.
  • KINDAT = 5100, 5101, 5102 -- Power channel data, including our best
  • estimate of the electron density.
  • Outputs from VAST. The times are those of the center position.
  • KINDAT = 5103 -- Power channel data, including the averaged temperatures
  • densities and the conductivities.
  • DERIVED PARAMETERS:
  • KINDAT = 15013 -- OAC (old autocorreltor data) data from VAST.
  • 15014 -- MAC data
  • PARAMETER CODES:
  • 471 = Indicates quality of data. The VAST quality code is based on the
  • input records quality codes. If all the inputs are considered
  • good (i.e. their 471 code value was 2), the output record is good:
  • = 2 implies all criterea are passed
  • = 1 implies at least one test failed
  • 3500 = Fit code.
  • 3510 = Derivitive of ion temperature with height [1.E-02 K/km]
  • 3511 = Derivitive of electron temperature with height [1.E-02 K/km]
  • 3518 = Mean Azmuth angle of position 1
  • 3519 = Mean Elevation angle of position 1
  • 3520 = Mean Az angle of position 2
  • 3521 = Mean El angle of position 2
  • (There are five records representing three antenna pointing
  • directions input for each record output by VAST. Consider
  • record A as position 1
  • record B as position 2
  • record C as position 3
  • record A as position 1 again
  • record B as position 2 again.
  • Position 3 pointing direction is given in code 130 and 140 values.
  • Thus running averages are computed from 5 records at a time. The
  • data records are typically interleaved in a pattern of three input
  • records followed by three with calculated values.)
  • 30010 = Begin year (UT)
  • 30020 = Begin month/day
  • 30030 = Begin hour/minute
  • 30031 = Begin centisecond
  • 30015 = End year
  • 30025 = End month/day
  • 30035 = End hour/minute
  • 30036 = End centisecond
  • - These 300__ time codes represent the extreme times of data in the
  • VAST average record. The prologue time represents the midpoint.
  • 3571 = Correlation coefficient Vxy
  • 3572 = Correlation coefficient Vxz
  • 3573 = Correlation coefficient Vyz
  • 3575 = Correlation coefficient Exy

  • Volumes with the suffix 'B' for all experiments through Oct 93 are a

  • are omitted, leaving only ACF height profiles. In these records, the
  • ACF values (real and imaginary at 33 lags) have been removed, thus

  • All CP-3-E and CP-3-F experiments KINDAT = 6310 and 6312) from
  • 27 Jan 87 to 20 Mar 91 used the wrong correlator program causing
  • artificially broadened spectrum and an underestimated doppler
  • shift. Estimates of induced errors obtained by alternating between
  • correct and wrong correlator programs, indicate ion temperature
  • overestimated by 10-20% and the ion velocity underestimated by a
  • similar amount when doppler shifts are moderate (several hundred m/s).
  • Further details may be obtained from EISCAT scientific staff.

  • A number of problems led to loss/corruption of significant amounts of data
  • during this experiment:
  • (1) At some time between 1420 and 1440 UT on September 21, the frequency
  • of one of the two long pulses changed from F12 to F15; the problem was
  • noticed around noon 23 Sep and corrected at 1205 (Tromso), 1120 (Kiruna)
  • and 1140 (Sodankyla). A factor of 2 was included in the system constant
  • (effectively doubling derived densities) for analysis of the following
  • periods: Tromso: 1440 Sep 21 - 1205 Sep 23
  • Kiruna: 1430 Sep 21 - 1120 Sep 23
  • Sodankyla: 1430 Sep 21 - 1140 Sep 23
  • (2) The transmitter was off between 1934 Sep 21 and 0726 Sep 22; restart
  • was okay as of 0837.
  • (3) A hardware problem caused a high system temperature in the long pulse
  • data from 1948 Sep 22 to 0829 Sep 23. Efforts were made to salvage
  • as much data as possible, however, some long pulse densities may be in
  • error around 1430 Sep 21 and 1130 Sep 23 (the latter for remote sites
  • only). Also results for 1948 Sep 22 to 0830 Sep 23 contain some obvious
  • errors and maybe some hidden ones.

  • The CP-4-A program is designed to study high latitude convection. The radar
  • points at a low elevation to the north and swings between two azimuths with
  • nominal dwell time of 150 seconds in each position and a cycle time of 5
  • minutes. Tristatic data are recorded, though the three antenna beams are
  • not too far off parallel, and the usual post processing of velocities is to
  • combine the pairs of Tromso results from the two azimuths to obtain the
  • horizontal component of velocity. This experiment makes identical
  • measurements on six different frequencies, and the results for each time
  • interval on the tape consist of the average of the six measurements,
  • followed by the six sets of individual results, which can be used for self-
  • consistency checks. Two gaps in experiment: 1630-1730UT on the 14th and
  • 17-21UT on the 15th due to an interruption for a diffferent experiment.

  • CP 5 A is a new experiment type, essentially a scanning CP 1 H experiment
  • with the pointing geometry taken from the central part of the CP 3 F scan.
  • The start ranges and range-resolutions of the measurements are adjusted by
  • using different radar controller programs for the different antenna
  • positions, in the same way as CP 3 F. The 30-min scan includes a longer
  • (10 min) dwell in the field aligned position to allow the remote sites to
  • take E-region measurements (at 96, 101, 109, and 120 km) as well as at the
  • F-region commmon volume height (278 km) which is used for all other scan
  • positions.
  • This experiment was almost trouble free. Two gaps: 1900-1910 UT on 5 Dec
  • due to a crowbar and 2200-2250 due to a change of experiment to support a
  • rocket launch. Note the experiment was restarted at 2250 UT so the scans
  • for the rest of the experiment were not synchronised to whole hours.
  • Anyone planning to analyse the Tromso CP 5 data for themselves should note
  • a small error in the :ELAN file which caused the wrong start range for the
  • high resolution (14 micros) power profile for the vertical antenna position
  • to be written to the parameter blocks on the raw data tapes. A value of 884
  • (88.4 km) was written instead of the correct value of 664 (66.4 km). The
  • correct value has been used for the ranges on the present result tapes.

  • CP-3-F (KINDAT= 6311 and 6312). A receiver recovery problem in Tromso
  • persisted through this experiment, with the effect that the zero lag of the
  • ACF's was too small and that the background noise varied with range for the
  • power profile measurements. The data were analysed using extrapolation
  • methods to obtain the zero lags and to correct the range-dependent noise.
  • Hence the results, in particular the power profiles, should be used with
  • care!

  • CP-5-A (KINDAT= 6501 and 6502), LTCS (lower thermosphere coupling study).
  • Data collection problems at all three sites.
  • -Tromso significant losses: 31 May 24 UT (antenna problems)
  • 1 Jun 20-21 (antenna problems)
  • 2 Jun 0- 4 (computer problems)
  • 3 Jun 0- 7 (intermittant xmitter problems)
  • 3 Jun 20-21 (computer problems)
  • -Kiruna recorded no data 3 Jun 1350 - 4 Jun 0910 UT due to computer problem.
  • -Sondankyla had a disk crash loosing data 30 May 1433 - 31 May 1330 UT.
  • The Tromso antenna problems seem to have affected the pointing accuracy
  • after 21 UT 1 June. The remote sites observed that the strongest signal
  • was not always centered at the expected range but varied systematically thru
  • each 30 minute cycle. For scan positions close to the vertical in Tromso
  • there was little effect on the data but the signal at the remotes gradually
  • drifted from the expected signal gate for lower transmitter elevations. The
  • remote site data have been analysed in the standard way, which assumes the
  • true signal to be in the center gate. Hence the derived remote-site
  • electron densities show a steep gradient outwards from the center of the
  • scans for the remainder of the experiment. The determination of velocities
  • is expected to be reliable, but since the effective snr was lowered, the
  • the associated uncertainties are larger than would have been the case in
  • in normal operation.
  • Additional remarks (received with Aug 89 data): This version of the
  • experiment was the same as run in December 1988. Both contained a small
  • error in the Tromso :ELAN file, such that the start range for the 14 us
  • power profile in the vertiacl antenna position was set to 88.4 instead of
  • 66.4 km. This parameter (I19 in the :ELAN file) is put in position 124 in
  • the parameter block on the raw data tapes. The analysis of the December run
  • was modified to use the correct start range (68.4 km) for these data but
  • this modification was not implemented for the May/June run. Hence, the
  • values (altitudes and densities) on the result tapes for the short power
  • profile in the vertical antenna position for this run are wrong and should
  • not be used.
  • Further erroneous information has been diescovered in the :DESC and Tromso
  •  :TLAN files which has similarly been inherited from the original SP-FR-LCCP
  • files. This affects neither the raw data nor the processed results but
  • could cause confusion. The commented start ranges for radar controller
  • program 5 are wrong in these files and have been corrected on 10 October
  • 1989 (as was the 68.4 km start range mentioned above). These values are

  • CP-4-A (KINDAT= 6402). A GITCAD/SUNDIAL campaign. Data from the start of
  • the experiment to 0911 UT 3 Oct were reanalyzed from tape due to the wrongly
  • recorded azimuth.
  • The original version of CP-4-A, run Jan 1988, was adapeted for this
  • operation to include the possibility of shifting the ranges covered by the
  • measurements, by increments of one gate. The idea was to to collect data
  • from further north if a significant signal was detected in the last gate.
  • This option was implemented at 1630 UT 2 Oct, when the range of the first
  • signal gate was increased from 525 to 600 km. The start range of the
  • measurements is given by parameter I18, contained in position 123 in the
  • parameter block on the raw data tapes (see :ELAN file). Electron densities
  • were sufficiently high during this experiment that the SNR threshold of 0%
  • in the data analysis was rarely approached.
  • The remote sites were able to receive only five of the six frequencies used
  • in this experiment - channel 5, planned to receive F5, was attenuated with
  • 63 dB. However, the format of the results on the tapes has been kept the
  • same for all sites, i.e., the results of averaging all chanels appear first
  • for each post-integration, followed by the results from the six individual
  • channels. Hence the results from channel 5 at the remotes are all zero.
  • The raw data from channel 5 were not used to construct the averaged results
  • at the remote sites.
  • The averaged results have been assigned a frequency code of 9325 (not used
  • in the experiment) to allow them to be easily selected from the tape
  • (applies to all sites).
  • For Kiruna, site, the apparent velocities from channel 8, receiving F2
  • (fequency code 9305) were approximately zero from the start of the
  • experiment until 15 UT 3 Oct, due to a fault in the receiver causing the
  • imaginary part of the ACF to be very small in that channel (in fact, no
  • signal but constant offset voltage for the sine component). No obvious
  • effect was seen in the real part of the ACF. Since these data were included
  • in the production of the average results, the averaged velocities are less
  • well estimated for the affected period, though with no systematic bias from

  • CP-4-A (KINDAT= 6402). Transmitter problems early on 9 Oct led to data
  • gaps: 0041-0112, 0215-0224 and 0237-0250. Raw data are also missing for
  • the interval 0222-0229 Oct 8 when data recording failed to restart after
  • a change of disc set. Post-integrated results are available.
  • Close inspection of the original results from this experiment revealed that
  • the zero-lags of the Tromso ACF's were slightly too large in all channels.
  • This was only evident during the intervals with small signal levels (~few
  •  %), which were mainly confined to the night of 7-8 Oct. To overcome this
  • problem, the data were re-analyzed using values for the zero lags obtained
  • by parabolic extrapolation from lag two and lag one. The results on tape
  • are from this modified analysis.
  • The diurnal pattern of positive excursions of system temperature during
  • this experiment are due to excess sky noise. The sharp decreases and slow
  • increases back to nominal levels between 2230 Oct 7 and 1230 Oct 8 are due
  • to the behavior of the noise injection.
  • One further detail is that two of the frequency codes in the Sodankyla
  • results have been assigned the valus 8275 and 8315 instead of 9275 and
  • 9315 respectively, due to an error in the computer readback of the

  • CP-4-A (KINDAT= 6402). Almost problem-free apart from a small number of
  • crowbars and high voltage trips. However, the transmitter experienced a
  • large number of cases of high reflected power after 1730 Dec 5, attributable
  • to fequency F6 (930.5 MHz). In an effort to cure this, F6 was changed at
  • 1809 to F3 but with no improvement; subsequently, F2 and F9 were tried
  • with no change, but at 1824 a change to F10 (932.5 MHz) helped, so this
  • configuration remained to the end of the experiment. By coincidence,
  • this (previously unused) frequency corresponds to the code (9325) on the
  • result tape which is used to identify the results from the average of all
  • the channels in each post-integration period. Thus from 1824 there are
  • two sets of results with this code for any given time; the first is the
  • average as before, while the last is from measurements at F10.
  • At 1830 Dec 7 the radar controller program was changed by issuing the
  • command "GOTO BLOCK 4". This changes the start range of the first gate
  • from 525 km to 600 km; i.e., it moves all gates further out by the
  • equivalent of one gate. These revised ranges were maintained until the
  • end of the experiment.

