The LAGO (LAGO: Latin American Giant Observatory) project is a collaborative network formed by eleven countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Spain, and Venezuela). The network of WCDs has nodes at sites with different rigidity cut-offs and different altitudes. One of the aims of LAGO is to study the flux of the secondary particles at ground...

The aurora can cause significant localised changes in the chemistry and climate of the neutral and ionised upper atmosphere. Electric currents associated with auroral features heat the atmosphere, and auroral particle precipitation ionises and excites the neutral species present. The aurora is often highly dynamic and structured on multiple scales, and thus the associated electric field is...

Basis concepts of SAR interferometry (InSAR) will be presented, stressing problems related to atmosphere and/or ionosphere-induced artefacts. InSAR applications related to the cryosphere study will be presented.
