The general theme of my research is ionospheres,
particularly the Earth's ionosphere and its interaction
with the space around the Earth on the one hand and the
atmosphere on the other.
Facilities and Instruments
For my experimental research I and colleagues use
facilities and instruments.
a mission of the European Space Agency
consisting of three satellites to measure the magnetic
signals that stem from Earth's core, mantle, crust,
oceans, ionosphere and magnetosphere launched on
November 22, 2103. We have developed Langmuir probes as
part of the Swarm EFI (electric field instrument). My
work is related to the LP data processing and scientific
the European Incoherent Scatter Association operating
scatter radars and a heater for ionospheric
- Cluster, a mission of
consisting of four identical satellites in orbit at up
to about 120,000
km (or 20 RE) distance. My work is related to the
Fluxgate Magnetometer (FGM) and the Electric Fields
and Waves instrument (EFW).
- Magnetospheric Physics, graduate course
- Guiding visitors of the IRF, often school classes with
children in the ages 8-13 (same as my kids).
