Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: The meteor radar at Mohe station (53.5°N, 122.3°E) is an all-sky interferometry radar with wide beam. It can detect meteor trails left by meteoroids when entering and ablating in the Earth atmosphere at altitudes between 70 km and 110 km. The dataset from Mohe meteor radar in 2018 consists of radar observation data and radar analyzed data. Radar observation data includes range, angle of arrival, radial velocity, signal power, decay time, diffusion coefficient of meteor trails, etc. Radar analyzed data refers to the atmospheric wind field data obtained by analyzing and processing radar observation data. The dataset from Mohe meteor radar can be used for studies on atmosphere dynamics in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere (MLT) region and the coupling between atmosphere and ionosphere.
