Mesospheric wind velocity data (30min. mean) observed with MF radar at Poker Flat, Alaska

Murayama Yasuhiro
Horizontal wind velocity in the altitude range of approx. 60-90 km is observed with Poker Flat MF (medium frequency) radar, using the radar wave at 2.43 MHz. The radar receives weak radio echo signals returned from the weakly ionized atmosphere (ionospheric D-region) at the target altitudes, to deduce horizontal air motions (Murayama, Y., K. Igarashi, D.

Here, the authors describe the construction of a forcing dataset for Land Surface Models (including both physical and biogeochemical models; LSMs) with eight meteorological variables for the 35 year period from 1979 to 2013. The dataset is intended for use in a model intercomparison (MIP) study, called GTMIP, which is a part of the Japanese-funded Arctic Climate Change research project. In order to prepare a set of site-fitted forcing data for LSMs with realistic yet...
