Röttger, J., T. Rietveld, C. LaHoz, T.M. Hall, M.C. Kelley, and W.E. Swartz, 1990: Polar mesospheric echoes observed with the EISCAT 933 MHz radar and the CUPRI 46.9 MHz radar. Radio Sci., 25, 671-687, doi:10.1029/RS025i004p00671.

The relation of the coherent echoes from the mesosphere detected by an incoherent scatter UHF radar to the echoes registered simultaneously with a portable radar interferometer is analyzed. It is demonstrated that these 933-MHz echoes are of the same character as the VHF radar polar mesosphere summer echoes. It is also noted that a narrow electron density observed in the incoherent scatter UHF radar data occurs at the comparable altitude as the portable radar interferometer polar mesosphere summer echoes (PMSE). Potential origins of the scattering process of the PMSEs observed in VHF and UHF are discussed, with focus placed on enhanced electron density fluctuations as well as steep electron density gradients in the presence of cluster ions in the cold polar mesosphere.
