dc.description.abstractOn February 18, 1954, we held a conference attended by representatives of military organizations in Alaska to discuss general problems of radio communications in the Arctic. Since that conference was so successful, we have decided to hold a second conference broadening its scope in attendance and subject matter with the idea of making the conference an annual event. At this conference, and we hope future ones, we had the active participation of the North Pacific Radio Warning Service of the National Bureau of Standards. Included in the discussions at this conference were some of the new equipments and techniques being used at the Geophysical Institute in its research work. In particular, I refer to the employment of radio astronomy as a tool for ionospheric research.en_US
