Using the Aurora in Space Studies

Description: 

The University of Calgary has been an international leader in developing experiments that involve imaging the aurora. At present, UofC has more than 50 instruments deployed across the Canadian Arctic. This network takes images and other measurements of the aurora night after night, creating a remarkably valuable data set. These experiments represent an important Canadian contribution to a number of major international space efforts, including NASA and Canadian Space Agency missions.
