*First Announcement*



Over the last 30 years, we have held a very successful series of 
workshops on "Technical and Scientific Aspects of MST Radar". A 
fourteenth is to be held in 2014, but this time we are expanding the 
scope to include ionospheric research. This is motivated by the fact 
that many in the MST radar community are also engaged in ionospheric 
radar work and we recognize the benefits of having joint workshops with 
our colleagues who focus primarily on ionospheric research. We are 
optimistic that this will lead to improvements in research techniques, 
analysis and fundamental understanding of both atmospheric and 
ionospheric processes. The workshop will thereby be described by the 
joint title MST14/iMST1, with the anticipation that this may be the 
first of many such collaborative workshops.

MST14 /iMST1 will be held at the National Institute for Space Research 
(INPE) in Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil, from May 25 to May 31, 2014.

Scientists, engineers, technical experts, theoreticians, students, all 
united in one forum for MST radar studies *--- *this is what has been 
special about the series of MST workshops. Previous workshops have been 
held in diverse locations like India, Peru, the USA, UK, France, Canada 
and Germany. The focus of the upcoming iMST workshop in São José dos 
Campos (SP) will be meso/strato/tropospheric and ionospheric coherent 
scatter radars, but contributions from related areas, such as incoherent 
scatter probing, collaborative studies using radars and other 
instruments like lidars and in-situ studies, and relevant modeling 
efforts will all be welcome.

Contributed and invited talks will be organized in the following sessions:

1) Incoherent scatter techniques and advanced ionospheric sounders and 

2) Meteorology and forecasting/nowcasting

3) Ionospheric irregularities

4) New instruments, signal processing, and quality control

5) Meteor studies and observations

6) MST scattering, micro-scale processes and turbulence

7) Middle Atmosphere Dynamics and Structure

We especially encourage papers involving multi-instrument applications 
which include MST radars, wind profilers and ionospheric coherent 
scatter radars (e.g. radars/forecast models, radars/lidars, radars/in 
situ (rockets or satellites), radars/airglow imagers, radars/satellites, 
etc.) in all sessions.

The program will also integrate several invited tutorial lectures 
throughout the workshop, which we anticipate will be of interest to all 
participants, but will be of particular importance to students and those 
new to the field.
