Abstract

The MAXIDUSTY campaign comprised two rocket payloads,
launched from Andöya Space Center (69° 17 N
16° 01 E) on June 30 and July 8 2016, and simultaneous
radar and lidar observations of the mesosphere with focus
on the altitude region between 80 and 90 km. The sounding
rocket payloads were equipped with several different
types of dust instruments, including impact detectors,
Faraday bucket detectors, a neutral mass spectrometer,
electron density probes and a photometer. The first payload,
MXD-1, was launched during PMSE and NLC conditions,
and the MAARSY radar provided VHF measurements
coincident with the rocket flight path. The ALOMAR
RMR lidar provided NLC measurements during the
first flight. The second payload was launched during similar
conditions, but without lidar measurements. In this
work, we present an overview of the MAXIDUSTY campaign
with some general results. Some preliminary key
results include a thorough analysis of the Faraday impact
probe MUDD, which shows that it is possible to use the
size distribution of fragments of colliding mesospheric
ice particles as a proxy for the size distribution of meteoric
smoke particles. Results from analysis of MUDD
data also confirms that the volume filling factor of meteoric
material inside mesospheric ice particles can be several
percent.
