The 8th EISCAT_3D User Meeting: Uppsala, 18-19 May 2016

May 21, 2016

imageThe 8th user meeting for the EISCAT_3D project took place in Uppsala, Sweden, on May 18-19, 2016.

As usual, the meeting provided a forum for interested scientists who may or may not be directly involved in the design and construction of the EISCAT_3D project, and also for persons working more with its administrative, logistic, and technical aspects. The workshop venue was at Ångströmlaboratoriet of Uppsala University.
