LOFAR, Weather and the implications for EISCAT_3D and the SKA.

Session: INS4: LOFAR, the LOw Frequency ARray: Ongoing Developments and Early Results

Presentation type: Poster      Poster Session B   


The LOFAR (Low-Frequency Array) system makes use of mass-produced, relatively-cheap antennas deployed in a wide variety of different site environments. Apart from the challenges of varying local geology, layout and infrastructure, each presents its own unique weather conditions. With several years of experience (and some failures and damage), we are now in a position to assess the physical performance of the design and look at the implications of our findings on long-term LOFAR operations as well as other planned phased-array systems such as EISCAT_3D and the Square Kilometre Array (SKA).
