The CEDAR data base


  • R. Sica


The Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR) program is an international cooperative effort within the aeronomy community to further our understanding of Earth's upper atmosphere [Romick et al., 1987]. This program will be high-lighted by numerous multi-instrument measurement campaigns, and global simulations of the magnetosphere-ionosphere-atmosphere system. The results obtained from these studies promise a great leap forward in our understanding of the physics and chemistry of the atmosphere. To achieve these results, however, will require the ability to access large amounts of data from many different instruments and models.
