The first International Equatorial Atmosphere School 2019 was held on March 18-22 at the Aerospace Research Institute (LAPAN) in Bandung, Indonesia in partnership with Humanosphere Asia Research Node (ARN). 170 researchers and students from Japan, Indonesia and surrounding countries participated.
RISH, Kyoto University and LAPAN collaborate and conduct the equatorial atmospheric research for a long time. Since 2001, we have been successfully operating the Equatorial Atmosphere Radar (EAR) at Kototabang, West Sumatra, and continue the long-term observations. RISH proposes an international school for the study of the equatorial atmosphere. This event benefits young scientists and researchers who are interested in this field to have a good summary of the study techniques and recent topics. Also, this event helped accelerate our big research project to establish the Equatorial MU Radar (EMU) that is the full-spec atmospheric radar in the near future right next to the EAR.
