GeoScience Data Journal Publishes Data Paper

GeoScience Data Journal

GeoScience Data Journal has recently published their first open access data paper online. The article, The GBS dataset: measurements of satellite site diversity at 20.7 GHz in the UK explains the focus of the experiment, utilizing the GBS (Global Broadcast Service) dataset  “to make long term measurements of the signal strength received from a 20.7 GHz beacon on the US Department of Defense satellite UFO-9 at multiple sites, in order to determine whether the use of site diversity as a fade mitigation technique would be effective.” Datasets from the three sites in the UK: Chilbolton and Sparsholt, both in southern UK, and Dundee in Scotland span a period of three years, from August 2003 to August 2006, are accessible within the article.
