        Singer was a pioneer in exploration of space, particularly the upper reaches of the atmosphere. He measured characteristics of cosmic radiation in the upper atmosphere, and discovered, or co-discovered, upper-atmospheric ozone, and the equatorial ‘electrojet current’ which intensifies the geomagnetic field.   The Concordia research station in Antarctica is a place of extremes: for nine months no supplies can be delivered, the nearest living beings are .

Australian upper atmospheric and space physics research in Antarctica, Author: G B Burns ; M Duldig ; Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions.

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume This is a second volume in the American Geophysical Union's notable series on antarctic research that is devoted to upper-atmosphere research.

THE AUSTRALIAN ANTARCTIC PROGRAM An overview of current and future research activities of the Antarctic middle and upper atmosphere physics program is presented, together with a preliminary discussion of future research directions.

The Australian Antarctic (Mawson, Davis and Casey) and sub-Antarctic (Macquarie Island) stations, as depicted in Figure 1, will continue to provide a platform for basic physics research Cited by: 6. 50 years of cosmic ray research in Tasmania / edited by Marc Duldig; Marc Duldig interviewed by Tim Bowden in the Australian Antarctic Division oral history collection; Australian upper atmospheric and space physics research in Antarctica, / edited by G.

Burns and M. Research in Antarctica Antarctica is an important location for studying Space Physics. Antarctica is the only large land mass in the southern hemisphere and south of Australia where scientific instruments can be placed between the south pole and Tasmania.

Research interests. I grew up in Tasmania, and studied at the University of Tasmania, where I gained a PhD in physics in My research thesis in radioastronomy was entitled 'Timing Observations of the Vela Pulsar PSR'.

Inprior to completing my PhD, I joined the Australian Antarctic Division as a research physicist.

The textbook used in this course in was Margaret G Kivelson and Christopher T Russell, Introduction to Space Physics, Cambridge University Press, —this is abbreviated below as ISP. It is not feasible to fully summarize the extensive material in this text, and we did not actually discuss all chapters.

The book is quite. Understanding and predicting all these effects falls into a category of science now called ‘space weather’. Physicists from the Australian Antarctic Division and other Australian institutions have installed two radar instruments for studying space weather – a digital portable sounder (digisonde) at Davis, Antarctica, and the Tasman International Geospace Environment Radar (TIGER) in southern.

This is the only extended textbook that covers Australian upper atmospheric and space physics research in Antarctica particular the physics of the upper polar atmosphere where the polar lights demonstrates the end product of a process taking place at extremely high latitudes between the solar wind and the upper polar atmosphere.

The first observations of southern-hemisphere PMSE were carried out at Machu Picchu base on King George Island (62°06'S, 58°28'W) during the late summer of The interhemispheric differences in the PMSE represent a significant opportunity for their study.

Scientists use a range of instruments to make atmospheric measurements at Australia’s Davis station and from similar facilities operated by other nations in Antarctica.

These instruments include: LIDAR – the light detection and ranging instrument uses a laser beam to measure atmospheric density, temperature, wind velocity and aerosols in the middle atmosphere ( km up). Upper atmosphere research re-organised.

Atmospheric physics is the application of physics to the study of the heric physicists attempt to model Earth's atmosphere and the atmospheres of the other planets using fluid flow equations, chemical models, radiation budget, and energy transfer processes in the atmosphere (as well as how these tie into other systems such as the oceans).
