Abstract : The Polar Aeronomy and Radio Science (PARS) Summer School offers graduate students the opportunity to participate in a two week program consisting of scientific lectures and tutorials on the earth's upper atmosphere and ionosphere at the University of Alaska, Geophysical Institute, and experimental research at the High frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) Research Station at Gakona, Alaska. The 2010 PARS Summer School, conducted over the period July 12-22, 2010, included a total of 21 students and 14 advisors or visiting scientists representing 12 universities. During the research period at the HAARP facility, students conducted a wide variety of experiments ranging from the study of methods and generation efficiency for Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) waves, to the study of Field Aligned Irregularities (FAI) and their influence on Global Positioning System (GPS) accuracy. This report discusses the organization and execution of the 2010 PARS Summer School and presents summaries of the research carried out by each of the participating graduate students.
