Abstract
This paper describes a long term, high-resolution study of the activityof the Perseid meteor stream based on visual and radar observations atthe Onsala Space Observatory in Sweden. The data consists of 147 visualhourly rates and 1368 radar hourly rates. In a previous paper (Lindblad2000) a high-resolution study of the visual zenithal hourly rates ofbright Perseid meteors versus solar longitude was described. The studyrevealed that the Perseid activity curve has a multipeak structure. Apreliminary analysis of 1368 mid-August radar hourly rates obtained in1953-75 is presented. The activity curve of the Perseid meteor streambased on radar data indicates a similar multipeak structure of thePerseid meteor stream.
