NERC commits to 3D radar

The Natural Environment Research Council is to bankroll the UK’s involvement in an international three-dimensional imaging radar system to be built in the Arctic.

NERC confirmed that it would provide between £4 million and £6m for the Eiscat 3D radar, which will cost £63m in total, in a statement on 23 August.

The construction of the radar will be led by the European Incoherent Scatter Scientific Association, whose members are located in China, Japan, Finland, Norway, Sweden and the UK. Funding for the project comes from research funding agencies in member countries and the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework programme.
