Subject: CEDAR email: Incoherent Scatter Session at EGU 2010 From: Michael Rietveld <> Date: Thu, 14 Jan 2010 21:02:39 GMT To:

The deadline for abstracts for the session "Highlights of recent ionospheric and auroral research by incoherent scatter radars" (EGU session ST3.3) at the European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly, to be held in Vienna, Austria, from 02 to 07 May 2010, closes on Monday, 18 January!!!.

Remind your colleagues and students to present those exciting or unexplainable results for which we need the next generation of radars.

Session description:

Incoherent scatter radar probing of the upper atmosphere is going through a major resurgence with several new generation radars being built and planned. The new generation radars will have radically improved spatial and temporal resolution and will provide volumetric imaging of our near-Earth environment.

In the European sector, the EISCAT incoherent scatter radars and ionospheric heating facility are used for fundamental research of the upper atmosphere, ionosphere and magnetosphere at auroral and polar cap latitudes. Papers will describe highlights from the present radar systems, especially those that emphasize questions to be addressed by the new facilities in the future.

Michael Rietveld (Convener) Co-Conveners: Ingemar Häggström and Sixto Gonzales
