The 15th International Workshop on Technical and Scientific Aspects of MST Radar
, to be coded as MST15/iMST2, will be held at the National Institute of Polar Research (NIPR)
, Tokyo, Japan during May 27-31, 2017. It will overlap with the 18th EISCAT symposium
(May 26-30, 2017) being held at the same venue, and participants of both events can attend sessions of both meetings. Furthermore, these meetings will be held following the JpGU-AGU Joint Meeting 2017
at Makuhari, Chiba, Japan on May 20-25, 2017 --- so late May 2017 in Japan will be a special time to learn about the latest developments in geospace and radar science.
The specific focus of the upcoming MST15/iMST2 workshop in Tokyo will be meso/strato/tropospheric and ionospheric coherent scatter radars, but contributions from related areas, such as incoherent scatter probing, collaborative studies using radars and other instruments like lidars and in-situ studies, and relevant modeling efforts will also be welcome and included.
