ISWI Webinars

The ISWI Webinar committee organizes and  hosts virtual seminars on topics of interest to the community. The webinars are recorded and the playlist with the previous seminars, which will also include future sessions, can be accessed through the following link:

The ISWI seminar corresponding to May is cancelled due to overlapping with the upcoming ICTP-SCOSTEP-ISWI workshop.
We will meet again in June for the next seminar.
The most recent ISWI Seminar of 2023 was by Dr Keith Groves on April 26, 2023 at 3 PM Central European Time (9 AM EDT; 6:30 PM IST).
To register for  virtual seminars, send an email to: [email protected]. Please include “ISWI Seminar Registration” in the subject line. There is a limit of 300 participants, so please register your interest as soon as possible. The MS Teams link will be sent to registered participants 2 days before the event.
Title: Irregularities, Scintillations and System Impacts

Speaker: Dr Keith Groves

The formation of plasma structure and turbulence in the ionosphere has long been a topic of interest in space physics, both from a scientific perspective and because of the associated radio wave propagation effects. From a space weather perspective, these effects are among the most relevant features of the ionosphere. The presentation will describe common phenomena leading to irregularity formation, the physics of corresponding radio frequency scintillation processes, and the impacts that such processes can have on critical navigation and communication systems. Some discussion of future topics related to this important aspect of space weather will also be included.
