Polarisation of the Auroral lights (Polarlis)

We are 2 french researchers working on the space environment of the Earth and space weather. We recently discovered a new feature of the auroral emissions, it polarization. This was possible through an extensive collaboration with UNIS (and particularly Dr. Lorentzen and Dr Sigernes). The experiments were conducted at KHO. The light environment of

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

Summary

We are 2 french researchers working on the space environment of the Earth and space weather. We recently discovered a new feature of the auroral emissions, it polarization. This was possible through an extensive collaboration with UNIS (and particularly Dr. Lorentzen and Dr Sigernes). The experiments were conducted at KHO. The light environment of Longyearbyen provides us from further progresses. There is now a strong need for a full winter experimental campaign in order to connect the polarization to the solar activity. A collaboration with our Polish colleagues resulted in the fact that the instrument (built by the Oslo University under leadership of Dr. Moen) may be operated at Hornsund. We installed it in Hornsund in August 2010 and operation will go on from Nov 2010 to Feb. 2011. Three operational modes are envisionned with the support of the permanent polish staff. In summer 2011, a new mission to Hornsund is foreseen in order to reshape the instrument for a new wintering campain. In the meantime, a scientific paper on the results is foreseen and the prototype of a new and more powerfull instrument will be assembled.
