Devin Huyghebaert, one of the Ph.D students in ISAS, is working on a new E-region radar. Here is the sixth quarterly newsletter for the ICEBEAR radar! (PDF) ICEBEAR newsletter January 2018
SuperDARN Canada's Research Associate, Dr. Pavlo Ponomarenko, spent December 2016 through March 2017 working as a Designated Associate Professor at the Institute for Space-Earth Environmental Research, Nagoya University, Japan. While pursuing a number of research topics, he put the main emphasis on in depth analysis of signatures of the Tohoku earthquake in SuperDARN data. It was a valuable time collaborating with our SuperDARN colleagues in Japan. Further details can be seen in the ISEE Newsletter from Jun 2017 here (see page 5).
A large contingent from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan attended the 2017 SuperDARN workshop in the Tuscany reigon of Italy during the first week of June 2017.
A poster was presented by Dr. J.P. St.Maurice titled "Comparing SuperDARN and Swarm ion velocity measurements". Marci Detwiller, Keith Kotyk and Kevin Krieger also presented a poster on the Borealis project (a new fully digital implementation of a SuperDARN radar). There were presentations made by Dr. Pasha Ponomarenko, Dr. Glenn Hussey, Dr. Sasha Koustov and Kevin Krieger as well.
It was a great week full of great weather and better food!
