Introduction:

Classification of Radio Sun Activity at long wavelengths, from study of disturbances they create in the Earth's ionosphere, using terrestrial LW radio broadcast waves as probes.
 

Objectives:

  • Classification of Radio Sun Activity
  • GPS-enabled Ionosphere TEC estimation
  • Long wave receiver design, assembly & operation

Action topics:

  • Improve predictive capability of irregularities and impact on propagation of radio signal,
  • Assessment of modeling capability of global and regional vertical TEC on different spatial and temporal scales,
  • Define optimal observation capabilities for ionospheric services (ground-based monitoring facilities and space missions, especially a topside sounder system).

Clusters with relevant topics:

G2B: Ionosphere variability, S3: Solar eruptions, H2: CME structure, evolution and propagation through heliosphere, H3: Radiation Environment in Heliosphere.
