Falkland Islands (51.83 S, -58.98 E)

The Falkland Islands SuperDARN radar has had two operating periods: February 2010 until September 2011 and November 14, 2017 to the present. The site is operated by the British Antarctic Survey. During the first period the control electronics were borrowed from the Halley radar while the Halley site underwent one of its periodic rebuilds and Dr. Mervyn Freeman was PI. During the current period Dr. Gareth Chisham is the PI. The Falkland Islands radar provides the lowest latitude data ever collected by a SuperDARN radar. Its field of view is conjugate to those of the Wallops and Blackstone SuperDARN radars in the north. Falkland Islands Radar Field of View Map
