Starting with the reception this evening, we have the EISCAT International Symposium 2013, which is being held in Lancaster, United Kingdom (although after yesterday's post we'll need to double check that!). The EISCAT Scientific Association is an international research organisation operating three incoherent scatter radar systems, at 931 MHz, 224 MHz and 500 MHz, in Northern Scandinavia. It is funded and operated by research councils of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Japan, China and the United Kingdom — collectively, the EISCAT Associates. The EISCAT Associates organise a biennial scientific symposium and this year's is being held in the UK at Lancaster University.
There are three presentations about KAIRA...
- Scintillation with EISCAT, KAIRA, and LOFAR: New perspectives on the ionosphere and interplanetary medium, Fallows, Bisi, Hardwick, McKay-Bukowski, Vierinen, McCrea and Dorrian
- KAIRA receiver as a multi-frequency riometer, Kero, McKay-Bukowski, Solonen, Enell and Vierinen
- KAIRA — New science, new users, McKay-Bukowski, Vierinen, Kero, Fallows, Virtanen, Ulich, Orispää, Wucknitz, Postila and Lehtinen
... and one special presentation:
However, there will be lots of talks related to the fields of research that KAIRA is used to investigate and an excellent selection of astrophysical and geophysical results. In additional to our regular articles, we will be reporting on this important meeting during the week and posting about it via Twitter (@KairaProject)
