First tristatic studies of mesoscale ion-neutral dynamics and energetics in the high-latitude upper atmosphere using collocated FPIs and EISCAT radar

Abstract

[1] A unique experiment was undertaken during the nights of 27 and 28 February 2003. Tristatic Fabry-Perot Interferometer (FPI) measurements of the upper thermosphere were co-located with tristatic EISCAT radar measurements of the ionosphere. Tristatic measurements should remove assumptions of uniform wind fields and ion drifts, and zero vertical winds. The… (More)
