IMAGE organization

The original collaborators of the IMAGE project are

Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI)
is the PI institute of IMAGE. Partly together with SGO, FMI operates TAR, NUR, HAN, MEK, OUJ, PEL, MUO, KIL, IVA, KEV and MAS.

Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory (Finland)
participates in the technical service of the northern stations. Since August 1, 1997, Sodankylä is organisationally a separate unit of the University of Oulu.

Adolf-Schmidt Observatory (Niemegk, Germany)
of the GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam was previously responsible for most of the routine processing of the data.

Technical University of Braunschweig (Germany)
was the original coordinator of the project supplying the instrumentation to six northern stations (PEL, MUO, KIL, MAS, KEV, SOR).

With new stations also new institutes have joined us:

Tromsø Geophysical Observatory of the University of Tromsø (Norway)
operates 12 stations in the mainland and Svalbard (AND, BJN, DOB, HOP, KAR, LYR, NAL, NOR, RVK, SOL, SOR, TRO), and also participates in the maintenance of MAS.

Institute of Geophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences
is operating the Hornsund station whose data have been included in the IMAGE data since October 1993.

Polar Geophysical Institute (Russia)
at Apatity operates the Lovozero station. A fire destroyed the first station in January 1995, and of the first observation period there are good data available only of October-December, 1994. Lovozero has joined IMAGE again in January 1996.

Swedish Institute of Space Physics
provides data of Kiruna from the beginning of 1996, and from Lycksele since July 1998.

Geological Survey of Sweden
joined IMAGE in January 1998 with the observatories Abisko and Uppsala.

University of Tartu and Estonian Meteorological and Hydrological Institute
joined IMAGE in September 2001 with a station at the Tartu Observatory (now maintained by FMI).
