Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: Incoherent Scattering Radar can detect electron density, electron temperature, ion temperature, plasma line-of-sight velocity and many other parameters, which is the most powerful ground-based tools to monitor ionosphere. It is of great significance to studying the ionospheric space weather characteristics and models. This dataset includes two types of data, power profile and power spectrum during 2015 and 2017 years. The former can be used to give a rough estimation on the electron density profile and the latter can be used to derive multiple parameters, such as electron density, electron/ion temperature and so on. The dataset can be used to analyze the spatial and temporal variation characteristics of ionospheric parameters over Qujing area(25.60oN,103.82oE), and support the ionospheric model research.
