URSI Commision G Terms of Reference


IONOSPHERIC RADIO AND PROPAGATION (including ionospheric communications and remote sensing of ionized media).

The Commission deals with the study of the ionosphere in order to provide the broad understanding necessary for radio communications.
Specifically, the study includes the following areas:

(a)    Global morphology and modeling of the ionosphere;
(b)    Ionospheric space-time variations;
(c)    Development of tools and networks needed to measure ionospheric properties and trends;
(d)    Theory and practice of radio propagation via the ionosphere;
(e)    Application of ionospheric information to radio communications.
To achieve these objectives, the Commission cooperates with other URSI Commissions, corresponding bodies of the ICSU family (IUGG, IAU,
COSPAR, SCOSTEP, etc) and other organizations (ITU, IEEE, etc.).
