EISCAT_3D is a project led by EISCAT Scientific Association.
EISCAT_3D is a three-dimensional imaging radar to be located in the northernmost parts of Europe. It will be making continuous measurements of the geospace environment and its coupling to the Earth's atmosphere from its location in the auroral zone at the southern edge of the northern polar vortex.

EISCAT_3D receives funding from Norway

The Research Council of Norway has decided to grant 288 MNOK for the construction and operation of a new radar system in northern Scandinavia, including a new antenna site in Skibotn, Norway. This antenna will be a part of the ESFRI-project EISCAT_3D, a large European research infrastructure for studies of the upper atmosphere above the northern hemisphere. The Norwegian activities in the EISCAT_3D project are coordinated by UiT, the Arctic University of Norway.

17th EISCAT International Symposium

The 17th EISCAT Symposium and 42nd Atmospheric Studies by Optical Methods (42AM) symposia will be hosted by the South African National Space Agency on 14-18 September 2015 in Hermanus, South Africa. The meetings are planned to run in parallel, with some common sessions and shared activities.

Further information will appear at
in due course.
