Data and Instruments for IPY-ICESTAR
EISCAT Svalbard Radar
A main effort of the Norwegian IPY-ICESTAR effort is to run the EISCAT Svalbard
radar continously throughout the polar year, starting March 1, 2007. With the
open data policy, these data will be accessable for the international community
through the MADRIGAL database.
Imaging from Space
Imaging data from the IMAGE and Polar mission will be used in this study.
The IMAGE FUV system
and the Polar
VIS Earth Camera provided simultaneous conjugate UV images of similar emissions
suitable for comaparing studies. Short intervals of conjugate data can be found

Optics and riometer from Ground
GAIA is a set of tools for browsing / obtaining summary data from All Sky Imagers,
Photometer, and Riometers around the world. We are currently in the development
The Auroral Optical Network provides ASC images

The SuperDARN chain
With coverage in both hemispheres this HF radar network is an important database for
the IPY-ICESTAR project.
