GENIUS - a scintillating monitoring project!

The TEC (Total Electron Content) in the atmosphere influences navigation signals sent out from satellites. By accurately measuring the satellite signal it is possible to deduce the electron content along the line of sight. With several measurement stations and the large amount of emitting satellites the TEC can be determined on a larger scale. These measurements are complementary to inner scale measurements, such as those being done from Sounding Rockets.

Great response to SIOS Access Call 2019!

The third call for access to SIOS Research Infrastructure received 29 applications. This is nearly 3 times as many as in the previous calls.

Planned Maintenance

There will be maintenance in the data room hosting this portal on Tuesday 22nd of October. All functionalities will be interrupted from 8am. The portal is expected to be fully available again after 2pm. In addition, to prepare for this, the portal will be unavailable on Sunday 20th of October, for about 1hour starting at 10.30pm

Scientific integration in focus!

1st of September, the team at SIOS-KC will be strengthened by our new Scientific Integration and Data Officer, Dariusz Ignatiuk.
