EISCAT_3D Science Case Update: June 2012

Version 2 (June 2012) of the EISCAT_3D Science Case has been published and is available on the EISCAT_3D project web site from today. This is the second annual update of the science case and includes contributions from the current members of the Science Working Group (Work Package 3) which, over the past year, has focused on examining the potential uses of EISCAT_3D in the areas of space weather and space debris.

The Science Working Group convenors, Anita Aikio and Ian McCrea, would like to express their gratitude to this year’s working group members:
  • Lucilla Alfonsi (INGV, Rome, Italy),
  • Hervé Lamy (Royal Observatory of Belgium, Brussels, Belgium),
  • Frédéric Pitout (Univ. Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France),
  • Iwona Stanislawska (Space Research Centre, Warsaw, Poland), and
  • Juha Vierinen (Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory, Finland).
We would also like to thank a number of other international colleagues who have contributed ideas or material for our discussions, without taking part in the meetings. Particular thanks go to Lucilla Alfonsi and to Stephan Buchert (Uppsala University, Sweden) for hosting the meetings of the working group during the past year.
