Title: Measurements of hf auroral clutter using the verona ava linear array radar (VALAR). Report for June 1990-June 1991

Abstract

Measurements of high frequency (HF) auroral clutter using the Verona Ava Linear Array Radar (VALAR) system are presented. VALAR is an experimental HF backscatter system capable of obtaining high resolution synoptic mapping of HF auroral clutter. The receive system includes a 700 meter long linear array. providing the high azimuthal resolution required for determining the spatial distribution of HF auroral clutter. Since the completion of the system at the end of 1989, data acquisition campaigns have been carried out on a near-monthly basis. In this report, the authors provide a brief description of VALAR and present preliminary measurements of three types of phenomena: ground backscatter, slant-F, and auroral backscatter.
