The Conference topics include methods of remote sensing of the terrestrial and planetary atmospheres, geospace, interplanetary and interstellar space and radio wave propagation through these media in a wide frequency range. Preference will be given to the methods employing already existing natural and technogenic emissions as the probe signals and requiring no special transmitting systems to be developed. Invited lectures will present reviews of fundamental papers by P. Bliokh who has contributed essentially to the development of these research areas in Ukraine.
The Conference topics are:
- Low-frequency environmental resonators and guiding structures
- Natural focusing systems
- Remote sensing and wave propagation in the geospace
- Effects in dusty plasmas
- Electromagnetic field fluctuations in natural media
The conference is jointly organised by
- the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NASU),
- the Institute of Radio Astronomy of NASU,
- A. Usikov Institute for Radio Physics and Electronics of NASU, and
- V. Karazin National University of Kharkov.
The photo above, provided by the organisers, shows the antennae of the Kharkov UTR-2 radio telescope against the light of the setting sun. The receiver operates at frequencies from 3 MHz to 30 MHz. It is a huge installation: T-shaped with the North-South system 1800 m long (1440 dipoles) and the East-West system 900 m long (600 dipoles).
