Specular Meteor Radar Observations of the Semidiurnal Tide in Northern Scandinavia and Northern Germany

The dataset contains specular meteor radar observations of the atmospheric semidiurnal tide in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere. The observations are from specular meteor radars located in Northern Scandinavia (Andenes, Kiruna, and Tromso) and Northern Germany (Collm and Juliusruh). The radar observations in Northern Scandinavia cover the years 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2019. Observations in Northern Germany cover the years 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2019. These data are in support of the publication "Migrating Semidiurnal Tide during the September Equinox Transition in the Northern Hemisphere."
