Altitude calibration of the Tromsø medium frequency radar
ForfatterHall, Chris; Husøy, Bjørn Ove
Although the Tromsø Medium Frequency Radar situated at Ramfjordmoen, Norway (69°N, 19°E) has been operating for over a quarter of a century, no definitive altitude calibration has ever been documented using independent measurements of the same atmosphere. Here we perform calibrations using the recently installed (November 2003) Nippon/Norway Tromsø Meteor Radar by identifying wind features in the same volume. We also perform an independent check using oscilloscope measurements supplemented by an acoustic delay line.
