Great to see you here!

Did you know that there are {{related}} projects registered now with keywords matching your project, and {{close}} projects with fieldwork within 10km of your fieldwork site?

check them out here!

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.

The two sounding Rockets to be launched are part of The Grand Chalenge Initiative-CUSP Project. The Joint U.S.-Japan Cusp Heating Investigation, CHI: Single vehicle rocket launch from Ny-Ålesund range on Svalbard to measure neutral upwelling and high-resolution electric fields over an extended region in the cusp • Vehicle apogee near 350 km, down-range distance to impact ~350 km • Launch toward southwest near-simultaneously with the CREX-2 rocket launched from Andøya Investigation of Cusp Irregularities, ICI-5: • The ICI-5 payload is a continuation of the ICI-program which was started in 2001 by the University of Oslo, Norway. The scientific aim of ICI-5 is to single out the physical mechanism(s) running cusp ionospheric plasma unstable and facilitate backscatter targets for coherent HF radars. • ICI-5 is funded through SIOS InfrNor and we will adapt SIOS Data Management System (Svalbard Integrated Arctic Earth observing system)
