The second Movable Antarctic Incoherent Scatter Radar (MAISR) Workshop, will be held during with the XXX URSI General Assembly in Istanbul, Turkey, 13–14 August 2011.
In August 2008 the first International Antarctic Incoherent Scatter Radar Workshop was hosted during the XXIX URSI general assembly in Chicago. The report "The Antarctic Incoherent Scatter Radar Facility: Transformational Solar-Terrestrial Research in the High South" was published shortly thereafter.
The main part of the meeting will be held
Sunday 14 August
The U.S. geospace sciences community has proposed MAISR, a modern incoherent scatter radar based on AMISR technology, to be considered by the National Science Foundation. The first MAISR is currently targeted for the U.S. Antarctic station McMurdo to address the polar cap ionospheric research, and the MAISR's feasibility study is underway. The overarching goal of this MAISR Workshop is to inspire international scientific communities to consider becoming partners in the MAISR construction and exploitation, especially in looking for future sites where MAISR could be moved after initial operation.
The workshop will be a combination of invited and contributed talks, and will last all day Saturday 13 August, ending after lunch Sunday 14 August.
Abstracts, including name of presenting author and affiliation, should be sent to Anja Strømme () before the deadline of 11 July 2011.
