ABOVE, the Array for Broadband Observations of VLF/ELF Emissions, is a network of radio instruments located across western Canada. The instruments monitor natural and artificial electromagnetic radiation in the frequency range from 200 Hz to 75 kHz. The primary scientific focus is on energetic particle precipitation: we infer precipitation into the atmosphere based on the observed amplitude and phase of remotely transmitted artificial signals, and simultanesouly monitor natural whistler-mode waves (chorus and hiss) that drive the precipitation. Instrument deployment began during the summer of 2014. We report here on the instrument design and the first results.
