SuperDARN monitors how weather in the galaxies affect our planet.

SuperDARN is an international network of high-frequency radars located around the world. They monitor and study space weather to understand how it interacts with the Earth’s communications, energy and navigation infrastructures.

Kathryn McWilliams, a professor at the University of Saskatchewan and Program Leader for SuperDARN Canada, works with a team of engineers to analyze the data collected from the radars in Saskatoon and other parts of Canada.

SuperDARN Canada is funded in part by the CFI through the Major Science Initiatives Fund.

Canada Foundation for Innovation

The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) was built on the ideals of thinking big and investing in areas that matter to Canadians. Since its creation in 1997, the CFI has ensured Canadian researchers have the tools — the cutting-edge labs, facilities and equipment — they need to push the frontiers of knowledge in all disciplines, and to contribute to the full spectrum of research — from discovery to technology development.
