Opportunity at Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL
Ionosphere/Magnetosphere Modeling of Wave Propagation or Wave-Particle Interaction
Space Vehicles Directorate, RV/Space and Planetary Sciences
||Kirtland Air Force Base, NM 871175776
This opportunity encourages applicants to develop new methods or adopt existing models to study wave propagation or wave-particle interaction in the ionosphere-magnetosphere system. Research topics range from electromagnetic signals interrupted by ionospheric density irregularities (i.e., scintillation) to wave-particle interaction scattering energetic particles in the inner magnetosphere. Associates will be encouraged to develop their own research efforts making progress toward improved space weather predictions. We anticipate results from this numerical work will be directly driven by, compared to, and/or validated by ground or satellite measurements.
