A new ionospheric station was recently established in Nicosia (Cyprus) to initiate ionospheric research on the island. The deployment of a DPS-4D (digisonde) developed at the University of Massachusetts Lowell's Center for Atmospheric Research (UMLCAR), is considered very beneficial to the ionospheric scientific community, taking into account the lack of adequate scientific infrastructure, especially at low latitudes of the European sector, for continuous monitoring. Its operation will contribute to international networks for ionospheric nowcasting and forecasting and to the enhancement and validation of ionospheric models in the eastern Mediterranean region. In this paper results in terms of ionograms and scaled parameters, will be presented and briefly discussed.
Date of Conference: 28-30 April 2009
