Incoherent Scatter Radars - Scientific Challenges for the Future
Dr. Anja Stromme
SRI International Center for Geospace Studies

Incoherent Scatter Radars have over the last 40 years developed to become the most powerful ground-based diagnostic tool for studying the near-Earth space environment. In this talk we will look at where we are today, and what are the scientific challenges for the near future.

I am a PhD student at University of Tromsų, Norway, now spending a year at SRI International in Menlo Park. My theses work is on small scale plasma instabilities in the high latitude ionosphere studied by incoherent scatter radars.
