GLOBAL IONOSPHERE RADIO OBSERVATORY

with Real-Time & Retrospective HF Ionospheric Sounding Data from Lowell DIDBase

DRIFT EXPLORER

  • Drift Explorer is the main software tool for working with GIRO ionospheric drift data using DDA technique
  • Drift-X has capability of accessing drift data records, including raw receive channel data and derived data (skymaps, ionospheric tilt, velocity time series) from 39 locations in the Lowell DriftBase (via TCP/IP port 3050)
  • 7+ million raw drift data measurements
  • 5+ million Doppler skymaps
  • 5+ million drift velocity records
  • Web Portal access for¬†image browsing http://ulcar.uml.edu/DriftBase

Common Drift Explorer Data Visualizations and Tools:

Interactive skymap browser

Skymap Survey

  • Separate panels for drift in E and F regions of the ionosphere
  • Detail-on-demand window for extended data display at the crosshair pointer position
  • Display of frequency and height intervals where the raw drift data were acquired for velocity calculations
