Norway-Russia partnership in the study of turbulence and waves in the polar ionosphere focuses on the research based education at master and PhD levels.
Norway-Russia partnership in the study of turbulence and waves in the polar ionosphere is a collaboration within education on master and PhD levels between the University of Oslo and the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Through this collaboration we offer mobility of students, joined thesis supervision, and also workshops for students from Norway and Russia.
The topics of student projects will be related to studies of different processes in the polar (high-latitude) Earth's ionosphere, and in particular plasma instabilities, plasma waves, turbulence and GPS scintillations. The portfolio of activities includes two workshops, student mobility and long-term student projects. The workshops will be organised in Russia in 2017 and in Norway, Svalbard, in 2018. They will consist of a series of lectures, project work, discussions and work towards scientific papers.
By taking part in this project you will also get chance to learn about the unique history of space exploration.
More information about the workshops and how to participate will appear soon. Please contact us if you have any questions.
The funding for the Norway-Russia Partnership is provided by the Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education (SIU) and the the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research through the UTFORSK programme (funding for years 2017-2018, project UTF-2016-short-term/10026). The current partnership builds upon previous project Energy transfer through the polar ionosphere that was carried out in years 2015-2016.
