ISR Sites for TIMED

There are 8 Incoherent Scatter Radars (ISRs) that have agreed to be a part of the ISR Lower Thermosphere Coupling Studies for TIMED/CEDAR. These are at 10 locations, since the original EISCAT receivers are in 3 locations. Some radars will only give electron density (Ne) such as the Jicamarca radar in Peru. Most of the ISRs have web pages in the CEDAR Database for summary plots in addition to having data in the DB. A web page maintained by the Millstone Hill ISR is at: http://www.haystack.edu/~szhang/cedar_timed.html.

The IS Radars with 2002 data in the CEDAR Database are shown as links in the table below to their summary plot pages.

The 2002 Geophysical Calendar with global ISR committed dates is found at:

The schedules for the ISR Coordinated World Days for 1998-2002 is at

The 2002 Coordinated ISR dates start with the SELT campaign in March.
