Tools and Models:CSU Lidar Nightly Av Tn
CSU Lidar Nightly Average Tn
Chiao-Yao (Joe) She and David Krueger of the Colorado State University (CSU) have compiled nightly average temperatures from the sodium lidar between 70-119 km every 0.5km using hourly data from 3.7 km bins from March 1990 to March 2010, the lifetime of the sodium lidar at CSU. The files were created for the Network Detection of Mesopause Change (NDMC) at http://wdc.dlr.de/ndmc/. There are three text files below.
CSU Lidar Nightly Average Tn Lists
These lists were created in December 2010 by Joe She.
- Nightly average Tn
- Nightly average error bar for Tn
- Nightly average Tn minus the effects of the volcano Pinatubo
Acknowledgements: The Colorado State University sodium lidar is operated by the Colorado State University with support from the National Science Foundation. It is designated as a Ground Based Instrument (GBI) for the TIMED satellite mission, and so has additional support from CEDAR/TIMED NSF and NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) funding.
