The 9th EISCAT_3D User Meeting: Uppsala, 8-9 May 2018

The EISCAT_3D (E3D) project has now been officially started with an opening event on 7 September, 2017. The 9th EISCAT_3D User Meeting took place in Uppsala, Sweden, on May 8-9, 2018. 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 E3D project, and also for persons working more with its administrative, logistic, and technical aspects.

The programme included presentations covering a wide variety of topic. These are listed here, and some of themare available for download by clicking the title:
