Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: One of SuperDARN (Super Dual Auroral Radar Network) HF radar, located at Chinese Antarctic Zhongshan station, was built successfully in April 2010 and routinely operated. ZHO radar is the only HF radar running in Anarctica for Chinese science community, which could play crucial role in measuring ionospheric plasma convection by using radar line-of-sight Doppler velocity. The dataset includes those data acquired in 2012, which comprises of radar rawacf, fitacf files and processed Range-Time-Intensity (RTI) plot. By using this dataset, researchers could carry out investigations in polar magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling, high-latitude ionospheric convection, plasma irregularities and magnetospheric substorm studies.
Keywords: coherent scatter radar; polar ionosphere;  ionospheric convection;  ionospheric plasma irregularity
