PolarDARN - The northern hemisphere polar portion of the international SuperDARN (Super Dual Auroral Radar Network) program
Principal Investigator: Sofko, George J
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2004
Summary: The objective of this research is to measure high and low voltage patterns hundreds of kilometers above the ground and out into space along the Earth's magnetic field lines. This information is critical to personnel in space and to maintenance of the satellite telecommunications. Radar transmitting and receiving electronics will be installed in a small building with an antenna array outside. A ...

High latitude studies of the ionosphere E-region using the Sapphire North Radar System
Principal Investigator: Sofko, George J
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: The Sapphire North Radar System uses 2 transmitters, at Sachs Harbour and Rankin Inlet, and a common receiver at Yellowknife. This system measures speeds of structures in the ionosphere (upper atmosphere) in order to study the transfer of energy from the solar wind to the earth. This energy transfer is most apparent during "magnetic storms" when there are displays of northern lights. The researc...
