The 2019 Boulder Space Weather Summer School (SWSS) will be held July 8 – July 19 at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado. The SWSS is a comprehensive two-week introduction to the science of space weather: what it is, what it does, and what can be done about it. The School is targeted at first or second year graduate students who are considering space weather or space physics as a research field and is also open to advanced undergraduate students. For more information see 'Read More'. The application deadline is March 1, 2019

SuperDARN Dome C North (DCN) radar now in operation

By: miker  on: Fri., Feb. 08, 2019 10:47 AM EST  (438 Reads)
Dr. Federica Marcucci of the Istituto di Astrofisica e Planetologia Spaziali (INAF) has announced that the SuperDARN Dome C North (DCN) radar located at Franco-Italian base Concordia, at Dome C (Antarctica), is now in operation and the first data look good. In her words:
'The radar was installed by a team composed by David Biondi - INAF, Alessandro Cirioni, Angelo De Simone, Angelo Olivieri, Andrea Satta and Enrico Simeoli - CNR and with the really fundamental support of Jan Wiid.
I also have the pleasure to mention that the installation was made possible by the hard work of other people belonging to the logistics of Concordia and, in general, to PNRA and IPEV.
Completing the installation of DCE and DCN radars has been really a collaborative effort and I wish to mention the work of Igino Coco and Aurèlie Marchaudon, at the beginning of the project, and of Simona Longo, Stefano Massetti and Giuseppe Pallocchia in most recent years.
I wish also to thank a lot the many of you, and people of your teams, who helped giving valuable advice whenever we asked for.
Finally yet importantly, I wish to pay a tribute to Ermanno and Jean-Paul, the fathers of SuperDARN radars at Dome C.
The Concordia radars were funded by PNRA and INAF from the Italian side and by IPEV and INSU from the French side.

Congratulations to Team Dome C!

Kapuskasing Aug. 2018 Trip

By: ksterne  on: Fri., Feb. 01, 2019 10:55 AM EST  (481 Reads)
During the installation of the low loss coaxial cable in Oct. 2015, only the main array had new ground coax cable installed as time ran out to finish installing ground coax cables to the interferometer array. With a push from Simon Shepherd at Dartmouth College to get more radars collecting elevation angle, a trip to the Kapuskasing radar was planned for Kevin Sterne, Paul Kennedy, Mike Ruohoniemi and Simon Shepherd. In addition to installing the ground coax cables, the condition of the antennas along both array and the transmitters would be investigated and checked as the last service trip was the Oct. 2015 trip. Lastly, this trip was necessary to install signage around the site in order to comply with safety standards with the Canadian government.
