5 March 2017
The final meeting of Net-TIDE project will be held in Heraklion Crete, from 4 to 6 October 2017. A preliminary program is announced. More information is available here.

25 February 2017
Interferometry analysis is applied to time series of classical ionospheric characteristics, MUF(3000)F2, foF2, and hmF2 using data from the Net-TIDE network to estimate the phase velocity and direction of propagation of TID waves showing the potential of the network to sensing the TID activity over Europe. The results are compared with the basic Net-TIDE D2D TID detection technique and with results from Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data. The general agreement of the results obtained from these three methodologies can support the development of a robust system for the real-time detection and classification of TIDs. A manuscript prepared from the Net-TIDE team is submitted for publication
15 February 2017
manuscript describing the TID model and the Doppler-Frequency-Angular-Sounding (FAS) technique
used to analyse the D2D skymap observations, as well as first results obtained from D2D links between Dourbes, Ebro, Juliusruh, Pruhonice and Athens DPS4D stations, is submitted for publication.

2 February 2017
A new technique, based on the exploitation of DPS4D ionosondes, is implemented to directly identify Travelling Ionospheric Disturbances (TIDs) in real-time. The new technique is based on the analysis of oblique Digisonde-to-Digisonde (D2D) "skymap" observations to extract measurements of the angle-of-arrival, Doppler frequency, and time-of-flight of ionospherically reflected high-frequency (HF) radio pulses.

12 December 2016
The final meeting will be held in Heraklion Crete, from 4 to 6 October 2017. More information is
available here.
