Marina Schmidt of the University of Saskatchewan SuperDARN group has announced the release of version 2.1 of pyDARN, a python library used for data visualization of SuperDARN data. It can be downloaded from Zenodo: link)
Via pip: pip3 install pydarn
Or upgrade: pip3 install --upgrade pydarn

The documentation for pyDARN has also been updated including tutorials for the new features: link)

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'. For a news summary of the workshops and publication of the paper with citation details click link)

How to acknowledge use of SuperDARN data

By: miker  on: Sun., Jan. 03, 2021 01:51 PM EST  (5029 Reads)
The research enabled by SuperDARN is due to the efforts of teams of scientists and engineers working in many countries to build and operate radars, process data and provide access, develop and improve data products, and assist users in interpretation. Users of SuperDARN data and data products are asked to acknowledge this support in presentations and publications. A brief statement on how to acknowledge use of SuperDARN data is provided below (click 'Read More').

Users are also asked to consult with a SuperDARN PI prior to submission of work intended for publication. A listing of radars and PIs with contact information can be found at Radar Maps/Tables/Links

As reported on the SWPC website ( Solar Cycle 25 has begun. Quoting: "The solar minimum between Solar Cycle 24 and 25 - the period when the sun is least active - happened in December 2019, when the 13-month smoothed sunspot number fell to 1.8, according to the Solar Cycle 25 Prediction Panel, co-chaired by NOAA and NASA. We are now in Solar Cycle 25 with peak sunspot activity expected in 2025." The press release by the National Weather Service with more details is available at link)
