W8EDU Members present at the AGU Fall Meeting 2020

Four members of the ECSE department presented and convened a session at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union, a major scientific conference that draws over 25,000 attendees (this year’s meeting is being held entirely online).

Kristina Collins, PhD candidate in Electrical Engineering, was the primary convener for the session entitled Amateur Radio in Geophysics with HamSCI and the primary author on a poster about her citizen science research around the June 2020 solar eclipse over Asia. She was a co-author on two other posters.

David Kazdan, adjunct professor, was co-convener on the Amateur Radio in Geophysics session, and was co-author with the others on multiple works.

John Gibbons, director of the Sears Undergraduate Design Labs, was co-author on a poster on the Measurement and Analysis of Low and High Frequency Radio Propagation for Study of Ionospheric Physics.

Aidan Montare, B.S. candidate in electrical engineering, was the primary author on the poster Science, Culture, and Celebration in the Shadow of 2024 Totality, which highlighted the potential for broad interdisciplinary collaboration around the 2024 eclipse over North America. He was also co-author on other works.

Fall meeting attendees should look for the following sessions and poster presentations:

  • SA028 – Amateur Radio in Geophysics with HamSCI I Posters
  • SA028-0005 – HamSCI: Measurement and Analysis of Low and High Frequency Radio Propagation for Study of Ionospheric Physics
  • SY014-0003 – Science, Culture, and Celebration in the Shadow of 2024 Totality
  • SY014-0005 – The June 2020 Eclipse Festival of Frequency Measurement
