During Fall 2005 and Fall 2006 experiments were carried out at EISCAT in Norway aimed at advancing related science questions while improving the technical capabilities of ground-based radar and radio remote sensing systems. Significant progress was made between these campaigns in technical equipment capabilities and groundwork was laid for future advances. Related collaborations were initiated in advance of the 2006 campaign to assist in 2006 and future experiments. Radio and computer equipment was purchased for use during the 2006 campaign and beyond. Wideband plasma line channels and remote observations in Sweden and Finland were implemented on the EISCAT Tromssa radar, and an additional radio instrument was fielded in the 2006 campaign. Results were presented by the PI at two international meetings (one invited).The grant helped maintain momentum in the hiring of a new research faculty member and it is expected that there will be a new hire in August 2007. Four students are currently involved in work related to the project.
