Research of the Earth's atmosphere and ionosphere are crucial for understanding our universe and the interconnected processes that govern our natural environment and impact the technologies we rely on daily.

Top scientists from across the globe gathered in Hermanus, Western Cape from 14-18 September, for the 17th European Incoherent Scatter Scientific Association (EISCAT) symposium and 42nd Annual European Meeting on Atmospheric Studies by Optical Methods (42AM) to discuss global space science research.

Hosted in South Africa for the first time, these two international events took place concurrently and attracted researchers from China, Finland, France, Japan, Norway, South Korea, Sweden, the UK and USA, as well as South Africa.

The EISCAT Scientific Association is an international research organisation that operates a network of radar systems used to study the interaction between the Sun and Earth as revealed by disturbances in the ionosphere and magnetosphere.
