Citing SuperDARN Data

The Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) consists of more than 30 radars operated by institutions in 10 different countries. The following review papers are recommended for general information about the network's scientific achievements, and for citing SuperDARN in publications:

Greenwald, R.A., Baker, K.B., Dudeney, J.R. et al. Space Sci Rev (1995) 71: 761. doi:10.1007/BF00751350

Chisham, G., Lester, M., Milan, S.E. et al. A decade of the Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN): scientific achievements, new techniques and future directions. Surv Geophys 28, 33–109 (2007) doi:10.1007/s10712-007-9017-8

Nishitani, N., Ruohoniemi, J.M., Lester, M. et al. Review of the accomplishments of mid-latitude Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) HF radars. Prog Earth Planet Sci 6, 27 (2019) doi:10.1186/s40645-019-0270-5

During your study, if using data from individual radars only, please contact the Principal Investigator (PI) of that radar about potential co-authorship. A list of radars, institutions, and their PI's information can be found here

Contribute to RST

The DAWG welcomes new testers and developers to join the team. Here are some ways to contribute:

  • Test pull requests: to determine which pull requests need to be tested right away, filter them by their milestones
  • Get involved in projects: the projects page is used to organize our priority areas. Each project board shows items which are in progress, ready for testing/review, and completed.
  • Discuss issues and answer questions
  • Become a developer: if you would like to contribute code to RST, please contact us at darn-dawg at isee dot nagoya-u dot ac dot jp or submit a new issue on Github.
