Dear Colleagues,

In the near future the EISCAT Scientific Association will face a major instrumental upgrade with the ESFRI Roadmap project "EISCAT_3D: A European Three-Dimensional Imaging Radar for Atmospheric and Geospace Research."

EISCAT, in co-operation with the Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory, will run a training course for new users of the EISCAT radars, from 30th August to 4th September, 2010 (Monday to Saturday). The training course will be held at Sodankylä, where one of the EISCAT UHF remote sites is located.

The course will cover all essential aspects of the current EISCAT systems, including their science programme. An overview of the existing hardware and software will be provided and future plans will be discussed, with a strong emphasis on EISCAT_3D. Tips on analysing and working with the data will be given and the participants will run an own radar experiment in a hand-on exercise.

The lecturers comprise members of the EISCAT staff and experienced scientists from the user community. As well as providing a good foundation for new EISCAT users, the course will also provide a chance for more established users to be updated on the latest and future developments.

The deadline for registration in the course is 30th June, 2010.
