EISCAT_3D and social networking

In our efforts of building a vibrant, international EISCAT and EISCAT_3D user community, and in order to reach out to users preferring other means of rapid communication than e-mail, we have recently taken social networking tools into use to promote EISCAT_3D, spread EISCAT-related news, and create a number of forums for discussion and outreach.

These tools are a blog, a Twitter feed and a Facebook page.

International Incoherent Scatter Radar Workshop 2011

The International Incoherent Scatter Radar Workshop was held in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, 18-23 July 2011.

The workshop, aimed at providing participants with hands-on experience in designing and running incoherent scatter radar (ISR) experiments, was held near the Sondrestrom Research Facility, and was a collaboration between the annual AMISR summer school (the fourth of its kind) and the EISCAT radar school.
