A triennial summation of the state of the art in radio science
This book is the fourth in the modern series of triennial reviews prepared by the International Union of Radio Science to further communication and understanding of the status and future of radio science, both for those working in the field, and for those who want to know what is of current importance in this area.
The International Union of Radio Science, URSI (Union Radio-Scientifique Internationale), has divided the subject of "Radio Science" according to the ten topics of the Scientific Commissions that make up URSI. This volume consists of thirty-eight original, peer-reviewed papers. Each paper provides a critical, in-depth review of-and, in many cases, tutorial on-advances and research that have been of significant importance within the area of interest of the Commissions during the past three to four years. Among the topics covered are:
* Electromagnetic metrology
* Fields and waves
* Signals and systems
* Electronics and photonics
* Electromagnetic noise and interference
* Wave propagation and remote sensing
* Ionospheric radio and propagation
* Waves in plasmas
* Radio astronomy
* Electromagnetics in biology and medicine
With an included CD-ROM of the full book text, allowing the user to do full-text searching of all the papers, the Review of Radio Science: 1999--2002 is a resource of vital importance to anyone working in, or with an interest in, radio science.
