SuperDARN founder Ray Greenwald has published the first of a planned 3-part series on the history of SuperDARN in the journal 'History of Geo- and Space Sciences'. The paper covers the pre-SuperDARN era from experiments using HF coherent radar in Alaska with Jean-Paul Villain through the construction of radars at Goose Bay, Schefferville, and Halley Station and the development of techniques critical to the development of SuperDARN. The article is available for download from the site 'SuperDARN+https://hgss.copernicus.org/articles/12/77/2021/'

Ray dedicated this history to the memory of three SuperDARN pioneers who made significant contributions that demonstrated the value of HF radar measurements of the ionosphere and magnetosphere, particularly at high latitudes. They are John C. Samson, Jean-Paul Villain, and A. David M. Walker.

Congratulations, Ray! We look forward to the next installment.

Dr. Nishitani-san has informed co-authors and the wider SuperDARN community that the paper "Review of the accomplishments of mid-latitude Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) HF radars" published in PEPS has been recognized as a most highly cited paper among those published between 1 January 2018 and 31 December 2019. Dr. Nishitani-san conceived the idea of writing a review paper as a collaborative exercise with members of the international SuperDARN community and organized two writing workshops with funding from the Joint Research Program of ISEE, Nagoya University (ISEE/CICR International Workshop). For more information about the award see 'Read More'.