  • CP-1-I (KINDAT= 6117,6118). This experiment directly followed a 3 day CP-4
  • run. Irregular behavior of the system temperature continued through this
  • experiment.
  • Sodankyla experienced software problems when initially starting CP-1 and
  • eventually had to reload some real-time programs, joining in the operation
  • at 1100 (50 minutes late).
  • A curious feature was observed in the Kiruna data during this experiment,
  • namely a coherent-type signal in the first two gates for E-region positions.
  • Five signal gates are sampled for remote station CP-1 measurements; the
  • timing is adjusted so that the strongest true signal is in the center (3rd)
  • gate while some spillover is seen in gates 2 and 4. The unwanted coherent
  • signal, thought to arise from tropospheric scatter, was strongest in gate
  • one for the highest E region altitides (125 and 117 km) and strongest in
  • gate 2 for the lowest altitudes (90 and 96 km). For the intermediate
  • heights (101 and 109 km) it was approximately equally strong in gates 1 and
  • 2, though these ratios may have changed with time. It is likely that the
  • analysed data have been contaminated by this signal during parts of this
  • experiment, particularly at the lowest altitudes. Typical signal magnitudes
  • seen in gate 1 at 124 km were ~2-3% with intermittent spikes reaching 100-
  • 200%. It is recommended that these E-region Kiruna results should not be
  • used without careful checking of the raw data, which may help identify
  • uncontaminated periods for detailed studies. Neither Kiruna F-region data
  • nor Sodankyla measurements were affected by this feature.

  • CP-1-J (KINDAT= 6119,6120). CP-1-J is the new version of common program 1,
  • the main difference being the replacement of the multipulse scheme by one
  • using alternation codes for E- and lower F-region measurements.
  • Additionally, the number of power profile gates is changed. Both
  • alternating code pulses and long pulses are received at the remote sites,
  • resulting in two sets of ACF results for each post-integration interval.
  • Antenna pointing is identical with CP-1-I. Further details can be found in
  • the description files on the tape.
  • The particular combination of frequencies used for the different pulse
  • schemes during this operation resulted in occasional contamination of the
  • high resolution power profile measurements by plasma line echoes from the
  • long pulse transmission. This is most evident as excess power at the
  • shortest ranges where true ionospheric scatter is expected to be
  • negligable. While it is recommended to use these results with great care,
  • there are periods of uncontaminated data which can be cross-checked for
  • validity with the medium resolution power profile results. The latter
  • cover altitudes above 68.7 km, compared with 62.2 km for the power profiles
  • (and 86.8 km for the alternating code data) which have been used in the
  • analysis are sightly lower than the original estimates for SP-EI-ALTCP1
  • which were included in the symbolic files when this experiment was run.
  • These original files were included on the tape, as well as the revised
  •  :GDEF and :DESC files where these changes are noted.
  • The transmitter was turned off 0740-0813 Apr 2 to allow investigations into
  • the apparent excess power in the power profile data, but raw data from
  • Tromso are missing anyway for 0513-0900 due to an error in data recording
  • following a change of disc set. However, results from an initial analysis
  • of data integrated in real time are available for this interval and are
  • appended as the final Tromso data files for this experiment (3 files
  • 04-10 UT). Note that the electron densities from the preliminary analysis
  • were 20 % higher than the correctly scaled ones of the final analyis;
  • the electron temperatures from the 0513-0900 interval are thus
  • underestimated. The start ranges of the two power profiles and the
  • alternating code results in this interval are slightly larger than the values
  • used in the subsequent analysis of the rest of the data set, as noted above.
  • Data are missing from Kiruna for 14-16 UT on the same day due to an
  • antenna problem.
  • The frequency of one of the second local oscillators in Tromso became
  • changed from its nominal value following a crowbar at 1116 UT Mar 31. This
  • resulted in an apparent decrease of electron density and increased variance
  • in the results from the alternating code scheme (as well as reduced densities
  • from the high resolution power profile) until the frequency was corrected
  • at 1200 UT.

  • CP-3-F (KINDAT= 6119,6120). At 0730 Sep 23, correlators were swapped
  • between the UHF and VHF sides (in an attempt to identify the suspected
  • correlator problem in the VHF side). The correlators remained in this
  • configuration for the remainder of the experiment. Several gaps in the
  • results appeared after this time, either in single gates or in whole
  • profiles for a single post-integration period. The cause of these gaps
  • is due to digital errors producing a spike in a single 10-sec dump,
  • occurring on average a few times per hour. Whole profiles are affected
  • if the spike appeared in that part of the dump containing either the
  • background or calibration gates. These spikes appear to be single data
  • points with very large negative or positive values, and could in principle
  • be screened out by a suitably designed algorithm to provide a more
  • complete set of results. This process has not been implemented in this
  • version of distributed results. There are also additional short gaps in

  • Some results are missing from Sodankyla during both nights due to

  • CP-4-B (KINDAT= 6404). Version B is similar to CP-4-A, designed to measure
  • high geomagnetic latitude ion velocities, but it differs significantly in
  • method of operation. CP-4-B is a VHF experiment, measuring from two different
  • azimuths via a split-beam geometry. Two panels of the VHF antenna (Kinst=74)
  • are phased at 344.7 degrees azimuth, so there are simultaneous observations
  • along both azimuths, rather than successive as in CP-4-A.
  • Three frequencies are commutated to provide a single set of ACF's and power
  • profiles for both beams in the same data dump in CP-4-B. The results on the
  • tape have been formatted such that the derived parameters from each beam
  • direction are in separate logical records for each post-integration
  • interval (150 sec). Thus, there are two logical records for each interval
  • which differ in 1D azimuth values. Results for the phased beam constitute
  • the first of each pair of records; this can be inferred from the latitudes
  • and longitudes of the gate positions. As a further aid to separating the
  • results, the frequency codes are uniquely assigned (2232 for phased and
  • 2234 for unphased). Only ACF results are included although power profiles
  • are measured with this experiment, the results showed some systematic
  • features (not of ionospheric origin) which are still being investigated.
  • A further note about the raw data: The codes defining the azimuth of
  • the phased beam in the parameter block were reset to zero at 0902 UT 24

  • (connected to channels 3 and 4) had not been set correctly since the start
  • of the experiment due to another loose cable. They were manually reset.

  • The imaginary parts of the alternating code ACFs were distorted (large,
  • positive values) in several gates around the E-region peak when electron
  • densities were large. This occurred mainly in the periods 0100-0230 and
  • 1900-2200 Oct 19 and caused non-convergence of the data analysis (flagged

  • CP-1-K (KINDAT=6122, 6121). Although this experiment was called CP-1-K,
  • after 10 minutes operation the Tromso antenna was pointed vertically and
  • the remote antennas were steered to intercept the beam. This configuration
  • was maintained until the end of the experiment. The reason for doing this
  • was to provide complementary measurements for the simultaneously-run CP-7
  • experiment.
  • Even though the UHF high voltage was kept comparatively low because of
  • known problems with leakage through the receiver protector, the far long
  • pulse gates were contaminated at times. These were not, however, the
  • times of largest HV. One effect of this appears as an increase of
  • system temperature around 1100. The main consequence was a gap of about
  • 10 minutes in the results at about 1230. The alternating code results
  • are complete, but the furthest long pulse gates were sometimes not fitted
  • due to low SNR. The heater was operating on 13 Apr 1139-1144 at 4.04 MHz
  • and 1158-1202 at 4.544 MHz. No effect was seen in the UHF radar data.

  • CP-7-F (KINDAT=6712, 6711). The experiment start was scheduled for 1600
  • but was started early to allow data-taking during a short heater operation
  • for calibration purposes. The experiment was then left running when the
  • calibration had finished. Heater frequencies of 4.04 MHz and 4.544 MHz
  • were used, but only 4.04 MHz produced an observable effect in the radar
  • data. The heater 'on' periods (1s on, 9s off) are as follows on 9 May
  • (there may also be effects during tuning-up between these times):
  • 1235-1249 UT 4.544 MHz
  • 1254-1250 4.04
  • 1304-1312 4.544
  • The radar operation was relatively trouble-free, producing analyzable data
  • up to ~1400km.
  • Discrepancies occurred between the CPU clock and the real-time clock on

  • CP-4-B (KINDAT=6404). This experiment started 1600 5 Jul but operational
  • difficulties, related mainly to the transmitter, prevented good data from
  • being collected until 1905. At 2022 the experiment was stopped and the
  • three default frequencies (F3, F4, F5) were changed to F6, F7, F8 because
  • of the better characteristics in terms of reflected power levels of the
  • latter set. The frequency code for the two beam directions change from
  • 2232 and 2234 to 2238 and 2240, respectively, at this time. Problems with
  • the transmitter persisted through the first half of the experiment, with
  • several HV trips; as a consequence the high voltage was kept relatively
  • low throughout the run.
  • There is a data gap 1038-1120 6 Jul due to a mains power break, following
  • which, the performance of the transmitter was more stable than earlier.

  • CP-6-B and SP-EI (KINDAT=6604). The receiver arrangement was similar to
  • that used during earlier operations of the paair of experiments; the CP-6
  • data were received through the VHF receiver system (ALLX) and the SP-EI
  • data were taken into the Y input of the UHF receiver system. However,
  • contrary to the name of the SP-EI-CP6BV-EW experiment, the beam was NOT
  • phased to the west as earlier, but simply steered to the north by moving
  • the half-antenna in elevation.
  • The experiments were scheduled to be started at 1600 10 Aug, but the
  • start was delayed due to a series of HV trips. After several hours a
  • burned cable close to the VHF klystron was discovered and replaced.
  • Many HV trips occurred after the restart on 11 Aug. The transmitter was
  • turned off 1942-2035 to allow aluminum shielding to be put around the
  • new cable. This improved matters but trips occurred every ~5 to ~25
  • minutes, each causing gaps of 2-3 minutes. Although not ideal, these
  • frequent brief gaps were deemed acceptable considering the main
  • experimental objective was to determine mesospheric winds with time
  • scales of ~tens of minutes or more.
  • A few crowbars occurred among the HV trips, but their frequency was typical
  • until an increase early 13 Aug. This occasionally caused the ND computer
  • to hang. It was thus decided to cancel the experiment at 1123.

