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.

The All-hands meetings are gatherings where all project personnel are able to present the status of their work. At the same time the participants also get an overview of the status and advance in the whole project.

EISCAT Scientific Association is looking for a Project Engineer

EISCAT Scientific Association is seeking a Project Engineer for the ongoing EISCAT_3D phased array radar project. The project is currently in its Preparatory Phase, funded by the European Commission through their Seventh Framework Programme, which will continue until 2014. The Preparatory Phase involves the legal, governance, strategic, financial and technical work that is needed before the construction of the new radar system can commence.

First version of the EISCAT_3D Science Case released

The EU FP7 EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase project Work Package 3 “Science Planning and User Engagement” has prepared and released the first version of the Science Case document at the end of June, 2011. The document sets out the scientific case for the construction of a new research infrastructure for studies of the upper atmosphere and near-Earth space, to be based in northern Scandinavia.

EISCAT_3D featured in International Innovation Environment Magazine

The EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase project is featured in the June 2011 issue of International Innovation Environment Magazine. In the article, Esa Turunen and Jonny Johansson describe the project and its impact for near-Earth environmental science.
