Mesospheric velocities with API

One advantage of the API method is that it allows high resolution vertical velocities to be measured between 50-120 km. Here is an example plot from our 9.12.2011 measurement. Around noon (7000 seconds in to the measurement) there are also some tropospheric echos.

Vertical velocities in the 60-120 km region measured using the API method with the EISCAT heater.
