Abstract: Since Christian Hülsmeyer’s first use of radio waves to detect distant objects, radio detection and ranging or radar has expanded across many technological and scientific fields. This talk will focus on radar as it is used to probe the plasma environment of the upper atmosphere. An introduction to some of the radar theory and physical operation of the radars will be followed with a brief discussion of my PhD thesis work with the Canadian SuperDARN radars.
