NEMETODE Ireland

NEMETODE, The Network for Meteor Triangulation and Orbit Determination, is a team that uses low-light sensitivity video cameras to monitor common volumes of the meteor layer. By analysing the same meteor events from different geographic locations they are able to characterise the meteoroid trajectory, shower association and orbit.

Since it was first established in 2012 by members of the British Astronomical Asociation  Meteor Section the video meteor network has undergone significant growth and has gathered support here in Ireland. During this time members have gained considerable experience with the equipment and software and their stand will be an opportunity to not only share their knowledge with other interested parties but to bring new members bring to the Irish group.
