The International EISCAT Radar School is a training course for new users of incoherent scatter radars at any stage of their research career.
The school will be held at the nature resort Pikku-Syöte, about an hour and a half east of the city of Oulu during the week immediately preceeding the 19th International EISCAT Symposium, which will be held jointly with the 46th Annual European Meeting on Atmospheric Studies by Optical Methods (46AM).
The course will have a very strong emphasis on practicals, i.e. work in groups of participants on real data. There will be dedicated radar experiments for every group, and the groups will analyse their data and present their results under the guidance of an experienced team of instructors.
Participants should have a background in space physics, ionospheric pysics, plasma physics, or radar (radio science).
