Supporting Stations: Palmer Station
Research Locations: Terra Lab
This Palmer Station research project is a collaboration with Australian scientists who have Fabry-Perot interferometer (FPI) instruments at the Australian Mawson and Davis Stations to jointly analyze the neutral wind and temperature data to address the following issues: (1) Thermospheric neutral wind effect on the Weddell Sea Anomaly; (2) Lower thermosphere wind effect on shuttle plume drift; (3) Non-migrating tides in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere; and (4) Geomagnetic effect on the thermospheric wind.
Field Season Overview:
Two field team members will service the instrument at Palmer Station each year. The Palmer Station site is part of a larger project that includes FPI instruments at Mawson and Davis Stations operated by the Australian Antarctic program.
