Scientific Event C0.3 - "New Generation Middle and Upper Atmosphere Radars: Applications and Development"
Scientific organisers are Esa Turunen, Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory, Finland, and Mamoru Yamamoto, Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere of Kyoto University, Japan, and the organising committee further includes Anja Strømme, SRI International, USA, and Craig Heinselman, EISCAT Scientific Association, Sweden.
Recent advance in radar technology has allowed deployment of modern phased-array atmospheric and ionospheric radar facilities such as the MAARSY radar in Norway and PANSY in Antarctic. Currently new atmospheric and ionospheric radar proposals appear at several continents simultaneously and phased-array incoherent scatter radars such as EISCAT_3D and AMISR in Antarctic and Ethiopia are being prepared for financing. Several existing radar facilities are expected to be or were lately upgraded for new capabilities. This session is directed to develop synergies between the user groups of these and other radars which study the middle and upper atmosphere and ionosphere. Reports on recent science achievements as well as technological development of the radar capabilities across disciplines are envisaged. Implementations of new measurement methods and multi-instrumental data interpretations are also encouraged.
Deadline of abstract submission: 14th February 2014.
