ISR School: Off to Boston!

It's time again for the 2013 ISR School of our US colleagues including the AMISR community. The radar school will begin with an informal get-together with some pizzas etc on the evening of Sunday, 28th July, and the actual school programme is scheduled to begin on Monday morning, 29th July.

Previously, the ISR School took place at MIT Haystack, near Boston (2010), Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, together with EISCAT (2011), and in Banff, Canada (2012). This year, we are at MIT Haystack Observatory again. Time to get going then, since it's a long way from Sodankylä to Chelmsford, where everyone will be staying.

The in-flight map had some great features of alternative displays and constant information about speed, altitude and temperature. When I took this photo, we were heading out towards the Irish Sea, leaving UK airspace after starting from Heathrow. Still a long way to go.

Somewhere south of Iceland, above the Atlantic Ocean, there we encountered some rather impressive cloud formations.

We shall update you on the progress of the radar school throughout the coming week, and at the same time re-launch the blog after the holiday period. So, stay tuned to updates and photos.

EISCAT Symposium: The 2013 EISCAT International Symposium will begin in only two week's time, and we've just been informed that the first draft programme is now on-line for download. So check out their web site!
