EISCAT_3D Opening Event

EISCAT_3D Opening Event Short report (PDF) The opening event for the construction of the first stage of the EISCAT_3D system took place in Tromsø and Storfjord, Norway, on 7 September 2017. The day started in brilliant sunshine with a bus transport to UiT, the Arctic University of Norway, where the first part of the opening event was held. Anne Husebekk, the university rector, greeted us all welcome and Ingrid Mann, the leader of the Norwegian project consortium, presented a general overview of the EISCAT_3D project. This was followed by short addresses from representatives of the EISCAT associate countries from which it was clear that there are high expectations from the international EISCAT user community for the future potential of the new system. Finally, Craig Heinselman, EISCAT director, detailed the technical implementation of the EISCAT_3D system. The opening event continued with a 90 minute long coach ride to the UiT Skibotn field station with a guide pointing out several interesting geological details along the way in the local...
