- The Scandinavian Twin Auroral Radar Experiment (STARE)
consists of two coherent radar stations located in
- Midtsandan in Norway(63.6667 lat, 10.73 lon), and
in Hankasalmi in Finland(62.3047 lat, 26.6494 lon). Stare measures
the electron flow (~ electric field) pattern
and its dynamics with good spatial and temporal resolution over
- area (~ 200 000 km^2) of the auroral zone in Northern
Scandinavia along eight antenna
- The Experiment provides a window on to the interaction
between our planet and the solar wind.
- STARE is part of the MIRACLE ground-based network
which contains magnetometers, all-sky cameras, and STARE.
- Using some great strategic
public relations this Project lets people see its progression
step by step.
