Forskning

Research at the Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory includes the following on-going projects and international activities.

KAIRA The Kilpisjärvi Atmospheric Imaging Receiver Array will be deployed in summer 2011. It is a broad-band VHF radio receiver, which can be used for atmospheric studies using transmissions from a range of radars in the vicinity as well as for radio astronomy within the LOFAR project.
SLICE The Sodankylä-Leicester Ionospheric Coupling Experiment (SLICE) is essentially a meteor radar deployed by the University of Leicester, UK, at Sodankylä and operated by the Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory.
NICE Negative Ion Chemistry Effects in mesospheric active heating experiments (NICE) is a project to quantify the role of the negative ion chemistry in the high-latitude mesosphere by combining optimised RF heating experiments in the ionospheric D region with detailed, coupled modelling of the ion-neutral chemistry.
CHAMOS Chemical Aeronomy in the Mesosphere and Ozone in the Stratosphere (CHAMOS) originated from the development of the Sodankylä ion-neutral chemistry model (SIC) at SGO, aims to study the effect of energetic particle precipitation (e.g. aurora) on the ozone budget of the mesosphere and stratosphere.
SIC Sodankylä Ion-neutral Chemistry model (SIC); detailed computer model of the chemistry of the ionospheric D and E regions (50-120 km) developed at SGO.
THERMES Thermosphere and Mesosphere affecting the Stratosphere (THERMES) is a project for estimating cosequences of solar forcing on the mesosphere/lower thermosphere and their impacts on the stratosphere.