  • CP-7-F (KINDAT=6712, 6711). The VHF system was tested during the morning
  • of 6 Sep but proved to crowbar easily at low voltages. It was therefore
  • raised as slow rate, reaching ~60kV by 1000, the planned start time. Over
  • the next 3 hrs, several crowbars occurred and the high voltage could not be
  • raised above 70kV. At 1308 there was another crowbar, following which it
  • was discovered that one of the buffer decks was failing to pulse. The deck
  • was raised from the oil tank and tested, and eventually a fault was found
  • in the ground level amplifier. The transmitter was back on by 1900,
  • which became the rescheduled experiment start time. Operation continued
  • until 2200 7 Sep, but with a considerable number of short breaks due to
  • crowbars, IPA trips, and VAC-ION trips. There is a gap of about 30 min.
  • after 0100 7 Sep due to various problems, including computer restarts,

  • CP-3-G (KINDAT=6314, 6313). 6 Dec is Finnish independence day, a national
  • holiday. The experiment was started remotely from Tromso but experienced
  • DMA errors and problems with RT programs. These were subsequently fixed
  • by the duty staff and the experiment was restarted correctly at 0900. The
  • heater was tuned to 4.04 MHz at 0910 6 Dec (antenna field 2, vertical beam,
  • O-mode) and pulsing (1s on, 9s off) began at 0912:20. A narrow region of
  • heater induced backscatter was seen near 230 km for the dumps ending at
  • 0913:10-0913:40 when the radar was at elevation angle of 77 degrees,
  • looking South, but not for dumps 0914:10-0916:00 when the antenna was
  • vertical.
  • The same procedure was repeated 8 Dec, with tuning up 1035-1039 and
  • transmission 1042-1045 and again 1112-1116. In all these cases the
  • critical frequency shown by the dynasonde was below 4 MHz and no heater
  • effects were seen in the radar data. The CP operation was interrupted
  • 1530-1700 6 Dec to allow a UK special programme in support of local

  • CP-3-G and CP-7-F (KINDAT=6314,6313,6712). The CP-3 program was interrupted
  • on 1 Feb between 1925 and 2100 for a special program for the UK which
  • required clear skies and aurora. Although it used only VHF, the UHF
  • was also shut down to avoid interference with optical equipment. After
  • restarting, the high voltage UHF was steadily increased to about 93kV
  • (1.4MW peak power); meanwhile the two VHF klystrons were delivering a
  • combined output between 2.8 and 2.9MW peak power. Initial analysis
  • revealed the VHF signal strength dropped by a factor of two 1020-1025
  • Feb 2 and remained at that level. The cause was not known (as of Mar 96),
  • but the data were reanalysed with an adjusted system constant of 0.37.
  • The Tromso UHF antenna azimuth drive developed a fault at 0130 Feb 3,
  • though the experiment continued until 9 UT when a 1 hour interuption was
  • used to fix it.
  • Near midnight 3 Feb a combination of computer an software problems caused
  • several breaks in operation. One more interuption was when the UHF mode-anode
  • failed.
  • Kiruna and Sodankyla station operations were smooth, though interference
  • at both sites was visible, particularly to the South.

  • CP-1-K and CP-4-B (KINDAT=6122,6121,6404). All three UHF receivers and
  • both VHF receivers performed well until 1712 Mar 2. All three klystrons
  • operated nominally for the duration of the experiments but with a number
  • of breaks of several minutes data taking following crowbars (Feb 28: 1447-

  • 0509-0516, 1447-1450, 1456-1458). At 1712 Mar 2, the radar controller lost
  • synchronization with the real-time clock and could not be forced back to
  • the correct time. The same thing began at 1724 on the VHF experiment.
  • CP-1 was stopped for good at 1941 and CP-4 at 2220.
  • The geophysical conditions were disturbed most of the time but quieter during

  • CP-6-B (KINDAT=6604). The experiment scheduled was a split beam CP-6
  • operation with one beam vertical and the second pointing to the north,
  • however, only a single beam was possible over a shorter period than
  • planed. 1 May the UHF receiver side was configured to take the off-vertical
  • VHF signals in the usual way with split-beam operation, but the transmitter
  • would not operate (and repairs were impossible on a holiday) so start
  • was postponed until the next day. After starting at 0820, no ionospheric
  • signals ere observed by either beam. As geophysical conditions were quiet,
  • this was put down to absence of precipitation, but when the data analysis
  • produced no results at all, other explanations were sought. Both CP-4
  • and CP-7 were tested and verified that some signals were passing down
  • the receiver chain. This was also tested independently using the small
  • VHF transmitter near the antenna - those signals were seen on both the
  • oscilloscope and with the RTGraph (as a DC spike). The wiring configuration
  • was changed back to normal CP-6 at 1210 with no dramatic affect. Eventually
  • weak signals were evident in the UHF system (off vertical beam), which
  • coincided with a significant increase in geomagnetic activity. It is
  • possible there was no D/E-region to return a signal at earlier times,
  • but other causes (e.g., an intermittant fault) cannot be ruled out. The
  • vertical beam produced no signals so both beams were made parallel to be
  • sure that both were pointing at the same target. Still there was no
  • signal from the A-side. The cables were interchanged at the receiver
  • input, resulting in the expected switch and confirming the receivers were
  • operating. This isolated the problem to the A-side antenna T/R switch which
  • precluded dual beam operation, so at 1313 a normal CP-6 receiver path
  • commenced. The experiment continued with both klystrons transmitting but
  • for operational reasons klyston A was shut off at 1359, causing the
  • RTGraph to show a peak power of 0 kW. To adjust for this, the integration
  • and analysis programs were changed to pick up the peak power from position
  • 101 in the parameter block.
  • Crowbars resulted in two 1 hour gaps starting 2122 May 3 and 0327 May 4.
  • The peak power value in the parameter block was not set after the restart
  • May 4, so the data were analysed assuming 1.4MW and all the data were
  • reanalysed following a calibration using the UHF radar later that day.
  • CP-1 and CP-7 had been carefully calibrated during the run 28-9 Mar using
  • heater and dynasonde data and the CP-1 power profiles are considered accurate
  • for calibration of the ongoing CP-6 experiment. CP-1 was run on test
  • purposes at 1050 and comparision to the CP-6 data showed electron densities
  • to be 1.8 times higher. So the system constant was changed to 0.66 from
  • 1.18 and the data reanalysed to give close agreement with the CP-1 profiles.
  • May 5: The peak power was again not recorded in the paramete block following
  • a crowbar at 0013. This was fixed at 0236, and the data were analysed
  • assuming a power of 1.4 MW. Finally an HV trip shut down the transmitter
  • ending the experiment. (WHEW!)

  • CP-1-K (KINDAT=6122, 6121). On 19 Jun, Sodankyla had a disk crash, which
  • was replaced and running 1506 Jun 20. Kiruna started at 1306 after
  • replacing a fan in the correlator. In Tromso, both experiments started
  • on time. At 1244 the L02 for channel 3 on UHF (one of the two long

  • CP-6-B (KINDAT=6604). The scheduled experement included CP-2, but that
  • portion was cancelled because of a high filament current in the UHF
  • system after water leak repairs. The VHF start was delayed mainly because
  • of a faulty 30MHz reference signal. A standard oscilloscope was put in
  • place producing the expected signal levels and an apparent power profile
  • from CP-6. However, no spectra were visible during conditions when they
  • should have been seen. A test of CP-7 showed good data and it uses channels
  • 4, 6 and 8 while CP-6 uses channel 5. In view of the obvious problem with
  • no remedy, the experiment was cancelled at 10PM local time. On 24 Oct the
  • problem with the VHF receiver was discovered to be a 50Hz contamination of
  • the L02 on channel 5. The experiment was started at 0916 taking the L02
  • from channel 6. The spectra were still poor, so L02 from channel 7 was
  • substituted producing satisfactory improvement.
  • A data gap 24 Oct 2112-2315, due to IPA problems, was followed by a few more
  • brief breaks for adjustments. A power break about 0800 Oct 25 instigated
  • attempts to revive the UHF system. The VHF experiment was restarted at
  • 1512 though the signals were so weak that no spectra could be seen. InitiallY
  • quiet geomagnetic conditions were blamed for no specta, but after a crowbar
  • at 1659 the signals were even more strange, so testing commenced, but with
  • no obvious solution, the experiment was cancelled sometime after midnight.
  • Further investigations on the 26th revealed that drive level to the

  • through 1600 Oct 27.

  • CP-3-G (KINDAT=6314, 6313 and 6712). The Tromso long pulse modulation
  • used only 3 (instead of 4) channels because the fourth was attenuated
  • 63dB. The long pulse electron densities were compared during the day time
  • with simultaneous dynasonde data using just the vertical and near vertical
  • positions of the CP-3 scan. A calibration factor of 1.31 in the analysis
  • agreed well with foF2 values until 1144-1210 Nov 22. After that time
  • densities were consistently lower than the foF2 values. Although no
  • malfunction was found the magnitude of the difference suggests one more
  • channel had been lost. The data from 1200-1600 were reanalyzed using 1.80
  • calibration factor to force agreement with the foF2 values (1.95 was tried
  • too but yielded larger differences). Note that the UHF klustron was

  • CP-3-G (KINDAT=6314,6313). This operation began with very many HRP
  • trips and so was run at slightly reduced power for the first 10 hours
  • or so. An unusual problem resulted in loss of data between 1604 and
  • 1755 UT on 22 January. The whole system seemed to be functioning
  • nominally, with no alarm conditions, but there was actually no RF
  • output. This was ascribed to an IPA failure and corrected by
  • rebooting the PC controlling the UHF transmitter.
  • The operation ended abruptly before the scheduled time following an
  • HRP at 0810 UT on 24 January. No signals were received in Troms~
  • following this, although the remote sites continued to see signal.
  • The cause was a leak of coolant water in the hub room. This would
  • require several hours to fix so the operation was terminated. A very
  • slight, steady increase in system temperature had been observed over
  • the preceding 24 hours (about 10 K), which was doubtless linked to the
  • ensuing problem.
  • A calibration factor of 1.31 (the same as used for the last CP-3 in

  • incident. The transmitter performed very well, with just a few HRP
  • trips and a couple of crowbars. The Troms~ system temperature showed
  • four steps up and down, by about 10 K, during the operation, along
  • with a slow increase by about 10 K during the last 8 hours of the
  • experiment. No obvious cause for these steps could be found. As all
  • sites were otherwise operating normally, it was decided not to stop
  • the experiment for investigations during the scheduled operation.
  • The heater was operated at 4.04 MHz between 1250 and 1308 UT on 19
  • March. Spikes in the power profiles at about 210 km resulted from
  • this.
  • Sodankyla had a correlator problem between 0340 and 0700 UT on 21
  • March, resulting in loss of data. Kiruna suffered a radar controller
  • fault between 0409 and 0730 UT on 22 March, resulting in corruption of
  • the data.

