Science Tuesday: Recent Papers

Tuesday is the science day on the EISCAT_3D blog. For the science feature, you can submit your research to the blog with an image, photo, or graph, and a short text explaining the study and the key result. We will then publish your work here. For the time being, please send any input to the blog's editor Thomas Ulich (thu -at- sgo -dot- fi). Thanks!

Visit to KAIRA

This past week, the Executive Board of the 7th Framework preparatory phase project EISCAT_3D visited the KAIRA site at Kilpisjärvi, Finland. KAIRA is the Kilpisjärvi Atmospheric Imaging Receiver Array, which was built by the colleagues from the Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory for prototyping EISCAT_3D receiver technology. The site is now in operation, and the first results are very impressive, which you probably know already from the KAIRA blog.

On Wednesday, the weather was just fantastic, and we took the panoramic photo above. It was done by putting a time-lapse camera on a rotating mount on a tripod (you can see the shadow in the image!), taking a photo every second. For this image, one image per 30° rotation was selected, the centre slices cut out, and stitched together to get the full 360° image. Enjoy.

With this nice photo (click to enlarge), we wish all of you a great - and hopefully sunny - weekend!
