Description

This data set includes measurement data of meteor trail echoes from the Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory SKiYMET radar. "ME20181213_0010.zip" File contains the raw data from confirmed trail echoes and each belong to a specific row of the summary output "mp20181213_sodankyla.mpd" file. The zip file also contains a PDF that describes the data. The analys results are also avalible in "ANALYSIS.zip". In this file there is a "README.txt" file that describes the data.