  • CP-4-B (KINDAT=6404) VHF antenna only. The data from the phased beam
  • were noisy during the first 50 minutes (1100-1150 UT) due to a
  • disconnected cable into the first local oscillator. There are three
  • significant data gaps in this run, one of which was planned: 1507-1627
  • UT 14 May - the transmitter was turned off to allow the capacitor
  • banks to be connected in parallel. 1847-1935 UT, 14 May - a new
  • countdown was needed after a crowbar. 0456-0715 UT, 15 May - power
  • break.

  • CP-1-K (KINDAT=6122,6121). There were several short breaks in
  • transmission during the early part of this experiment. These were
  • caused by a fault with the intermediate power amplifier that inhibited
  • RF transmission without causing an error condition. The breaks were
  • principally at 10 UT (short), 1110-1138 UT, 1330-1340 UT and 1510-1536
  • UT. A faulty relay was replaced during the last of these. Except for
  • a mains power break from 1123-1148 UT on 18 June, the transmitter then
  • stayed on the air throughout.
  • Following a fault with the UPC at 0440 UT on 18 June, the Tromso radar
  • controller was set to a pre-integration time of 10 seconds instead of
  • the normal 5 seconds. This was corrected at 0720 UT. During the
  • intervening 2.5 hours the remote site snr was thus reduced by 50%.
  • A comparison of the EISCAT peak F-region electron densities on this
  • tape (analysed with a calibration factor of 1.38) with those
  • determined from foF2 values from the dynasonde showed that the EISCAT
  • densities from this analysis are about 15% too high.

  • CP-2-E (KINDAT=6210,6209). This experiment ran from 10 UT on 16 July
  • to 16 UT on 17 July, with many problems due to crowbars. The breaks
  • were mostly just a few minutes, but more significant ones occurred at
  • 1507-1710 UT and 1730-1837 UT on 16 July.
  • Good tristatic data were recorded until 1507 UT on 16 July, when the
  • transmitter went down. The experiment was subsequently restarted in
  • Tromso at 1710 UT. As all 3 sites are synchronised to a 6-min cycle
  • with a whole hour as origin, this new start time threw Tromso out of
  • step with the remotes.
  • After further difficulties in Tromso, the experiment there was started
  • again at 1837 UT. Thus the Tromso scan was 1 minute behind the remote
  • sites, which had started their most recent scan at 1836 UT. This
  • condition prevailed until the end of the experiment.
  • A 1-min delay in Tromso means that some of the signal is lost at the
  • remote sites, for the following reason. Each position in CP-2 is
  • nominally 90 seconds. But the antenna motions take up 27, 25, 40 and
  • 10 sec respectively for the 4 positions. Subtracting the 1-min delay
  • leaves true common volume times of 3, 5, 0 and 20 seconds,
  • respectively, in this case. (These values are slightly different for
  • the two remote sites.)
  • Thus, at the remote sites, one position observed no signal, two had
  • little signal, and the fourth had lower snr than usual. The Tromso
  • data were not affected.
  • Although resolved velocity records are included, the velocities are
  • are all zero (when they should be missing). The data must have been
  • included on the tape by mistake. Almost all of the experiment was run
  • with Tromso out of synchronisation with the two remote receiver sites.
  • Thus tri-static velocities could not be computed. However, as this
  • was CP-2 (4-position, 6-minute scans), some information may be
  • retrievable from the monostatic data using beam-swing calculations.

  • CP-3-F (KINDAT=6312,6311). Note that this was CP-3-F, the old version
  • of CP-3 with reversed (i.e. north to south) scanning direction.
  • The Sodankyla elevation drive motor failed at 2320 UT on 13 August,
  • ending data-taking there.
  • In Tromso the experiment was stopped between 1600-1642 UT on 13 August
  • for investigation of a hot elevation drive. A computer problem in
  • Tromso caused a gap in the experiment between 0828-1045 UT on 14
  • August.

  • CP-4-B (KINDAT=6404) VHF antenna only. This was planned to be a joint
  • operation starting at 10 UT with CP-1 on the UHF side. However, it
  • proved impossible to raise enough power from the UHF transmitter and
  • the plan was abandoned at 1425 UT. The problems with trying to get
  • the UHF transmitter working also disrupted the VHF side during this
  • period. When the UHF experiment was abandoned, CP-4 was stopped to
  • allow the capacitor banks to be connected in parallel. The experiment
  • was finally started at 1631 UT. Several HV trips were experienced
  • throughout the experiment, resulting in losses of 1-2 minutes of data
  • each time.

EIS961008A 195 22388 37317 81608704 08 Oct 96 09 Oct 96

  • CP-2-E (KINDAT=6210,6209). The refurbished UHF klystron SN103 had
  • been under test for the preceding several weeks but refused to put out
  • sufficient power levels for experiments. Thus the original SN101 was
  • put back in socket on 7 October. However, the performance of this
  • klystron also left something to be desired, as it tripped if the HV
  • was raised above 83 kV. This corresponds to a peak power of close to1
  • MW. This was thus the nominal value throughout, but even so there
  • were quite a number of trips.
  • The system temperature continued to show steps up and down by about 10
  • K. There was also a period of several hours towards the end of
  • October 11 when the system temperature went up to about 130 K, the
  • cause of which is unknown.
  • The common volume height was reduced to 240 km (from 278 km) at 1224
  • UT on October 11 in an attempt to maximise the snr at the remotes.
  • This height was kept until the end of the experiment.
  • A deep depression with storm force winds crossed northern Scandinavia
  • on October 12, damaging, among other things, the Tromso wind speed
  • monitor. The experiment continued throughout, but data were lost in
  • Kiruna between 1153-1432 UT due to a power break caused by the storm.

  • CP-1-K (KINDAT=6122,6121). This is a replacement for EIS961210A which
  • covers the 9th too. Although no notes were received with this version
  • those of the previous may still apply: The recorded transmitted power
  • levels are unreliable for the first 15 minutes of this operation. There
  • is a gap of about 40 minutes in the Kiruna data just after 08 UT on 11
  • December due to a data recording error (the disk set did not change
  • automatically). The remote site results are rather noisy between
  • 13-17 UT (Dec 10) and 05-08 UT (Dec 11) due to low snr, as well as at
  • other times in the night at Sodankyla.
  • NOT PUBLIC: replaced by EIS961209A
  • CP-1-K (KINDAT=6122,6121). The recorded transmitted power levels are

  • CP-2-E (KINDAT=6110,6209).
  • The common volume height was reduced to 220 km at 1336 UT on 6
  • January and kept there to the end of the experiment. The following
  • significant breaks occurred:
  • 6 Jan 1756 UT new countdown after UPC hanging.
  • 6 Jan 1836 UT new countdown after UPC hanging.
  • 6 Jan 2308 UT new countdown after UPC hanging.
  • 7 Jan 0150 UT crowbar.
  • 8 Jan A few brief breaks due to crowbars and HRPs.
  • 9 Jan 1207-1406 UT: The antenna was lowered to empty it of snow. At
  • the same time, it was noticed that the antenna
  • rails were seriously compacted with snow, resulting
  • in a longer break to clean them. (Heavy snow and
  • strong winds all week.)
  • 10 Jan The real-time analyses showed hard precipitation in the
  • late morning and large convection velocities around midday
  • and into the afternoon. Vector velocities were missing
  • between 22 UT (9 Jan) and 0830 UT (10 Jan) due to a
  • computer problem in Sodankyla that stopped the experiment.
  • These geophysical events were the signature of the coronal mass
  • ejection, that occurred on January 6, reaching the Earth.
  • Sodankyla also suffered a similar loss of data between 0906 UT
  • and 0940 UT on 9 January.
  • NOTE: Vpe error (-1240) and Vpn error (-1250) have unreasonable (negative)

  • CP-2-E (KINDAT=6110,6109).
  • This version of CP-2 used the new selection of frequencies (all
  • +1 MHz) as first employed in the CP-1 in February. The
  • experiment was started at 1048 UT but there were several
  • EROS-related problems and the data were not being recorded to the
  • sparc. Everything was stopped at 12 UT and EROS was exited. The
  • command RT EROSCL was then given before restarting EROS. The
  • experiment was restarted at 1224 UT. The operation suffered from
  • most of the same breaks as the VHF mentioned below, specifically
  • 1725-1740 UT on March 11, then on March 12 at 0405-0416 UT,
  • 0435-0450 UT and 1300-1330 UT. Raw data were not recorded
  • between 0651 UT (after the ND reboot) and 0817 UT when this was
  • noticed. No data were dumped to the sparc between 0312 and 0818
  • UT. Integrated data are available for this period. At 1035 UT a
  • sudden UHF receiver error appeared, which was tracked down to a
  • faulty power supply. It is probable that some of the earlier
  • problems were related to this fault. The system was available
  • again at 1147 UT.
  • Sodankyla had many difficulties and data gaps (including most of
  • the night hours) due to an adc problem that recurred every couple
  • of hours. Kiruna had no problems.
  • The common volume height was set to 220 km. This has been put in
  • the CP-2 experiment files, along with the new field-aligned
  • pointing direction (azimuth 183.0 , elevation 77.1 , for 250 km
  • altitude) and the new frequency settings.
  • The Tromso CP-2 data were analysed with Guisdap in real time, as
  • well as on the ND (CP-4 on the ND too). The CP-2 densities came
  • out about 25% too high in an initial analysis using the same
  • system constant that gave good agreement with the dynasonde in
  • February (1.85). The data were reanalysed using a value of 1.44,
  • producing good agreement.

  • CP-4-B (VHS, KINST=74, KINDAT=6404).
  • CP-4 was tested early on 11 March; no problems were found so it
  • was started (early) at 0905:01 UT. The transmitter tripped at
  • 0927 UT and needed considerable work to get it functioning again.
  • The experiment was restarted at 1215:01 UT. At 1725 UT the
  • transmitter tripped to power-off (maybe due to a brief power
  • break?), enforcing a new countdown and restart at 1750 UT. There
  • were a couple of breaks between 04-05 UT on 12 March related to
  • UHF receiver problems. The final restart was at 0450 UT. At
  • 0537 UT another trip necessitated a new countdown. At 0646 UT
  • the ND computer was rebooted due to problems with data recording;
  • restart at 0651 UT. More data recording problems occurred at
  • about 13 UT, followed by a reboot of the ND computer and
  • successful restart of the experiment at 1330:01 UT. There were
  • also a few brief HV trips at other times during the experiment.

