One of the other projects I support is the Super Dual Auroral Radar Network, or SuperDARN for short. The McMurdo SuperDARN is part of a network of 32 radar systems looking into the polar regions of the Earth. The radars measure the position and velocity of plasma irregularities in Earth's ionosphere. The movement of these irregularities responds to energy coupled into the auroral regions from the solar wind and magnetosphere. This means that SuperDARN provides information regarding the Earth's interaction with the space environment.

And I got a package from home, which is always very exciting.
