ISR Summer School underway in Banff, Canada

This morning, the Incoherent Scatter Radar (ISR) Summer School, organised by the University of Calgary and sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) began in Banff, Canada. The school, which has attracted a record 37 students from all over the world, takes place in stunning scenery and everyone's enjoying fantastic summer weather.

The photo shows the conference centre on the right, in which the school takes place. It is taken from the balcony of the restaurant, in which breakfast was served this morning.

By the way, if you are interested in learning the technique of incoherent scatter radars, there's another radar school this year, which still has some places left, the EISCAT Radar School.
