Proposed international facility in Antarctica



An international workshop was held at Stanford University, Stanford, Calif., April 24–28, to define the scientific and engineering requirements for a new international ELF/VLF wave injection facility to be placed in Antarctica.

The workshop was sponsored by the U.S. National Science Foundation, and more than 25 scientists from five countries attended. Discussions covered recent scientific results of wave injection experiments, outstanding questions that lie ahead, and opportunities for international collaboration. Considerations agreed upon by workshop participants follow.
