In January, 2014, the IARPA High Frequency Geolocation program ran a week long experiment with high frequency (HF) instruments densely deployed over White Sands, New Mexico. The experiment yielded several observations of large-scale and medium-scale traveling ionospheric disturbances (TIDs) with high spatial and temporal density. We present initial observations of the mid-latitude TIDs to help understand their spatial and temporal properties better.
