The high frequency coherent scattering radar is used to monitor the inhomogeneous body and its motion in the polar ionosphere. The main detection parameters include radar echo intensity, ionospheric convection velocity and velocity spectrum broadening. The data storage format is binary and needs special software processing. This data set is the high frequency coherent radar data of Zhongshan Station in Antarctica in 2011. High frequency coherent scattering radar is an important equipment for monitoring the polar ionospheric convection at Zhongshan station, Antarctica. Taking advantage of the high geomagnetic latitude of Zhongshan station, it covers a gap of the international SuperDARN (super twin auroral radar network) in the Antarctic optical belt, which will expand the observation range of the polar ionosphere in China from the polar gap region to a larger range, so that China can play a role in the polar ionospheric convection observation Important role.
