Abstract

This paper reports on the creative educational and research program of MARIACHI (Mixed Apparatus for Radar Investigation of Cosmic-rays of High Ionization) at Stony Brook University, a unique endeavor that detects and studies atmospheric phenomena (lighting, meteors, or cosmic rays) by using a novel detection technique based on radar-like technology and traditional scintillator ground detectors. During the past and current academic year, our program has been effectively modernized and streamlined in both research and educational aspects with the implementation of mobile technologies by the use of TabletPCs and wireless data collection systems as well as emerging cyberinfrastructure based on dynamic services as wiki, blog, and Internet-based video conferencing.
