High Precision Radar Measurement of Meteoroid Speeds

Supervisor: Dr. Peter Brown

Project Description (Abstract):

This project involves application of the Fresnel Transform technique for measuring meteoroid velocities using radar data. The student will compare speeds measured using the FT with other techniques to define its accuracy. In particular, data from well-know meteor showers will be examined to provide a validation of the technique. Ability to use IDL and C an asset and familiarity with the unix operating environment helpful.
