We have studied some characteristics of clear air echoes in the lower stratosphere and troposphere from simultaneous observations of vertical echo power and temperature profiles. The vertical echo power has been oversampled every 75 m with a height resolution of 150 m by the middle and upper atmosphere (MU) radar (35øN, 136øE). During the radar observations a radiosonde was launched at the MU radar site in order to measure temperature, humidity, and pressure with a height resolution of a few… CONTINUE READING
