HAARP: New frontiers in space science on the last frontier
William Bristow, Professor, UAF-GI
The Geophysical Institute recently took over operation of the facilities of the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program after the Air Force Research Laboratory discontinued its research at the site. This high profile program has attracted a lot of attention over the years for a variety of imagined activities. The truth, however, is far more prosaic than was imagined, though still quite interesting. This presentation will cover some of the history of the program, including some of the significant results obtained, and plans for future research.
