e-CALLISTO (Observatory Lustbühel Graz - OLG)

UNIGRAZ is since April 10, 2017 part of the e-CALLISTO radio network [with many thx!! to Christian Monstein from ETHZ].
Real-time network overview plots (select the date and search for the station: AUSTRIA-UNIGRAZ)

In the near future e-CALLISTO Austria-UNIGRAZ will become a Space Weather Monitoring Station, running an automatized type III burst detection algorithm in real-time. Type III radio bursts are a clear indication of a magnetic restructuring process at the Sun, leading to the acceleration of solar energetic particles and coronal mass ejections.

A student's team in the frame of the "Astro-Lab2" practical training (summer term 2021) made the first steps. Master student Lukas Höfig currently works on the fine-tuning and implementation of the code. Stay tuned! 


  • Senior team: Paul Beck, Klaus Huber, Roland Maderbacher, Manuela Temmer (PI), Josef Ramsauer
  • Students team: Lukas Höfig (Co-I), Florian Koller, Lukas Drescher
