The Scandinavian Twin Auroral Radar Experiment

Stare Radar

The Scandinavian Twin Auroral Radar Experiment (STARE) consists of two coherent radar stations located in Midtsandan in Norway, and in Hankasalmi in Finland. Stare measures the electron flow (~ electric field) pattern and its dynamics with good spatial and temporal resolution over a large area (~ 200 000 km^2) of the auroral zone in Northern Scandinavia along eight antenna lobes. The Experiment provides a window on to the interaction between our planet and the solar wind.
