Latest Jicamarca Radio Observatory Stories
The ionosphere is a region in the upper atmosphere that plays a vital role for global communications. This region is used for the transmission of long wave communications, such as radio waves, and now scientists have found waves from the ionosphere offer valuable news about climate change.
A NASA-funded sounding rocket mission will launch from an atoll in the Pacific in the next few weeks to help scientists better understand and predict the electrical storms in Earth's upper atmosphere. These storms can interfere with satellite communication and global positioning signals.
The first global simulation study of equatorial spread F (ESF) bubble evolution using a comprehensive 3D ionosphere model, SAMI3, has been demonstrated.
Arecibo Observatory -- The Arecibo Observatory is part of the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (NAIC), a national research center operated by Cornell University under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation (NSF). The NSF is an independent federal agency whose aim is to promote scientific and engineering progress in the United States. NSF funds research and education in most fields of science and engineering. Additional support is provided by the National...
