SuperDARN

SuperDARN (Super Dual Auroral Radar Network)is an international collaboration project by eleven countries in the world. SuperDARN consists of sixteen sites in the northern hemisphere and ten sites in the southern hemisphere, covering over the northern and southern high- and mid-latitude regions. Hokkaido radar is constructed by the STEL and is located in the lowest latitude of the newly constructed radars.
