Visit the Sodankylä EISCAT Site!

Tomorrow, Saturday, 14th September 2013, the Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory invites everyone to visit its Tähtelä site in Sodankylä in order to see its facilities. This Open Doors' Day is part of the events leading up to next week's celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the observatory, which was established in September 1913. More information about all celebrations is available here.

The Sodankylä EISCAT site is a well-known landmark in the region, which can be seen from many elevations in the vicinity, like the Luosto ski centre. Naturally the EISCAT site will be part of the day's activities and there's the chance to visit the site tomorrow.

Additionally, there will be several themed lectures during the day. One of them, at 11.30 a.m. will be dedicated to EISCAT and EISCAT_3D. All lectures will be held in the main lecture hall of the Polaria main building, Tähteläntie 62.
