The adaptation of Imaging Doppler Interferometry (IDI) to the dynasonddee ployeadt the BearL akeO bservatory( 4 1.9øN,1 11.4øWi)n northeasterUnt ah enables the routine measurement of mesospheric dynamics. Influencedb y the directiono f the prevailingw ind, a clear seasonalv ariation is seeni n the mesospherice chon umbers. The techniquea lsop rovidesa monitorf or the amplitudeo f the main tidal modes as well as for studying planetary waves with periodso f severadl ays.T he observationasr e foundt o be consistent with those from different instruments based at the sames ite thus confirmingt he IDI characterisationo f the mesospheric wind field.
