Ionosphere Researches Division Ionosphere Researches Division


The ionosphere unit is one of the departments of the space Physics Division, which has been established since 1344 AH. This section is designed to provide the ionospheric data required for research work. Participation in training and holding training courses is another part of works.


Goals and abilities

A. The main objectives of the research activities of this section are:

Study of functional areas of UNSF activities (telecommunications, radio, television, etc.)

Investigating active faults by studying phase shift of sent waves

Study of the interaction of Earth's magnetic and ionospheric activities in Iran

Study of regional anomalies (isostatic)

Investigation of the factors affecting the ionospheric activity in the middle latitudes


B. The main objectives of this training are:

Short-term training courses using Unossfariation

Providing backgrounds for enthusiasts inside and outside the university with methods and instruments for measuring the critical frequency of layers, the height of layers from the ground, the electron density of the layers, the F factor and the maximum usable frequency (MUF)

Creating favorable conditions for students to use theoretical knowledge


c. The main objectives of this section in relation to other organizations and centers are:

Participation in implementation of applied research projects

Exchange data with other research centers
