The HIRAAS experiment is generating a huge volume and wide variety of remote sensing data of the thermosphere and ionosphere. The HIRAAS Team seeks individuals (researchers, post-docs, graduate students, and summer undergraduate students) interested in analyzing HIRAAS data, interpreting space weather effects, or collaborating in joint observation programs. The very diversity of HIRAAS data ensures that research projects of varying degrees of complexity, from summer projects to scientific papers to graduate theses may be addressed.
HIRAAS Guest Investigators
Guest Investigators collaborate with a HIRAAS Project Scientist who serves as a point-of-contact, acquires and distributes the dataset of interest, and contributes to the scientific interpretation. HIRAAS Instrument Scientists assist the Guest Investigators in understanding of the nature, quality, and limitations of their dataset. All collaborations are coordinated through the Principal Investigator to prioritize projects and avoid duplication of effort. Due to the instrumental complexities of properly interpreting HIRAAS data, dissemination of HIRAAS by Guest Investigators is strongly discouraged. The details of the Guest Investigator collaborations are described in "Guidelines for Publication, Dissemination, and Analysis of the HIRAAS Data and Data Products."
