Juha Vierinen


Associate Professor / Space Physics

Job description

I am an experimentalist that works across a range of themes within space physics. I specialize in development of novel radar and radio remote sensing measurement techniques, and apply them to scientific studies in the field of space plasma physics, atmospheric physics, space debris, and planetary science. Much of this work is conducted with high power large aperture radars, ionospheric heating facilities, ionosonde networks, meteor radar networks, radio telescopes, and global navigation satellite networks.

I am not involved in any formal capacity with EISCAT or EISCAT 3D. My relationship to EISCAT is that of a scientific user or potential future scientific user. Please address any media requests to those that are formally leading the project.
