FPI Palmer

The following data pertains to the collected mesospheric and thermospheric wind data from HAO FPI Doppler remote sensing of nightglow emissions of OH (892 nm at 87 km) and O (557.7 nm at 97 km and 630 nm at 250km) at Palmer Station, Antarctica. The goal is to study the upper atmosphere and ionosphere over the Antarctica Peninsula.

The Palmer project is supported by a National Science Foundation Grant OPP 0839119, which is an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) project.

Logistical support is provided by the US Antarctic Program (USAP).

The instrument is constructed by National Center for Atmospheric Research, High Altitude Observatory Instrumentation Group. NCAR is supported by the National Science Foundation.

Palmer station supporting crew and then contactor Raytheon designed and built a separate room in the Terralab at Palmer station to house the Fabry-Perot interferometer.

The instrument is maintained by Palmer station research associates.
