22 - ARE - Arecibo P.R. ISR velocity vector
Instrument Type: Instrument > Radar > IncoherentScatterRadar
Observatory: None
Observation Site: None
Operating Mode:

Instrument Page: ARE

The velocity vector can be determined from data from at least 2 directions from the Arecibo ISR. The CEDAR DB does not distinguish this derived, higher-level data in kinst=20 (aro), but the madrigal DB uses kinst=22 in directories /aro/ with file prefix are, which duplicates the AMIE prefix (kinst=311, are). The madrigal kinst=20 is only the lower-level line-feed data in directories /arl/ with file prefixes aro.
