Resolution No.9 (1981): Global meteor radar network

IAGA, noting that most radar meteor systems are now automated, considering the need for a more effective geographical distribution of radar meteor stations and recognising high degree of coordination necessary to undertake simultaneous world-wide observations recommends that

  1. IAGA member countries be encouraged to support and extend the radio meteor network
  2. international coordination be undertaken through a Global Meteor Observation System (GLOBMET) and that this coordination be effected in the immediate future through the Middle Atmosphere Program in SCOSTEP
  3. a committee be formed within SCOSTEP with representatives from IAGA, IAMAP, IAU, and URSI to produce a GLOBMET planning document.
