The Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences group at Haystack conducts fundamental and collaborative scientific research into the complex and highly intercoupled near-Earth space environment using a wide variety of observational experimental data sets. These include radio (passive), radar (active), and other remote sensing tools using instruments such as incoherent/Thomson scatter radar, ionosondes, HF based convection radars (SuperDARN), optical neutral airglow observations, and in-situ satellite instruments, including small satellite platforms.
Studies of ionospheric response in both quiet and active times also involve collaborative data-model investigations using frontier whole atmosphere community models.
