Abstract

Ground‐based observations of Doppler line profiles from the F‐Region O+(²P) state, made with the Fabry‐Perot interferometer (FPI) at Søndre Strømfjord, Greenland have been analyzed to provide measurements of the ion convection velocity and ion temperature. The FPI line‐of‐sight (LOS) ion drift and temperature measurements have been compared with simultaneous incoherent scatter radar (ISR) measurements; the results from the two techniques are in good agreement.
