Call for Papers: High-Latitude Geospace Environment

Paper submissions are invited for a special issue of Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics (JASTP), highlighting the recent advance in geospace environment studies by incoherent scatter radars at high-latitudes. In addition to the papers presented at the 15th EISCAT International Workshop in Qingdao, China,  on 5-9 September 2011, submissions would be expected from authors, who work with the PFISR, RISR, Millstone Hill, Stromfjord, Arecibo, Kharkov and Irkutsk radars, as relevant to the thematic special issue. Combining other instruments with the IS radars in order to gain new insights is encouraged. As some recent results by low-latitude radars relate to high-latitude phenomena, contributions which study of coupling through the atmospheric regions may also be possible.

The submission website for the journal is located at:

To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for the special issue, it is important that authors select Special Issue: 15th EISCAT, when they reach the "Article Type" step in the submission process.

Guest Editors are Dr Esa Turunen, EISCAT Sweden; Prof. Ruiyuan Liu, PRIC China; and Prof. Jian Wu, CRIRP China.
