The 2014 incoherent scatter radar summer school was held at the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico, from July 21 to July 26. The school provided students with hands-on experience in designing and running experiments at incoherent scatter radar facilities.
A meeting took place at Space Campus, Kiruna, on 5 November with EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase participants working on technical aspects of the radar system.
This meeting was motivated by the fact that since with less than one year remaining of the Preparatory Phase, it's time to make sure that the different Work Packages finishes on schedule. In addition, feedback from some major funding applications was expected shortly and, assuming positive outcome, there would be little time to get a fully production-ready design of the system.
On 22 - 23 October a discussion meeting was held in Kiruna, Sweden, with representatives from European Space Agency, EISCAT Scientific Association and several Swedish organisations. The main topic of the discussions was the ESA SSA programme and activities in relation to the requirements from Swedish organisations.
The first half of the meeting contained presentations about the ESA SSA programme and the Swedish organisations present at the meeting:
The biennial EISCAT international symposium 2013 was held at Lancaster University, UK, on 12-16 August 2013.
The EISCAT International Symposium is a scientific meeting for all those interested in atmospheric, ionospheric, near-Earth space environment and interplanetary scintillations research using incoherent scatter radar as well as technical developments of the technique.
The 5th EISCAT_3D User Meeting took place in Uppsala, Sweden, on May 6-8, 2013.
