International EISCAT Radar School

14 August, 2023 - 19 August, 2023

Kilpisjärvi, Finland and Skibotn, Norway

The International EISCAT Radar School is a training course for new users of incoherent scatter radars at any stage of their research career. Participants should have a background in space physics, ionospheric pysics, plasma physics, or radar (radio science). The school will cover all essential aspects of the current incoherent scatter radar systems, including the science programme. An overview of the existing hardware and software was provided and future plans will be discussed, with an emphasis on phased array radars in preparation of EISCAT_3D.

The course will have a very strong emphasis on practicals, i.e. work in groups of participants on real data. There will be dedicated radar experiments for every group, and the groups will analyse their data and present their results under the guidance of an experienced team of instructors.

The radar school is organised by the Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory, the Space Physics and Astronomy Research Group (both University of Oulu), the EISCAT Scientific Association, and the Arctic University of Norway.

The radar school is part of the University of Arctic Thematic Network Arctic Space Hub.
