Congratulations to Master Anton Goertz! His Masters project used All-Sky Camera
data and Meridian Scanning Photometer data from Ny Ålesund and the KHO,
along with SuperDARN radar data to investigate Poleward Moving Auroral Forms (PMAFs).
In his thesis he used an arciness index to quantify, for the first time,
how the morphology of PMAFs changes as they move from the dayside auroral region
and into the polar cap. He also studied instances of ionospheric plasma flow channels
forming around the PMAFs as they move. He is heading off to Los Alamos,
USA to continue with his studies. Good luck!
Master Anton Goertz!