EIS970408A 49 1526 3540 5251072 08 Apr 97 09 Apr 97

  • CP-3-F (KINDAT=6312,6311).
  • CP-3 was initially scheduled to run from 10 UT on 8 April to 16
  • UT on 10 April. The experiment was tested early on 8 April and
  • performed correctly. The run proper was started at 0930 UT, but
  • was immediately beset by problems on the receiver side (at least
  • a loose connector, but maybe also a short-circuit causing current
  • surges in the receiver rack) and with the transmitter (crowbars
  • at low HV). The receiver problem was fixed and the experiment
  • restarted at 1230 UT. The transmitter continued to cause
  • problems and a fault was traced to the HV switch-gear, which was
  • brought into the lab. The alignment of a solenoid was adjusted
  • to clear the problem. No data were saved in this initial period
  • (0930-1500 UT).
  • A new restart occurred at 1500 UT though the HV was low (70 kV).
  • At about 1530 UT it was noticed that the data were not, and had
  • not been for some time, dumped to the ND. This could not be
  • rectified by EROS commands so the experiment was stopped and
  • restarted at 1545 UT (with a requested start time of 1530 UT).
  • This action caused a loop (cycle) time to be added to the
  • requested start time, so the new start became 1600 UT. The
  • transfer to the sparc failed after a few minutes, for no apparent
  • reason. The experiment continued, but it proved impossible to
  • raise the HV above 75 kV without a crowbar; the operating value
  • was often less than this (range 70-75 kV).
  • An attempt was made to get the sparc transfer going again
  • sometime after 20 UT. This was unsuccessful, and NEW-FILE
  • commands had no effect on the data recording to the ND. The
  • expected 30-min file mark at 2030 UT was not written either, so
  • it looked as if we would end up with huge data files as seen
  • earlier (e.g. CP-1, 6-7 Nov 1996). The experiment was stopped
  • and an UNLOAD command issued, but the command stack was by then
  • corrupt and there was no logical response from EROS. It was of
  • course impossible to exit EROS without the UNLOAD command being
  • executed, so the ND was rebooted - twice. The experiment was
  • restarted at 2108 UT (this time the start time of 2100 UT caused
  • a skipping-on action rather than a loop-time added one). The
  • sparc transfer started successfully with the experiment.
  • CP-3 continued through the night of 8-9 April, but still with the
  • HV no higher than 75 kV. The signals from a good number of the
  • lower gates were quite reasonable even with such low power (500
  • kW), but distant gates and the remotes were poor (though Kiruna
  • not too bad under the circumstances). At 0730 UT the experiment
  • was stopped for tests on the transmitter. Using CP-1 as part of
  • these, a HV of 88 kV could be reached.
  • CP-3 was restarted at 0808 UT and continued until 0924 UT (the
  • sparc transfer stopped at 0853 UT for no obvious reason). The
  • transmitter was frequently up and down in this period. The
  • termination at 0924 UT was to allow a further test using CP-1 to
  • see whether a higher HV really could be maintained for a
  • reasonable time (ruling out e.g. a water leak in the klystron as
  • a cause of the CP-3 crowbars). This test was successful with 90
  • kV operation, so CP-3 was restarted at 1030 UT. It was, however,
  • still not possible to raise the klystron above 75 kV so the
  • experiment was terminated at 1354 UT. (The sparc transfer started
  • with the experiment at 1030 UT but stopped at 1048 UT.)

EIS970409A 68 5194 8655 18952192 09 Apr 97 10 Apr 97

  • CP-1-K (KINDAT=6122,6121).
  • A start of CP-1-K was quickly scheduled for 1400 UT in Tromso and
  • Kiruna (the sparc transfer did not start in Tromso). The staff in
  • Sodankyla had by then gone home (filters need changing between
  • CP-3 and CP-1 at remotes). A remote UNLOAD and MOUNT from Tromso
  • to Sodankyla showed no free disk set available. There had been
  • some free earlier, and it turned out that the data on the disk
  • sets flagged as unloaded had actually already been copied. This
  • fault was probably related to the replacement of the ND disk
  • units some days previously. Sodankyla was started correctly at
  • 1500 UT.
  • The CP-1 experiment files at all 3 sites had a common volume of
  • 300 km. This was changed to 250 km (with azimuth 183.0 ,
  • elevation 77.1 ) at 1530 UT and the experiment files updated with
  • these values. The experiment continued without further problems
  • (at ~93 kV) except for a brief break of about 10 minutes
  • following a crowbar at 1720 UT.
  • This was part of a telescience operation aimed at studying the
  • effects of a coronal mass ejection expected at Earth at about
  • midnight UT on 9 April. The original scheduled stop (16 UT, 10
  • April) was extended to 22 UT to take account of these conditions.
  • Horizontal ion velocities in excess of 1 km/sec were seen towards
  • the end of the experiment.
  • The vector velocities from the earlier CP-3 look pretty useless
  • due to the low transmitted power, but those from CP-1 appear
  • excellent (good snr and more-or-less complete time series).

  • CP-2-E (KINDAT=6210,6209).
  • A CP-2-E operation was scheduled from 10 UT on 21 October to 20
  • UT on 23 October (58 hours). This was a World Day interval and
  • part of a longer UARC campaign period.
  • The experiment was tested actively for a good hour on the morning
  • of 21 October with no apparent problems, except that the
  • alternating code signals at the remote sites were being received
  • slightly early. These should be centred in gate 4 (of 7) but
  • were in typically gate 3 in Kiruna and gate 2 in Sodankyla. The
  • signals were re-centred by adjusting the offset ppd from -422 to
  • -432 5s in Kiruna and from -415 to -450 5s in Sodankyla.
  • The experiment started on schedule at all sites. After a while
  • it was realised that the data transfer to the sparc in Tromso was
  • not running (the recording on the ND was OK). After various
  • investigations the transfer was eventually restarted with the
  • usual EROS commands 'SP-TR Y' followed by 'NEW-FILE'. Data recording
  • started at 1046 UT.
  • The 405s power profile data, measured on channels 1 and 2, showed
  • some deviant behaviour. In the south antenna position, and
  • sometimes in the south-east position, the data showed excess
  • noise in the first few gates, though not in every scan. This
  • feature fell off from a maximum in the first gate to
  • approximately normal values by about gate 12. That it
  • constituted a hardware problem, and not e.g. clutter (and
  • certainly not an ionospheric signal) was confirmed by its absence
  • in the 21 5s power profile data. Channels 1 and 2 were
  • alternately attenuated out between 1046 and 1108 UT on 22 October
  • to investigate this problem. Channel 2 turned out to be much the
  • worse, even showing an effect in the B// and vertical positions.
  • But even with channel 2 attenuated out (63 dB), channel 1
  • continued to display similar characteristics to the combined
  • data. The experiment continued from 1108 UT with only channel 1
  • for this power profile. Investigations after the experiment
  • showed the problem to be a power splitter in the receiver rack,
  • affecting both channels 1 and 2, but channel 2 being the worse.
  • The faulty component was replaced.
  • The ND analysis ran smoothly. A comparison of long pulse
  • electron densities with dynasonde (and digisonde) critical
  • frequencies showed the EISCAT densities to be about 15% too low
  • (using a system constant of 1.44 - this was last set in March
  • with a dynasonde calibration). The calibration factor was
  • changed to 1.656 for the final analysis. [Note - klystron SN103R
  • has been in socket since 30 September.]
  • The Kiruna site experienced some software problems during the
  • first night. Raw data was not recorded between 2136 UT on 21
  • October and 0016 UT on 22 October. The experiment was stopped at
  • 0016 UT and restarted at 0030 UT. The integration program on the
  • ND ran throughout, so the only gap in analysed data is from 0016
  • to 0030 UT.
  • No problems reported from Sodankyla.
  • Gaps in Tromso data:
  • 971022 0423-0433 UT emptying snow from dish
  • 0450-0455 UT HV trip
  • 0910-0923 UT UPC problems
  • 971023 0120-0130 UT crowbar
  • Geophysical conditions: pretty quiet - normal daytime ionospheres
  • and a little precipitation each night around magnetic midnight.
  • More activity and some aurora visible through the falling snow on
  • the last evening, just before we closed down.

  • CP-6-B (VHS, KINST=74, KINDAT=6604).
  • A CP-6-B operation was planned from 10 UT on 4 November to 16 UT
  • on 5 November. Good signals (down to 75 km) were observed during
  • tests on the morning of 4 November so the experiment was started
  • early, at 0908 UT. The increased D-region densities turned out
  • to be related to a moderately weak PCA event and the ionisation
  • fell off quite rapidly, having disappeared altogether by about 12
  • UT. (The proton fluxes at geostationary orbit remained enhanced
  • for the whole experiment, but evidently at levels not large
  • enough to give measurable increases in electron density).
  • With CP-6 under way, an attempt was made to start SP-EI-CP6BV-NS
  • (i.e. CP-6 pointing at elevation 75.2 to the north, on the E
  • half of the antenna). The data appeared poor, with many spikes
  • and other noise making the ionospheric signal hard to see.
  • Despite prolonged investigations during the day, the source of
  • the problem could not be located and the UHF side was stopped at
  • 1440 UT. The configuration was then changed from separate, to
  • combined, beams and CP-6 started using the full antenna. (The UHF
  • side would anyway be needed after a few hours for an SP-NO
  • experiment in support of a rocket countdown.) The tests were
  • complicated by many crowbars during this period, a phenomenon
  • that came and went irregularly with no apparent reason.
  • The peak power was recorded and displayed correctly (e.g. by
  • RTGraph) at the beginning of the experiment but became zero after
  • a crowbar around 1030 UT. The peak power for the B-side
  • (position 101 in the parameter block) continued to be recorded so
  • this was used in the data analysis.
  • At 0343 UT on 5 November a crowbar was followed by a problem with
  • the cooling water supply. This took a while to fix and the
  • experiment was eventually back on the air at 0658 UT. The
  • transmitter was turned off at 0758 UT for a final check on the
  • water problem, with a restart at 0840 UT.
  • No raw data could be copied to the 6250 bpi tapes because of a
  • hardware fault with the ND tape drive. At 1059 UT on 5 November
  • the last free disk set was filled and all data recording stopped
  • (even to the sparc). A disk set was re-initialised (all earlier
  • raw data had been recorded on the sparc) and recording restarted
  • at 1122 UT. The tape drive was repaired by a serviceman in the
  • afternoon.

  • CP-2-E (KINDAT=6210,6209).
  • CP-7 (2-klystron) had been scheduled for this World Day interval
  • but a burned cable at the antenna (B-side) was discovered on 1
  • December, probably requiring several weeks to repair. CP-2 was
  • scheduled in its place, to start at 16 UT, or earlier if
  • possible, on 2 December. The experiment was started at 15 UT,
  • though the staff in Sodankyla, who had already left, had not been
  • aware of the change in the schedule and the wrong post-detection
  • filters were in place. The on-duty person was post-detected some
  • 200 km from the site, but after a string of unanswered calls and
  • answering machines speaking Finnish a local willing soul was
  • found and the correct filters put in by 1545 UT.
  • Shortly after the start, the post-integrated long pulse
  • background and calibration spectra in Sodankyla were seen to be
  • asymmetric, with more power on the high frequency (right) side.
  • Inspection of individual 5-sec dumps showed this to be due to
  • typically 1 to 3 individual peaks changing more-or-less randomly
  • in time, frequency and amplitude. This behaviour may have been
  • correlated with the antenna scanning, though the randomness of
  • the variations made this hard to determine. Alternately
  • attenuating out the two long pulse channels (3 and 4, on F9 and
  • F10 respectively) showed F10 to be the main culprit. This
  • feature disappeared after a while, but re-appeared the next day
  • (3 Dec) at about 1240 UT. This time, however, there were no
  • individual peaks in the spectra, just a linear increase of power
  • from the left side to the right side, even at 5-sec resolution.
  • Tests with a frequency analyser in Sodankyla showed that there was
  • wide-band noise (several MHz) above some point between F10 and
  • F11. This interference was strong and caused overflows in the
  • ADC. After various tests lasting about an hour, the experiment
  • continued with only F9 being received. The ionospheric signal
  • was weak or non-existent for most of the experiment at Sodankyla
  • and the data should only be used after careful checks.
  • Subsequent investigations identified the interfering source as a
  • nearby military radio link.
  • In Tromso there was a short gap between 1005 and 1013 UT on 3
  • December following a crowbar. At 1747 UT another crowbar caused
  • the UPC to begin a new countdown. On restart at 1808 UT, a few
  • minutes of data were taken before another crowbar at 1812 UT,
  • after which it was impossible to obtain pulsing from the UPC. A
  • restart was possible at 1954 UT. A further crowbar at 0205 UT (4
  • Dec) necessitated a new countdown, with restart at 0226 UT and
  • experiment end at 0800 UT. The transmitter high voltage was
  • deliberately kept low because of HRPs above about 89 kV. Because
  • of this, together with the low solar zenith angle and only weakly
  • disturbed conditions, the signals in Tromso and Kiruna were also
  • at times poor. A system constant of 1.656 gave good agreement
  • with dynasonde foF2 critical frequencies (same value as in
  • October).

