The 9th Annunal IEEE International Conference on Wireless for Space and Extreme Environments (WiSEE 2021) was held Oct 12-14 online hosted in Cleveland. The conference is a forum for investigators from NASA, the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), and the European Space Agency (ESA). For the Space Weather Workshop the Best Paper Award was presented to Dr. Shibaji Chakraborty and coauthors Jo and Mike for the paper 'Probabilistic Shortwave Fadeout Detection in SuperDARN Time Series Observations'. This was the first time that the VT SuperDARN group has participated in this conference. Congratulations, Shibaji!

The Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) Undergraduate STEM Research Scholarship Program provides awards of up to $8,500 to rising juniors and seniors who are enrolled full-time in a program of study in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) and have a specific faculty-mentored research project that has NASA or aerospace relevance. Application deadline is January 28, 2022. See https://vsgc.odu.edu/undergraduatescholarships/(external link)

The VSGC Graduate Research STEM Fellowship Program provides fellowships of $6,000 in add-on support to graduate students to supplement and enhance basic research support. Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a program of study in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) and have a specific faculty-mentored research project that has NASA or aerospace relevance. Application deadline is January 28, 2022. See https://vsgc.odu.edu/graduatefellowships/(external link)

NCAR's Advanced Study Program (ASP) has announced a new program which provides a one-month internship at NCAR for graduate students who may be early in their career or who don't yet have a defined project that could serve as the basis for a full Graduate Visitor Program (GVP) experience. The GVP Bridge Program gives the student an opportunity to explore potential collaborations at NCAR with the goal of a longer visit in the future. Unlike the regular GVP process, this program does not require an application from an NCAR sponsor. See

The deadline for application is Nov. 30, 2021
NSF graduate student internships are available now to do space/geospace research with Air Force scientists and research infrastructure at Air Force Office of Scientific Research facilities. Open to graduate students of PIs with an active geospace NSF awards or students participating in the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). Up to $55k/six-month NSF graduate student internships are available. The deadline for application is rapidly approaching.

First Paper in 'History of SuperDARN' series published

By: miker  on: Thu., Aug. 19, 2021 04:58 PM EDT  (937 Reads)
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.
