Five-day AMISR Student Workshop held at Millstone Hill, attended by 21 students. PFISR also participates in PARS workshop held in Alaska.
The 2nd AMISR Science Planning Workshop was held to highlight results from first year PFISR operations, provide incoherent scatter basics and AMISR access tutorials, and discuss plans for future Resolute Bay AMISR operations. VIEW WORKSHOP TUTORIALS
PFISR completes year-long International Polar Year (IPY) run. When not running for other experiments, PFISR has operated almost continuously since 01 March 2007 in a low-duty cycle mode. The resulting large dataset, combined with that from the year-long full-power EISCAT Svalbard radar and the biweekly 30 hr runs of the EISCAT
Tromsø, Sondrestrom and Millstone Hill radars, provides an unprecedented volume of high-latitude measurements during the IPY.
Two special sessions on PFISR initial results at the Fall AGU, including 7 talks
and 11 posters with PFISR data.
Geophysical Research Letters October
2007 issue features PFISR on the cover with
an article demonstrating the volumetric imaging
capability of the system.
