Abstract:

Several methods of measuring and analyzing Doppler shifts produced by moving meteor trails from which windspeeds at E-region heights can be deduced are presented. Emphasis is placed on obtaining the data in such a way that they can be reduced easily and quickly so that measurements can be made and evaluated on a routine basis. Using one of the described systems, several thousand data points were obtained during an 18-day period their evaluation led to results very similar to ones obtained elsewhere. Author
