The Union Radioscientifique Internationale (URSI) holds its annual conference on the island of Gran Canaria, May 29, 2022 - June 3, 2022. The unique international gathering brings together top scientists from around the world in various fields related to research and use of radio waves and electromagnetic radiation. Due to the size of the scientific area of interest, URSI activities are divided into specific areas of interest, organized in the form of 10 Commissions.
The Krapina University of Applied Sciences (KUAS) participates in the most important world conference in this area by presenting the paper Statistical properties of mid-latitude TEC time series observed during the rapidly developing short term geomagnetic storms: A contribution to GNSS-related TEC predictive model development. The paper presents the results of a joint study by KUAS and the China Research Institute of Radiowave Propagation from Qingdao, China. The paper is authored by the Dean of KUAS Nenad Sikirica, Senior Lecturer, Dr Weinmin Zhen (China) and Professor Dr Renato Filjar, a KUAS employee.
The joint results of the research were presented by the Dean of KUAS Nenad Sikirica, Senior Lecturer, in the framework of session G03 of Commission G, which deals with issues of the ionosphere and its effects on the propagation of radio waves. After the presentation, Dean Sikirica answered the questions from the audience that comprises the winners of the Nobel Prizes. During the conference, Dean Sikirica discussed the prospects of joint co-operation on international research projects with renowned world experts.
Based on his active participation in this gathering, the Dean of KUAS Nenad Sikirica, Senior Lecturer. has become a Corresponding Member of the URSI.
