Dear Colleagues

We would like to encourage all members of the solar-terrestrial physics community to contribute a presentation to our session G05: Coordinated Studies with Multiple Incoherent Scatter Radars at the upcoming URSI General Assembly, which will be held in Istanbul, Turkey from August 13th to 20th. A detailed description of the session can be found below, and more details are on the conference web site at http://www.ursigass2011.org/.

This session would provide an excellent platform to present results from previous multi-radar experiments, or to discuss future plans for the better co-ordination of existing and future facilities, including long-period co-ordinations similar to the International Polar Year, and the future of the World Day programme.

Please note that the URSI paper submission deadline has now been extended to February 26th. Submissions must consist of an abstract (maximum one hundred words). You may also choose to submit a summary of up to four pages in length, including figures and references, plus a copyright release form that is needed for the publication of presented papers on IEEE Xplore, but the summary is not a requirement for this session.

Hoping to see you in Istanbul,


Anja Strømme and Ian McCrea



G05: Coordinated Studies with Multiple Incoherent Scatter Radars

Wednesday 17 Aug 2011, AM, 7 slots

Converners: Ian McCrea (ian.mccrea@stfc.ac.uk) and Anja Strømme (anja.strome@sri.com)

The international network of incoherent scatter radars is well-established and growing, with the US AMISR systems now producing world-leading science and new radars being developed for operation in Northern Europe, Canada and Antarctica, among other locations. In recent years, the science programme of the ISRs has been augmented by a number of collaborative operations, including the experiments in support of the International Polar Year, and by support for space missions including Cluster and THEMIS. A number of future missions, such as SWARM, will also benefit strongly from collaboration with ISRs. This session provides an opportunity to review recent studies in which observations from multiple radars have been co-ordinated, either for purely ground-based observations, or to support space-based measurements. It also looks forward to the future science opportunities which will be presented by the coming radars and missions, for example in studying inter-hemispheric conjugacy and the structure of the Earth's magnetic field.
