An initial study of fast-moving radar auroras has been completed, using data from the 398-MHz phased-array radar located at Homer, Alaska. The phased array scans the ionosphere over most of central Alaska with a two-degree beam on a time scale of seconds, producing digital data that can be manipulated into many formats for analysis. Complementary data magnetograms from several Alaskan and one Canadian observatory and incoherent-scatter data from Chatanika, Alaska also were employed for relating the radar-auroral data to substorm activity.
