The department of Physics and Technology at the University of Tromsø is proud to invite our friends and colleagues to the 14th international EISCAT Workshop. The conference will be held at Rica Ishavshotell in Tromsø, Norway, from the 3rd to the 7th of August, 2009.
The EISCAT radars, constructed for investigation and research on the aurora, upper atmosphere, ionosphere, magnetosphere and the solar wind, are situated in Northern Scandinavia and on Svalbard (http://www.eiscat.se/). Over the years, these incoherent scatter radars have proven to be an instrumental cornerstone in ground-based, high-latitude space research. Space weather and the issue of climate change have become increasingly important for society and the EISCAT community has provided the possibility to use EISCAT data in such studies by operating the EISCAT Svalbard Radar continuously for several months during the International Polar Year.
Abstracts are solicited from themes including the middle atmosphere, auroral phenomena, ionosphere and thermosphere, solar wind and magnetosphere, structure and dynamics of the polar cap and cusp, meteors, and ionospheric heating. We also welcome abstracts on space weather, space debris and results from multi-instrumental campaigns, including rockets and satellites. There will also be sessions on new and future developments, including new radar plans and techniques (e.g. EISCAT_3D, AMISR and the new Antarctic radar). Oral or poster contributions are welcome.
