REMINDER: The 2016 ISR Summer School application deadline is next week!

2016 ISR Summer School

A Joint NSF and EISCAT Radar School


Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory

Sodankylä, Finland

24-30 July 2016


The 2016 ISR Summer School will be held in Finland at the Sodankylä
Geophysical Observatory 

24-30 July, inclusive. The school provides students with hands-on experience
in designing 

and running experiments at incoherent scatter radar facilities. During this
summer school, 

students will have the opportunity to run experiments with the EISCAT
incoherent scatter 

radar (ISR) and use data from multiple ISR observatories, such as Poker Flat

Millstone Hill, Sondrestrom, Arecibo and Jicamarca. The school will be
structured to provide 

presentations in the morning and hands-on experience in experiment design
and analysis in 

the afternoons. The morning lectures will include an introduction to the
theory of incoherent 

scatter, radar operations, ISR analysis techniques, and the Madrigal
database. The afternoon 

exercises will involve working closely with ISR facility staff in the topic
areas of proposal 

design, experiment execution, and data analysis. All students will have the
opportunity to 

work one-on-one with experienced scientists from multiple institutions.


The ISR summer school is suitable for graduate and advanced undergraduate
students and 

attendance is limited. For most students attending institutions within the
United States, 

travel, housing and meals will be provided. For post-docs and students
outside of the United 

States, funding will be considered on a case-by-case basis. All students who
wish to apply for 

the ISR summer school must follow the application instructions at the
appropriate summer 

school web site:
