Resolution No.5 (1979): Establishing global radar systems for M-I coupling study

IAGA, noting the success of radar techniques in providing new information about the dynamic and spatial structure of electric fields, and the importance of such information for increasing the understanding both of the ionosphere-magnetosphere coupling and of global energy dissipation in the ionosphere through joule heating, urges that member nations collaborate in establishing radar systems in both hemispheres over as wide a longitude range as possible.