  • CP-7-G (KINDAT=6714).
  • The scheduled start (10 UT) was delayed, initially by tests on
  • the phase matching of the two halves of the VHF transmission
  • lines, then by TX problems that turned out to be due to a loose
  • cable at the UHF end of the cap-bank, causing arcing. The
  • experiment was eventually started at 1330 UT (26 May).
  • CP-7-G-V is experiment SP-EI-CP72-V (or SP-EI-VHF2MS-V using 35.4
  • kHz filters). Recent work on the VHF receiver meant that the
  • configuration needed to be ALLX. Also, the attenuator settings
  • needed revising. The signal path for X was set to 0 dB
  • (previously 12 dB when it was ALLY) and the channels were
  • adjusted by inspection of the oscilloscope signals. Channel 4
  • (actually using channel 3) needed 11 dB, channel 6 needed 5 dB
  • and channel 8 needed 3 dB. Channel 8 seemed noisier than the
  • others so it was connected to channel 1 instead, but there was
  • little obvious improvement. Attenuator settings in the earlier
  • version for channels 4, 6 and 8 were 14, 20 and 20 dB,
  • respectively.
  • There were several gaps due to TX-related problems:
  • 1709-1724 UT (26 May) due to a temperature sensor fault.
  • 1732 to about 1830 UT (26 May) - several major breaks due to crowbars.
  • 2220-2307 UT (26 May) - crowbar caused ND problems.
  • 0251-0304 UT (27 May) - HV trip followed by a crowbar.
  • 1010-1048 UT (27 May) - crowbar caused ND problems (no sparc transfer on
  • restart) so exited EROS, did RT EROSCL and restarted.
  • 2328-0210 UT (28 May) - similar sequence of events - crowbar, ND hanging, no
  • sparc transfer happened about 3 times.
  • Major gap 0130 - 0210 UT. 0210 UT, restarted experiment but fire
  • alarm sounded while attempting to raise HV (which was producing
  • crowbars at the time). The transmitter hall was full of smoke so
  • everything was switched off. The fault was a burned piece of
  • rubber at the VHF end of the cap-bank. The area was cleaned up
  • and the switching arm re-adjusted for smoother operation.
  • The experiment was restarted at 0812 UT (28 May) with RF on at
  • 0820 UT and uneventful continuation until the scheduled stop at
  • 16 UT.

  • CP-4-B (KINDAT 6404)
  • The start was at 10 UT, using a paralleled cap-bank. The cable
  • connections for channels 3 and 4 were initially wrong, rectified
  • at 1035 UT.
  • Long pulse densities from the two beams were rather similar but
  • the B-side/phased/Y beam power profile results were significantly
  • smaller than the latter and the A-side/unphased/X power profile
  • results sometimes larger than the acf densities. Otherwise, no

  • CP-1-K (KINDAT=6121, 6122)
  • The Sodankyla alternating code signal was initially in gate 2 so
  • the offset ppd was shifted from -415 ms to -455ms to centre it in
  • gate 4.
  • Between 0930 and 0959 UT the antennas were directed towards

  • with the MF radar there. The antenna was again field-aligned by
  • 10 UT, where it stayed until the end of the experiment.
  • Calibration of peak F-region densities from the long pulse with
  • local digisonde foF2 values suggested a value of 1.24 for the
  • system constant, which was therefore applied in the data
  • analysis.
  • A power failure in Kiruna caused loss of vector velocities and of
  • recorded raw data between 0320 and 0524 UT on 19 August.
  • However, the ND integration program continued to run and analysed
  • data are available on the tape.

  • CP-2-E (KINDAT=6209, 6210)
  • As the VHF antenna was still phased, CP-6 was a 1-klystron
  • operation using the A-side ('X').
  • The Sodankyla alternating code signal was shifted towards gate 3
  • so the offset ppd was changed from -450 ms to -460 ms to centre
  • it in gate 4.
  • The F-region peak was clearly higher than the common volume at
  • 220 km so this was changed to 278 km at 1824 UT (21 Sept) where
  • it stayed until the end of the experiment (:ELAN files changed
  • also).
  • The system temperature in the south position of CP-2 was
  • systematically higher than the other 3 positions (which were all
  • very similar). It changed slowly and irregularly with time,
  • being typically 10-40K higher, generally lowest at night. The
  • background spectra there showed a DC peak, about 30% higher than
  • the normal spectrum. However, the SE and FA position showed a
  • similar, but smaller peak, with nothing at vertical. The cause
  • of this increase in Tsys is unknown at the time of writing.
  • From about 1300 to 1411 UT (23 Sept) eiscatt was down following a
  • power cycle on one of the tape drives and subsequent difficulties
  • in rebooting. Raw data were not dumped to the sparc for this
  • period but the 1/2" copies of the relevant data sets were made on
  • the ND.
  • Several crowbars occurred, mainly during the first 3 days and
  • mostly on 23 Sept. Sept 24 and 25 were very stable,
  • transmitter-wise.
  • Geophysical conditions were relatively disturbed. In particular,
  • on the final day (25 Sept) large electric fields were observed
  • and the experiment was extended beyond the scheduled stop time,
  • eventually terminating at 18 UT.

  • CP-6-B (KINDAT=6604)
  • On VHF, the peak power reading (on RTG and from integration
  • program) was zero. This was corrected at 1248 UT (21 Sept) by
  • switching the 'A' and 'B' peak power input cables to the camac
  • adc.
  • On the VHF side, the ND started producing data files without
  • 30-min e-o-f marks after a crowbar at 1926 UT (22 Sept). This
  • could have been noticed by checking the V-EROS console, or by
  • noting that the 'RESTART' displayed by PR-EXP was not correct
  • (should be the start of the next do-loop). The problem was
  • because AUXRUN had stopped and was remedied by issuing the RT
  • AUXRUN command. This was rectified at 0633 UT (23 Sept).
  • Several crowbars occurred, mainly during the first 3 days and
  • mostly on 23 Sept. Sept 24 and 25 were very stable,

  • Both klystrons were used with a paralleled capacitor bank during

  • when the transmitter hall began to fill with smoke following a

  • The only technical problem during this operation was a faulty LO2

  • indicate how long this had persisted. At 2040 UT the LO2 from

  • CP-4-B (KINDAT=6404)
  • The received signals showed intermittent, irregular behaviour
  • during this run, with the most serious effects in the unphased
  • beam (B-side, Y channel). The problem appeared as unstable gain
  • as a function of receiver open time. When the background gates
  • were subtracted the �signal� at the shorter ranges was sometimes
  • too large, or sometimes too small. Further investigation of this
  • effect was prevented when the ND computer suffered a disk crash
  • (pack-three) at 0230 UT on 13 January, causing the experiment to
  • be terminated.

  • CP-1-K (KINDAT=6121, 6122)
  • Tromso ran fairly smoothly during this experiment, with just a few crowbars
  • causing gaps of a few minutes, notably at:
  • 2328 UT, 9 Feb
  • 2008 UT, 10 Feb
  • 1143 UT, 11 Feb
  • 2000 UT, 11 Feb
  • 0616 UT, 12 Feb
  • 1513 UT, 12 Feb
  • The remote sites suffered some problems that affected the data.
  • At Kiruna, the LO1 lost the lock to its reference at about 0014
  • UT on 11 February and continued in this state until 0750 UT. The
  • effect of this was to introduce a Doppler shift to the signal
  • which looked like about 1 km/sec in terms of ion velocity.
  • Although the offset was relatively constant, it is not possible
  • to say whether it was exactly constant (in which case simple
  • subtraction could be used to obtain the ionospheric velocities).
  • Rather, the evidence suggests that the frequency may have had
  • some inherent variability in this state and the data should only
  • be used with great care. The same problem recurred between about
  • 2000-2035 UT, again between 2200-2230 UT on 11 February, and also
  • between 0400-0746 UT on 12 February.
  • Strong interference signals were observed in the measured spectra
  • at Kiruna during the last hour of the experiment. These were
  • apparently not stationary as some residual effect could be seen
  • in the signal-minus-background spectra and the results are not
  • very reliable.
  • The Sodankyla correlator reported an error condition quite often
  • throughout this experiment. A recover-correlator command was
  • usually sufficient to rectify this, although there were sometimes
  • longer periods when it went unnoticed (night time). The effect
  • seemed to be the same each time, producing two points with
  • erroneous large values in the alternating code part of the data
  • dump. The alternating code signal and all of the long pulse part
  • of the dump seemed to be unaffected and can probably be used with
  • confidence.
  • NOTE: Vpe error (-1240) and Vpn error (-1250) have unreasonable (negative)
  • values: 15-20 UT Feb 9, 17-19 UT Feb 10, 1-7 UT 12 Feb.

  • running simultaneously a program of 1-sec on followed by 9-sec
  • off at both 4.04 MHz and 5.423 MHz.
  • The Kiruna antenna developed an elevation motor fault on the
  • evening of 8 March and the data-taking was stopped there at 1730
  • UT. At 0740 UT the next morning the antenna was steered into the
  • Tromso field-aligned position so that at least some data could be

  • resumed at 1450 UT on 10 March, although there are a couple of
  • short gaps in the subsequent two hours when adjustments were
  • made.
  • On 12 March a crowbar at 1201 UT was followed by problems with

