[PEM15-01] Study of the Coupled Solar-Earth System with Large Atmospheric Radars,
Ground-based Observation Network and Satellite Data: Project Overview
Keywords:Atmospheric radar , Solar-terrestrial coupling processes , ground-based observation network , IUGONET
We promote to clarify these coupling processes in the solar-terrestrial system from the bottom and from above through high-resolution observations at key latitudes in the equator and in the polar region. We propose to establish a large radar with active phased array antenna, called the Equatorial Middle and Upper atmosphere radar, in west Sumatra, Indonesia. We will also participate in construction of the EISCAT_3D radar in northern Scandinavia. These radars will enhance the existing international radar network. We will also employ a data collected with a global observation network of ground-based radio and optical remote sensing measurements as well as novel satellite measurements.
