Abstract : A radar investigation of possible sources of auroral infrasonic waves (AIW) has disclosed evidence of a relation between AIW sources and radar aurora in supersonic motion. The study employed pre-existing and specially obtained data from the DASA-SRI auroral radar located near Homer, Alaska. Data from the Homer radar were compared with AIW data obtained during five equinoctial periods at the infrasonics observatory operated by the Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska at College, Alaska.
