Abstract

GPS/GNSS has impacted nearly every aspect of our modern society. Yet, it relies on extremely low power signals traversing a vast space to reach the Earth surface. Numerous factors interfere with the signals along their propagation path, including ionosphere plasma, moisture in the lower troposphere, multipath reflections from Earth surface, and intentional and unintentional radio frequency sources.  These nuisance factors enable satellite navigation signals to function as signals-of-opportunity for low cost, distributed, passive sensing of the signal propagation environments.  

This presentation will discuss the latest research work in the Satellite Navigation and Sensing Lab at the University of Colorado Boulder in applying satellite navigation signals for space weather monitoring, atmospheric profiling, ocean wind retrieval, precision altimetry measurements over ocean, sea ice, inland water bodies, and land cover, and radio frequency interference detections.  Both ground-based GNSS networks and spaceborne radio occultation and reflectometry receiver technologies will also be covered.

Biography

Jade Morton is Helen and Hubert Croft Professor in the Ann and H.J. Smead Aerospace Engineering Sciences Department at the University of Colorado Boulder, USA. Her research expertise lies at the intersection of satellite navigation technologies and remote sensing of the ionosphere, troposphere, and Earth surface. She received her PhD in Electrical Engineering from Pennsylvania State University. Prof Morton is a Fellow of the IEEE, the Institute of Navigation, and UK's Royal Institute of Navigation.

Photography is constantly dying and being reborn. AI represents the latest stage of photography's transformation into a software output, cannibalising the camera and even transforming it into a set of executable text prompts

Wanderings About History – The Photography of Ulrich Wüst

Ulrich Wüst's photographic work captures his wanderings through German history, portraying the social and urban transformations from the GDR and its disintegration, through the German reunification to the present day. Wüst revives the German history in a new static way, where the past and present clash in a dynamic and ever-changing environment.