IST990209A 1 55 6613 1097728 1999 0209 2002 0612

  • Compilation of experiments available (Oct 2002) from
  • http://62.76.21.18/cdi-bin/madrigal/madInvent.cgi
  • Antenna always points to zenith; resolution: 50 km ht, 20 min time; hts
  • typically 300-650; basic ACF data (KINDAT=9801); higher resolution data
  • available on request.
  • JRO General Notes
  • Incoherent Scatter Radar operating since 1964 near the geomagnetic equator
  • in Peru. Data for 1964-1966 are printed plots only; digital data retained
  • here start November 1966.
  • DATA SOURCE CHRONOLOGY:
  • 1966-1969 (KINDAT=30003) from the World Data Center
  • 1984-1995 Vi (KINDAT=1040,1050,1051) from Wes Swartz (Cornell)
  • 1984 Jun Ne (KINDAT=1101) from Joe Pingree (Cornell)
  • 1994- Vi (KINDAT=1910,1911) from Kudecki (U of IL) and Chau (JRO)
  • 1996- Ne, Te, Ti, Ni (KINDAT=1800,1801,1802) from Hysell (Cornell)
  • LATE 1990s EQUIPMENT CHANGES:
  • During the mid-1990s numerous flaws caused by corrosion were repaired in
  • the antenna array. Faraday rotation experiments restarted October 1996
  • after also subtracting experimental biases introduced by polarization
  • crosstalk, imperfect quadrature detection, and other subtle effects.
  • In late 1997 the computer was replaced allowing increasing the number of
  • lags and using a full-time duty cycle. A dual-pulse scheme commenced
  • November 2000 which reduces clutter.
  • KINDAT=1800:
  • Single pulse Faraday rotation experiments from October 1996 to October 1999
  • measure Ne, Te, Ti (not drifts). An estimate of the absolute electron
  • density is derived from the measured polarization of the scattered signal.
  • This estimate is used to normalize the total scattered power so as to yield
  • a robust estimate of the electron density at altitudes between approximately
  • 100-1000 km. The autocorrelation function of the scattered signal is also
  • measured. Ne is now reported "uncorrected"; akin to return power, this
  • magnifies the corrupting coherent echos induced by the electrojet at low
  • heights or spread-F in the F-region, thus making it easier to spot the
  • affected altitudes. A correction formula is provided in the header.
  • KINDAT=1801:
  • This dual pulse scheme was upgraded by adding randomized alternating codes
  • starting November 2000. Strong clutter can enter through sidelobes in the
  • antenna pattern introduced by plasma irregularities in the equatorial
  • electrojet but clutter is reduced when using a double-pulse pattern and
  • the ACF is assembled one lag at a time. However, the accumulation of lag
  • product estimates takes place relatively slowly and the statistical
  • uncertainty of the ACF measurements is somewhat high for the integration
  • times applied here. It is therefore often impractical to fit the ACFs for
  • more than two parameters simultaneously. Between 0600-2000 LT, Te and Tr are
  • the fit parameters. Outside of this daytime window, the Te and Ti are
  • assumed to be equal and the parameters fit are T=Te=Ti and H+ concentration.
  • KINDAT=1802:
  • Starting in April 2004, an uncoded long pulse was added to the dual pulse
  • scheme with alternating codes (KINDAT=1801). Long pulse returns are
  • fitted for temperature and composition at high altitudes starting at 450km.
  • KINDAT=1910:
  • Ion drifts for all altitudes (<100km to ~1000km). These data can include
  • low altitudes with insignificant electron number density. Below 200 km,
  • the returns are a combination of different coherent echoes:
  • 1) Below 60 km, mountains, atmospheric echoes and the transmitter self
  • (ground) clutter.
  • 2) Around 100 km, meteors, electrojet irregularities
  • 3) Around 150 km, the so-called 150 km echoes.
  • In summary, incoherent scatter information is only valid above 200 km.
  • Note also, starting June 2004 the sampling range changes from 15km to 12km.
  • KINDAT=1911:
  • Ht. averaged ion drifts for the F-region with spread-F removed.

  • These are meridional neutral winds data. They were prepared by SRI for Ray
  • Roble and Barb Emery (Jun 87); SRI refers to this as a WINDPORT tape. No
  • header record was provided but a number of noteworthy remarks were in the
  • cover letter accompanying the tape:
  • (1) Vector velocities were derived from line of sight observations, also
  • calculated were average density and temperature profiles.
  • (2) Transmitter chirp correction to the Vlos data were made in consultation
  • with Millstone Hill personnel.
  • (3) The uncertainties for Vlos data were carried throughout the calculation
  • (4) No uncertainties were used for the densities, temperatures and their
  • derivatives.
  • (5) MSIS 83 neutral densities were also used to calculate neutral winds.
  • (6) In calculating the winds, the Schunk and Walker (1973) O+O-collision
  • frequency was multiplied by 1.7.
  • (7) About using the data (by Vince Wickwar): Data he has presented were
  • smoothed by 1-hr running averages. Sometimes there was also averaging
  • over a limited altitude region. Although the meridional wind was
  • calculated to high altitudes, values are dubious above about 350 km.
  • In general the data are valid between the lowest altitude with good
  • signal to noise ratio and about 400 km. Above 400 km the radar data
  • may be contaminated by hydrogen, the SNR is low, and the correction
  • for ion-neutral collision frequencies is enormous. When using the
  • meridional winds, values are dropped when uncertainties exceed
  • 100 m/s at Millstone Hill.

    • SON General Notes
  • May 1990: Carol Leger's letter categorizes the many record types:
  • (1) Basic parameters:
  • (A) Elevation scan data - program ACPORT or ACPORTS
  • ---- KINDAT ----
  • 5150, 5151, 5152 Density profiles
  • 5171 Temperatures from OAC spectral channel
  • 5174 Spline coeficients (ignore this)
  • (B) Fixed position data - program ACPORT or ACPORTF
  • (Fixed position is a generic term for anything that is not a scan
  • of some type.)
  • 5100, 5101, 5102 Density profiles
  • 5121 Temperatures from OAC spectral channel
  • 5124 Spline coefficients (ignore this)
  • (2) Derived parameters:
  • (A) 11-position type data - program PECPORT
  • 15021 Resolved velocities
  • (B) 3-position data - program VPORT
  • (The records for basic params in item 1B may be repeated in VPORT.)
  • 5103 Density profiles
  • 15013 Resolved velocities from OAC
  • 15014 Resolved velocities from MAC
  • (C) 3-position data - program PECPORT
  • ([They] usually process 3-position data as in 2B, but it is possible
  • to use PECPORT instead. If [we] get any of these data, please
  • inform Odile de la Beaujardiere.)
  • A more extensive record type summary is in file ~bozo/is/docs/inst.notes/son
  • CONFIDENCE INTERVALS
  • Starting with 1994 data, experiments are usually provided with 1-sigma
  • (68% confidence interval) error bars. Prior submissions were 3-sigma
  • (99% confidence interval); the tradeoff is noise for time or height resolution.
  • LONG PULSE AND ALTERNATING CODE (SHORT PULSE) (Aug 1994, Jan 2004):
  • Long radar pulses (10s of km) are used for optimum return signal from the
  • F-region but they smear over significant vertical changes in the E-region,
  • so short pulses and phase encoding (alternating code) are also used. Analyses
  • differ to account for composition and collision frequency so separate files
  • are produced; for short pulse analyses, reference is made to SRI's designation
  • '-a16' or '-dt1'. Long pulse analyses are usually available although not
  • always identified as such. Short pulse is less common and always identified
  • here; they are increasingly common depending on season and solar cycle. When
  • both are available the same KINDAT is used for certain record types (e.g.
  • ACPORT power profiles with KINDAT=9001 and PECPORT resolved ion velocities with
  • KINDAT=15011); such ambiguities may always be resolved by inspecting the pulse
  • length (parameter code 402).
  • ALTERNATING CODE ANALYSES FOR JAN 1990 - JUL 1991 (Feb 2002):
  • It has been reported that E-region heights can be off for alternating code
  • (A16) analyses. SRI's reply is: It effects only the short pulse (M4, M5
  • and A16) data from January 1990 thru July 2001. The A16 data after July
  • 2001 have this 3km correction. We are upgrading our fitter program to
  • improve the way it handles the alternating code data, which should give a
  • noticable improvement to the fitted A16 data. When that is ready, we will
  • reprocess all the shortpulse data and submit them to the CDB. In the
  • meantime, the existing files are okay to use, just not as accurate as the
  • new ones will be.
  • COMPOSITE SCANS AND VEL2CMPBIN � VR AND E VS. LATITUDE (Sep 2002):
  • The following description applies to the Wide Latitude Study (WLS) campaigns
  • and the velbinport output; see also the "Derivation of Conductivity" in the
  • ISR data description at http://isr.sri.com
  • A composite scan involves moving the antenna simultaneously in azimuth and
  • elevation in order to sample convection consistently over many degrees of
  • latitude. A comp-scan samples a plane parallel to the magnetic meridian
  • but offset to the east or west and tilted off zenith (most commonly 25
  • deg). The angular change rate may vary so that ground tracking is
  • constant, moving slower at lower elevation angles and faster near
  • overhead. The azimuthal coverage may alternate between east and west of
  • the site while traveing in the same (northward or southward) direction.
  • For instance, the first scan may be the east comp-scan, from southeast to
  • northeast, and the second scan would be the west comp-scan, from the
  • southwest to the northwest. Then the cycle repeats east comp-scan would
  • be repeated, followed by the west comp-scan, etc. The scan duration is
  • normally four minutes, but that may vary with the experiment purpose and
  • ionospheric conditions. The movement time between scans is less than one
  • minute.
  • Using the program VEL2CMPBIN, the data are ordered in such a way as to
  • combine the Vi's from one comp-scan with the Vi's from the same altitudes
  • and latitudes from the opposite comp-scan. That is, the first
  • line-of-sight record from the first east scan is paired with the first
  • line-of-sight record from the first west scan. Each pair of data gates at
  • the same altitude is combined to form the resolved velocity (using some
  • assumptions, which are addressed below). Then the second line-of-sight
  • records from each of the two scans are used, then the third, as so on
  • until the last records from each scan are combined. As each pair of
  • records is combined, they may produce values that overlap in latitude with
  • values from other pairs of records � as the data gates increase in
  • range, they also increase in altitude and distance from the radar site.
  • Each pair of records may cover some degrees of latitude, particularly at
  • the extremes of the scans.
  • After the data gates are paired from the matching line-of-sight records
  • from this very first pair of comp-scans (east and west), the first
  • comp-scan is discarded and the second comp-scan is then paired with the
  • third comp-scan. The third comp-scan is then paired with the fourth
  • comp-scan, etc. Each pair of line-of-sight records results in one output
  • record that has:
  • - the mid-time between the begin time of the record from the first
  • comp-scan and the end time of the record from the second comp-scan
  • (approximately 5 minutes for our nominal case), and
  • - the altitudes, latitudes and values of the east and north components
  • of the resolved velocities.
  • To accommodate real-time viewing of the data from this mode, the resolved
  • velocities from each pair of comp-scans are binned in 1/4-deg latitude bins
  • and averaged and computed as velocity magnitude and direction.
  • With this technique, we assume:
  • - V-parallel is zero,
  • - longitudinal homogeneity, and
  • - temporal stability on the order of some minutes.
  • Obviously, if there are longitudinal differences in the plasma flow
  • (for instance, due to a shear reversal that is not parallel to the L
  • shell) or a temporal change from one scan to the next (as would happen
  • with a substorm onset), then the validity of this technique is
  • compromised. With good F-region signal, this mode can provide
  • convection measurements covering as much as 13 degrees of latitude.
  • Record types (KINDAT=) 15610 and 15630 are analyses of comp-scans.
  • KINDAT=15610 has the data parameters from each gate of each pair of
  • line-of-sight records used to resolve the ion velocity. Each pair of
  • records used is at a different look angle and consequently spans a
  • different amount of invariant latitude. Many differents pairs of records
  • may have meaurements over the similar invariant latitudes, as we consider
  • gates above 180km altitude to be a valid and representative measurement of
  • the F-region velocity.
  • KINDAT=15630 has the data parameters from each of the line-of-sight pairs
  • (used in kindat=15610) binned into 0.25 deg latitude. Values between 180
  • km and 700 km altitude are used in the binning, and the contribution of
  • each is weighted by SNR.
  • E-REGION NEUTRAL WINDS ANALYSES (May 2003):
  • There are two versions some campaigns: Johnson/Azeem (KINDAT=30024 in SON870921B)
  • and SRI's CWINDS with 4 KINDATS:
  • 15115 neutral dynamics from combined pulses (92-196 km) E Nn Tex Tn Vi Vn
  • 15116 electrodynamics from combined pulses (92-196 km) Cond E J Ne Nn Tex Tn Vi Vn
  • 15413 resolved velocity from longpulse (93-1029km) E Ne Te Ti Vi
  • 15414 resolved velocity from alternating code (92-555 km) Te Ti Vi
  • REPORTED MINIMUM ALTITUDES (Oct 2003):
  • The initial range gate may start below significant electron concentrations
  • for some combinations of antenna elevation and pulse length: The minimum
  • altitude can be less than 50km with a low elevation angle, a (48km) long
  • pulse and initial range gate starting at 60-75km; such data are intended
  • primarily for the F-region and merely qualitative assessment of E region
  • range gates; e.g., is there an aurora?. The shorter pulse (alternating code)
  • results have better height resolution for the E-region.

