Commission G: Ionospheric Radio and Propagation

The Commission deals with the study of the ionosphere in order to provide the broad understanding necessary to support space and ground-based radio systems. Specifically, the Commission addresses the following areas:

  • Global morphology and modelling of the ionosphere;
  • Ionospheric space-time variations;
  • Development of tools and networks needed to measure ionospheric properties and trends;
  • Theory and practice of radio propagation via the ionosphere;
  • Application of ionospheric information to radio systems.

To achieve these objectives, the Commission co-operates with other URSI Commissions, corresponding bodies of the ICSU family (IUGG, IAU, COSPAR, SCOSTEP, etc) and other organisations (ITU, IEEE, etc.).
