Abstract

The "middle atmosphere", defined as the atmospheric layer at altitudes from approximately 10 to 100 km, has been stressed as a region important in global environment and climate change studies; importance is also stressed on the Arctic region where the global warming is predicted to appear most predominantly. The "Alaska Project", an international joint research project with National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) and Geophysical Institute of University of Alaska Fairbanks, developed radio/optical technology and instruments which are effective for global environment and related atmospheric/space science studies. Project overview and results are shown the article.
