Dear All,

As you may be aware, SRI with NSF support has developed a "transportable"
Incoherent Scatter Radar (ISR), called AMISR. There is now serious
consideration as to whether an ISR should be located in the Antarctic (in
addition to the Japanese PANSY project). To this end, SRI/NSF are convening
a small planning workshop to be held 8-9 August in Chicago in conjunction
with the URSI General Assembly. Together with scientists from 11 other
countries, I have been invited to participate and to provide both a personal
and Australian perspective.

As part of their contribution, each invitee has been asked to give a 10-min
talk outlining their views on the scientific topics that could be addressed
and where an ISR would be best located in the SH. While I have my own views,
I would appreciate receiving any input that you would like to provide.
Please respond no later than 25 April as I am required to provide an
abstract to SRI by the end of April. Please don't hesitate to contact me if
you need more information.
