EISCAT -3D User
EISCAT-3D is a planned next
generation incoherent scatter radar facility,
based on phased-array
technology and multiple radar sites. The EISCAT_3D
proposal was accepted on the ESFRI Roadmap
of large-scale European research infrastructures in December 2008.
Currently the EU, EISCAT, the Rutherford-Appleton
the University of
(Norway), the Luleå
and the Swedish
Institute of Space Physics (Sweden) are financing and
undertaking the EISCAT-3D design study.
A user meeting will take place May 28-29 in Uppsala, Sweden, in order
to present the results of the Design Study to EISCAT users. We will
also discuss the science applications of EISCAT-3D as well as the next
steps in the project.
This is the meeting's
The workshop will have the Beurlingsroom on
the ground floor of the
of the Uppsala University
plus, if needed,
smaller meeting rooms for splinter sessions.
A detailed preliminary
programme is here. Please
