Hi to everyone,

I would like to let you know that the MST15/iMST2 workshop will be held at the National Institute of Polar Research (NIPR), Tokyo, Japan during May 27-31, 2017.
We are organizing a session dedicated to ionospheric irregularities and incoherent scatter experiments.
The description of the session is below.
Everyone is welcome to submit an abstract to the following webpage.

Best regards,

Marco and Baiqi

Session M3:
Ionospheric irregularities and IS experiments 
Session Conveners: Marco Milla and Baiqi Ning 

Observations made using coherent and incoherent scatter radars are contributing to a better understanding of the dynamics and irregularities of the ionosphere. New radar techniques, antenna deployments, and imaging systems have been implemented in recent years to improve the quality, resolution, and spatial coverage of the ionospheric measurements. Extensions of the incoherent scatter theory considering radio propagation effects through the ionosphere have also been carried out to describe further details of the radar observations. Meanwhile, new GNSS (GPS + GLONASS + Galileo + Beidou) TEC/scintillation receivers and the expanded ionospheric observational network have allowed significant progress in the study of the ionosphere on a global scale. This session welcomes all papers on the recent advances in understanding the ionosphere with radar and other techniques. Of particular interest are
• E/F region plasma irregularities and associated ionospheric scintillations, valley (150 km) region irregularities, possible effects of E-F region coupling and of lower atmosphere-ionosphere coupling on irregularity generation;
• advances in experimental and data analysis techniques, coordinated studies with coherent and incoherent scatter radars, new facilities;
• Magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere (MIT) coupling studies using coordinated multiple instrument observations (e.g., Super-DARN and GNSS TEC receiver network).
