Description

Since February 1999, the Utah State University Bear Lake Observatory (41.9oN, 111.4oW) dynasonde has been configured to operate as an Imaging Doppler Interferometer (IDI). Imaging Doppler interferometry is one of a number of MF/HF radar techniques used to estimate mesospheric winds and dynamics. This paper presents results of the mesospheric (50 – 115 km) background wind, tides, and planetary waves as derived from analysis of IDI observations recorded between February 03, 1999 and February 21, 2000 at Bear Lake.
