Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: Ionosonde is one of the most conventional ground-based ionospheric observation instruments. A DPS4D digital ionosonde was setup at the Mohe station of Institute of Geology and Geophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences under the support of the Meridian Project. The Mohe DPS4D ionosonde is the northernmost ionosonde operated in China. It plays an important role in the observation and study of regional ionospheric characteristics and propagation of ionospheric disturbances. This dataset contains the raw ionogram data and auto-scaled ionospheric characteristics data in the whole year of 2014. This raw data in this dataset is accurate, reliable, and continuous, which can support the study of ionospheric weather and climatology.
