IRF Scientific Reports

The Swedish Institute of Space Physics (in Swedish: Institutet för rymdfysik, IRF) is a governmental research institute. The primary task is to carry out basic research, education and associated observatory activities in space physics and atmospheric physics. IRF, with 100 employees, has researchers in Kiruna (the head office), Umeå, Uppsala and Lund.
