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.
- MADRIGAL

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 from 2000-2005.
- IMAGE FUV system
- Polar VIS Earth Camera

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 stage.
- GAIA
The Auroral Optical Network provides ASC images


Magnetometers from ground
Magnetometers and ASC data:
- MIRACLE