  • These are meridional neutral winds data. They were prepared by SRI for Ray
  • Roble and Barb Emery (Jun 87); SRI refers to this as a WINDPORT tape. No
  • header record was provided but a number of noteworthy remarks were in the
  • cover letter accompanying the tape:
  • (1) Vector velocities were derived from line of sight observations, also
  • calculated were average density and temperature profiles.
  • (2) No transmitter chirp correction is necessary for Sondrestrom data.
  • (3) The uncertainties for Vlos data were carried throughout the calculation
  • (4) No uncertainties were used for the densities, temperatures and their
  • derivatives.
  • (5) MSIS 83 neutral densities were also used to calculate neutral winds.
  • (6) In calculating the winds, the Schunk and Walker (1973) O+O-collision
  • frequency was multiplied by 1.7.
  • (7) About using the data (by Vince Wickwar): Data he has presented were
  • smoothed by 1-hr running averages. Sometimes there was also averaging
  • over a limited altitude region. Although the meridional wind was
  • calculated to high altitudes, values are dubious above about 350 km.
  • In general the data are valid between the lowest altitude with good
  • signal to noise ratio and about 400 km. Above 400 km the radar data
  • may be contaminated by hydrogen, the SNR is low, and the correction
  • for ion-neutral collision frequencies is enormous. When using the
  • meridional winds, values are dropped when uncertainties exceed
  • 150 m/s at Sondrestrom.

  • In the absense of header records, KINDAT definitions were provided

  • In the meantime, kindats in the 5500s are for basic parameters such
  • as Ne, Te, Ti and Vi that have been obtained by fitting for various
  • parameters. The last two digits indicate the antenna mode:
  • 01 = dwells
  • 02 = azimuth scans
  • 03 = elevation scans, constant scan rate
  • 04 = composite scans, constant scan rate
  • 05 = elevation scans, variable scan rate
  • 06 = composite scans, variable scan rate
  • I used the 9000s for unofficial basic parameters. One the tape you
  • received, this code was used for the raw densities. In the pre-MUSCOX
  • days, we did not send the raw densities. I was not sure if we really
  • wanted to send them or not. I'll check on that. I should change the
  • code to something in the 5000s, if we want it available to others.
  • It won't hurt if a few people get the data while it still has the 9000
  • code, but they should contact someone here at SRI for an explanation.

  • STS General Notes
  • St Santin IS RADAR operated from 1966 to 1987. It was a bistatic system
  • through 1973 with transmitter at St. Santin and receiver at Nancay
  • (KINST=41), thus providing measurement of electron density, electron and
  • ion temperature, neutral-ion collision frequency, composition ratios and
  • ion drift quasi-parallel to the magnetic field line. In 1974 tristatic
  • measurments commenced with addition of the Mende receiver (KINST=42) and
  • Monpazier receiver (KINST=43) for full ion drift vector determination.

EHP781102A 1 609 9608 13975552 1978 1102 2008 0522

  • Estimated cross hemispheric power from NOAA/TIROS satellites from Dave Evans.
  • KINDAT (31021) replaces all data using new parameters to delineate electron
  • and positive ions, adding data after 25 May 2003.
  • 2007 Oct: added inflight Hpt estimates for N12 and N14 from 05165-06277

EHP781102B 1 542 21110 12759040 1978 1102 2007 0924

  • Estimated hourly composite (kindat=31201) electron and ion hemispheric power from intersatellite
  • adjusted values from the NOAA and DMSP satellites as corrected by Barbara Emery and Weibin Xu.
  • Previous (June 2005) kindat=31200 only included hourly composite electron hemispheric power

EHP781102C 1 1245 10550 27930624 1978 1102 2007 0924

  • (kindat=31100) Estimated hemispheric power after intersatellite adjustments
  • to the NOAA and DMSP satellites as corrected by Barbara Emery and Weibin Xu
  • for the electron (from electron or total) and ion (SEM-2 NOAA only) Hp.

EHP830101A 1 465 9215 10858496 1983 0101 2008 0522

  • Estimated hemispheric power from DMSP satellites prepared by Fred Rich.
  • KINDAT=31012.
  • May 2002: add new data, extending to 28 May 2002. Although this
  • involved replacing data starting in 2001, a comparison revealed only
  • a few differences in the least significant digit (probably due to
  • rounding).
  • Feb 2003: 1999 data were replaced and new data added for 29 May 2002
  • to 23 Jan 2003. CKINDAT text updated.
  • Nov 2003: Added satellite F11 to 1992 data; i.e. replaced 1992 data.
  • Jun 2005: Complete DMSP replacement of data from 1983 on to correct for:
  • 1) Sensor degradations for F08-15
  • 2) Re-calibrations for F11-15
  • 3) Remove whole pass in NH if Thule cut-outs poleward of 50 magN
  • (This affected F10, F11, and F12 by cutting 23-52% of points)
  • (NOTE: F12 NH gone 95115-95228 and 96116-96226 because of sunlight
  • on photodiode that turned off the high voltage)
  • 4) sunlight removal for F16 (actually high MEV particles removed)
  • May 2006: Complete replacement of F16; revised F13,14,15 2003-2006
  • Jun 2006: Revise F14-15 2001-2004 (more pts F1401,02 F1501,04; smaller Hp F1403,04 F1502,03)

  • A special sounding mode was used which gives high resolution on the
  • magnetic meridian (beam 8); the beam sequence is: 0,8,1,2,8,3,8,4,8,5,8
  • etc. The high time resolution is useful for studying transients which
  • are found to be associated with large scale convection pattern changes.
  • There are a few examples of interference (disturbing transmitter) which
  • affect every range gate; these are recognizable by negative SNR of -6dB
  • (parameter code 412).

  • TIR General Notes.
  • Geographic wind components are determined by sampling of radar echoes from
  • three spaced receivers and the full correlation analysis of Briggs (1984)
  • for computing the horizontal velocities. As the irregularity patch moves
  • across each of the three receivers, it produces a diffraction pattern on
  • the ground. The time shifts between each pair of the receivers will yield
  • an 'apparent' velocity. Briggs' method of FCA (MAP Handbook Vol 13) takes
  • into account the random changes within the pattern as well as any preferred
  • orientation of the pattern thus yielding a 'true' velocity of the movement.
  • A triangular arrangement of the receivers permits a decomposition of the
  • resultant velocities into north-south and east-west 'wind' speeds.
  • This method differs from the Doppler beam swinging technique whose wind
  • analysis may presume that the vertical velocity is zero.

* SECTION: PASSIVE OPTICAL (FABRY-PEROT, MICHELSON INTERFEROMETERS, SPECTROMETERS)

  • Fabry-Perot Interferometers observe night time airglow and deduce neutral
  • wind, temperature, and emissivity. The observation altitude is implicit
  • in the data and depends on the emission line obvserved:
  • red line OI 630.0nm 275 km +/-100,
  • green line OI 557.7nm 97 km +/-15,
  • infra-red [OH] 892 nm 87 km +/-2.
  • Auroral conditions influence altitudes, decreasing red line and increasing
  • green line. Other wavelengths are observed such as 840.0 nm hydroxyl
  • Meinel band. Older instruments are often red-line; some observe multiple
  • wavelengths.
  • IR Michelson interferometers measure the hydroxyl nightglow which is
  • centered at 86-89 km. Radiance and rotational temperature are
  • measured from which neutral temperature is inferred.
  • AAF General Notes
  • Red-line observations 1986-1987 with 1 Fabry Perot Spectrometer at Ann Arbor, Michigan.
  • The instrument was taken from Fritz Peak, Colorado (FPF) where it operated from 1972-1985.

  • AFP General Notes
  • Red-line observations with a Fabry Perot Interferometer at Arecibo Puerto
  • Rico.
  • AFP early 1988 has 2 different versions, one submitted in 1991, and the
  • other in 1999. There are 22 overlapping nights in January, March and July
  • 1988, of which 17 have identical winds and other parameters, but different
  • background radiances. The new background radiances are approximately half
  • the old background radiances, but the reason for the change is not clear.
  • (Background radiance is only important if it varies a lot, indicating
  • cloudy periods, which should have mostly been removed, anyway.) Five of
  • the 22 overlapping nights contain different values of Code 4050, the
  • assumption used to determine the zero reference in the analysis. When just
  • the zenith observations were used as a zero reference in the analysis, Code
  • 4050 = 1, while for others, all of the measurements for a given night were
  • used (Code 4050 = 0). The older submissions assumed Code 4050=1 (kindat=
  • 17001), while the newer submissions assumed Code 4050=0 (kindat=17010).
  • The corresponding winds are somewhat different. Finally, one of the 22
  • overlapping nights had a slightly different velocities because the free
  • spectral range (Code 4051) was 600 instead of 590. In general, use the
  • more recent submissions (kindats 17010 and 17011).

* SECTION: MISCELLANEOUS

/ISRADAR/PGMS/ARO/Tepley.src

  • Arecibo (Craig Tepley) provided source code which processes raw ACF and power
  • channel data and converts to the I.S. binary format. COS blocked 3 files.

/ISRADAR/PGMS/Chiu.IRI /ISRADAR/PGMS/Chiu.IRI.cofcnts

  • The Chiu and IRI models. The IRI model is Version 9, Aug 86; The IRI needs a
  • coefficients file as "/ISRADAR/PGMS/Chiu.IRI.cofcnts". Files are COS blocked.

/ISRADAR/PGMS/efield

  • Art Richmonds electric field model subroutine (Richmond et al. JGR 1980
  • P. 4658). COS blocked ASCII.

/ISRADAR/PGMS/MSIS

  • The MSIS model (version 1983 or 1986). (COS blocked).

/ISRADAR/PGMS/SRI/subs /ISRADAR/PGMS/SRI/spline

  • Some Fortran subroutines used by the SRI database software package.
  • "subs" has 15 files (4013 recs), including PLOTQ, VECTOR, WHEN, WHERE.
  • "spline" has 4 files: source, example input, terminal output and print
  • output. Both are COS blocked ASCII.

/ISRADAR/PGMS/USUmodel/craybin.tar /ISRADAR/PGMS/USUmodel/ascii.tar

  • The parameterized high-latitude USU model (as provided by Lincoln Brown
  • of Computational Physics) is available in two forms both are unix tar of
  • the 655 files comprising source code (*.f), documentation files (read.me
  • and order.lst) and coefficients files ($[NS]H* for ascii or [NS]H* for
  • binary version). The coeffieients files in "craybin.tar" are Cray binary
  • version made from "ascii.tar"; the other difference between "craybin.tar"
  • (20 MB) and "ascii.tar" (35 MB) is additional remarks in "read.me" regarding
  • installation from tape. These are NOT COS blocked files.

/ISRADAR/PGMS/readtp.vms

  • The Vax/VMS version of readtp; COS blocked 5 files (1779, 1454, 28, 29
  • and 114 lines long). File one contains the fortran source routines and the
  • remaining four files are supporting VMS macros. (RDBLK5 version).
