SGO Riometer measurements

Finnish Riometer Chain

Today the Finnish Riometer Chain includes observations from spectral riometers and La Jolla riometers from Kevo, Abisko, Ivalo, Sodankylä, Rovaniemi, Oulu and Jyväskylä. KAIRA LBA can be used for the riometer application. The Imaging Riometer IRIS in Kilpisjärvi is operated in collaboration with the University of Lancaster (UK) since 1994.

SGO riometer observations (David Andersson riometers) started in 1965. Originally riometers in Vidsel and Abisko (Sweden), in Ramfjord (Norway) and in Hornsund (Svalbard) were operated in collaboration with the University of Lancaster (UK).
