SGO Riometer measurements

Finnish Riometer Chain

Today the Finnish Riometer Chain includes observations from the novel spectral riometers and traditional La Jolla riometers at Kevo, Abisko, Ivalo, Sodankylä, Rovaniemi, Oulu and Jyväskylä. KAIRA LBA antenna field can be operated for the riometer experiments. The Imaging Riometer IRIS in Kilpisjärvi is still in operation 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).
