Description

The Geospace Science and Technology Branch has research opportunities in ionospheric physics and ionospheric radio propagation. Research opportunities exist in the areas of physics-based ionospheric modeling, data assimilation modeling, three-dimensional magneto-ionic raytracing, and the impact of ionospheric irregularities on high frequency radio signals.
