Radio wave-based applications I
- Nicolas Bergeot (Royal Observatory of Belgium)
Mr Joshua Albert (Leiden Observatory)
The spatially and temporally varying electron density of the ionosphere causes complex distortions to passing radio wavefronts, becoming dominant at frequencies $\leq 1$ GHz. Using a probabilistic description of the system we apply Bayesian inference to study and derive the phase distortions of radio astronomical data in multiple directions. The relative improvement to image quality is...

I will review the importance of carrying out radio or radar observations of meteors from South polar regions. From an astronomical point of view, totally different radiants can be observed than with radars at intermediate latitudes. From a space weather perspective, this provides complementary observations to build a more complete dust risk impact model. For atmospheric applications,...
5. RF diagnostics of troposphere-ionosphere coupling at the Ukrainian Antarctic station Akademik Vernadsky
Dr Andriy Zalizovski (Institute of Radio Astronomy, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine)
Ionospheric sounding, ozone and geomagnetic measurements were started at Ukrainian Antarctic station (UAS) Akademik Vernadsky (until 1996 British base Faraday) since late 50-th of previous century. The ELF monitoring of global lightning activity as well as Schumann, ionospheric Alfven and magnetospheric resonators were begun at 2000. During last decade we are use the GNSS-TEC technique for...
