Simultaneously, incoherent scatter radar and optical instruments at the Sondrestrom facility will view the same aurora. Overlapping fields from these two sites will provide a database for two-dimensional measurement and tomographic description of auroral arcs in the magnetic meridian.

EISCAT (European Incoherent Scatter) installations are large radar systems located in northern Scandinavia. They are used for geophysical research by researchers from many countries, and are useful for a number of purposes related to space research, climate research and monitoring of “space weather”. There is now an urgent need to upgrade the. Propose New Project. As a research infrastructure, VISIONAIR is a set of scientific resources available for research activities. Do you want to propose your project in order to use the VISIONAIR infrastructure? The procurement of inputs under the current proposal will be taken under FAO rules and regulations. The local produced seeds will be procured locally. In additional, other inputs such as fertilizers and animal feed could benefit from international tendering with more improved flexible procedures of purchasing based on economies of scales.   European Incoherent Scatter Scientific Association‎ High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program‎ Skywave‎ (1 C, 5 F) Sondrestrom Upper Atmospheric Research Facility‎ (5 F) Sura Ionospheric Heating Facility‎ (1 F) Media in category "Ionosphere" The following 90 files are in this category, out of 90 total.

This facility includes two independent radar systems. One is a tristatic system operating at UHF ( MHz), while the other is a monostatic system operating at VHF ( MHz). The two transmitters are located near Tromso, Norway.

Hultqvist gave the system the later Proposal for a European incoherent scatter facility in the auroral zone book name “Eu-ropean Incoherent Scatter Facility (EISCAT)”.

The report, containing 11 reference reports, was finalized next month at Titisee; because its green covers it received later the name “Green Book”.

Japan joined the European Incoherent Scatter (EISCAT) Scientific Association, which operates three incoherent scatter (IS) radars in northern Scandinavia, to enhance polar region observations in [Röttger et al., ; Matuura et al., ].

The electron density profiles were obtained using the Incoherent Scatter Radar located at Chatanika, 30 miles north of Fairbanks, Alaska. This facility has a north latitude of 65° 06' (geographic) and 64° 55' (geomagnetic) with a geomagnetic declination of 29° east, inclination of °, and an L value of ; a description has been given.

It is an explicit goal of ESFRI to support international research infrastructures located in Europe and EISCAT_3D is a leading example.

incoherent scatter radar is provided in Appendix A2. C Ground-based high-resolution optics (winter time only) In winter, auroral emissions can also be observed from the ground with high temporal and spatial resolution, when the Sun is at least ° below the horizon.

New-moon periods are best, as moonlight may compromise optical data. ERDF and Cohesion Funds – Proposal for a Regulation COM() and annexes.

29 May English. The ionosphere (/ aɪ ˈ ɒ n ə ˌ s f ɪər /) is the ionized part of Earth's upper atmosphere, from about 60 km (37 mi) to 1, km ( mi) altitude, a region that includes the thermosphere and parts of the mesosphere and ionosphere is ionized by solar radiation.

It plays an important role in atmospheric electricity and forms the inner edge of the magnetosphere.

Swarm is an European Space Agency minisatellite constellation mission, successfully launched on Novemwhich carries in situ electron and ion density and temperature probes. 4 It was said by a workshop participant to be ideally suited for comparison to incoherent scatter observations, lending small-scale in situ observations to.

The report also examines research opportunities that might arise from the relocation of the AMISR incoherent scatter radar from the Poker Flat Research Facility in Poker Flat, AK to Gakona, AK, the location of the HAARP facility. Both of these employ active and passive radio instrumentation similar to that being built at HAARP.

Magnetometers monitor the auroral zone as well as the equatorial region. Two types of radar, coherent scatter and incoherent scatter, are used to probe the auroral ionosphere. By bouncing signals off ionospheric irregularities, which move with the field lines, one can trace their motion and infer magnetospheric convection.

2 A similar facility exists in Russia known as the Sura Ionospheric Heating Facility, located in Vasilsursk. Alaska has another one near Fairbanks known as the High Power Auroral Stimulation (HIPAS). A facility called the European Incoherent Scatter Radar (EISCAT) exists near Tromso in Norway.

On 2 Maythe European Commission adopted its proposals for a new Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for Under these proposals, the Connecting Europe Facility programme will have a budget ofover this period.

This impact assessment report reflects the decisions of the MFF proposals and focuses on. EISCAT (European Incoherent SCATter) facility is co-jointly operated by geophysical research councils in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Japan, France, the United Kingdom and Germany.

Their primary focus is using a radar scatter device to map the auroral region, but they do have an ionospheric heater to assist the radar.

It is shown that it. â HAARPâ is the abbreviation for â High-frequency Active Auroral Research Projectâ. The name of this American project camouflages the fact that it has the potential for being a greater catastrophe for mankind than the creation of the atomic bomb. The truth of the matter is that the HAARP installation can be used to wage a science-fiction-type battle.
