The EISCAT (European Incoherent SCATter) facility in Scandinavia consists of a transimitter/receiver station at Tromso, Norway (69.6N, 19.2E), and receiver stations at Kiruna, Sweden (67.9N, 20.4E) and Sodankyla, Finland (67.4N, 26.6E). The facility has been in operation since 1981, and recently expanded to include a facility at Svalbard, which will have its own web page when data are included in the CEDAR Data Base.
