EISCAT Scientific Association is a non-profit scientific organisation that operate four radar antenna sites to enable research on the ionosphere and the upper atmosphere.

Our radars are all located above the Arctic Circle and all radar sites work together, which give scientist an unique research opportunity. EISCAT radars have been used for different types of studies and different phenomenas, for example Space WeatherSpace Debris and the Aurora. You can find more information in the publications.
