EISCAT Radar Time Available: Call for Proposals

Tromsø VHF Radar seen from the top platform of the UHF Radar; Sep. 2017.
The EISCAT Scientific Association invites applications for observing time on the EISCAT facilities in 2017, 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 second one for 2017. 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.

Please refer to the details of the call at https://www.eiscat.se/blog/2017/04/10/eiscat-peer-reviewed-program-experiments-2/ for more information.

The deadline for proposals is 1st May 2017 at 24:00 UTC.
