Description

The Geospace Science and Technology Branch has research opportunities in ionospheric modeling including physics-based, empirical and data assimilation approaches. Research interests include the specification and forecasting of global and mesoscale phenonema, such as the effect of global thermospheric tides on the ionosphere, disturbed high-latitude conditions, and smaller scale disturbances like Medium Scale Traveling Ionospheric Disturbances (MSTIDs).
