Incoherent Scatter Radar School, with a very modern Airbus A330, it was interesting to see how far the in-flight map displays have come. No more boring blue screens with information about temperature etc. Instead 3D moving map displays. The first photo above shows the entire route heading WNW out of Helsinki via Sundsvall, Trondheim, Northern Iceland, Southern Greenland, and into New York. It's especially nice to see the Finnish EISCAT site marked on the map: Sodankylä!
first Joint US-EISCAT Incoherent Scatter Radar School in 2011, which took place in Kangerlussuaq, which is the settlement and airport nearby the radar facility.
