EISCAT Radar Time Available for Anyone!

The EISCAT Scientific Association invites applications for observing time on the EISCAT facilities in 2015, by individual scientists, research groups, and consortia throughout the world on equal, competitive basis. This means that anyone can apply, independent of whether or not the applicant is from an EISCAT associate country.

While evaluations are merit based, in the case of two applications having similar merits in evaluation, preference will be given either to those applicants who are new to the EISCAT facilities, in order to enlarge the EISCAT user community and further more open access to the facilities, or to the applicant showing stronger educational impact in their proposal.

The present call is the first one for 2015. In total, 200 hours of experiment time are open for international, peer-reviewed competition, and are available for the use of any of the current EISCAT facilities. Roughly half of this time has been allocated in the first call.

For more information, please refer to the EISCAT Peer-Review Programme: Call for Proposals.

The deadline for proposals is 1st November 2014 at 24:00 UTC.
