    Cathryn Mitchell M0IBG honoured for Ionospheric imaging research


    The ARRL reports Professor Cathryn Mitchell, M0IBG, academic director of the University of Bath Doctoral College, has received the 2019 Edward Appleton Medal and Prize for her pioneering research in tomography and data assimilation

    Her research revealed a completely new perspective on the ionosphere in response to extreme space weather

    “Mitchell innovated a completely new Earth observation technique by adapting medical tomography to image the Earth’s ionosphere, thus revealing the dynamics of the near-Earth space environment,” an announcement on the Institute of Physics (IOP) website explained.
    “Her use of Global Positioning System satellite signals as a source for space weather tomography, through a new time-dependent mathematical inversion algorithm, has given us the first global-scale view of the ionosphere in response to space weather storms.”

    Congratulations to her! Is the call correct? It does not show up at QRZ but there is someone with her last name who is G0IBG

    Thanks - is there a reason it does not show up in the QRZ database?

    the database is incomplete,which could be for several reasons, I know of several licensees not on QRZ db.
