ON International Baikal Youth Scientific School of Fundamental Physics “Physical processes in space and the near-Earth environment”, within which the XVII conference of young scientists “Interaction of fields and radiation with matter” will be held, 160 people will participate.
Yury Yasyukevich, vice-chairman of the BSFF organizing committee, said that young researchers and doctoral students from Russia, Mongolia, Belarus and Azerbaijan would come to Irkutsk.
Remember that the events will be held from September 5 to 10 in Irkutsk, their organizers – Institute of Solar-Terrestrial Physics SB RASIrkutsk State University, Department of Physics, Lomonosov Moscow State University MV Lomonosov, Russian New University (RosNOU).
At the conference of young researchers, sections of astrophysics and solar physics, atmospheric physics, including near-Earth, diagnostics of natural inhomogeneous media and mathematical modeling will work, oral presentations and poster presentations will be presented at them. Postgraduate students and young researchers will present 141 reports, they will be evaluated by a jury, which will include leading researchers from the organizing institutions.
Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Yevgeny Mareev will make a report on the complex interaction of the atmosphere-ionosphere-climate system for the participants of the school and the conference. Sergey Konovalov, head of the Marine Hydrophysical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, will talk about the flow of matter at the ocean-atmosphere interface. Leading specialist in the field of artificial modification of the atmosphere Savely Grach and head of the Research Institute of Radiophysics at Nizhny Novgorod State University named after MVNI Lobachevsky Alexei Shindin will make reports on the current technology in this field and the modernization of the unique scientific installation SURA, which enables heating of the atmosphere with powerful shortwave radiation. Marat Mingaliyev, Deputy Director of the Special Astrophysical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences, will talk about the achievements and modern tasks of the Russian radio telescope RATAN-600 (the world’s largest radio telescope with a reflector mirror with a diameter of about 600 meters ) in extragalactic astronomy. Vladimir Agapov, general designer of the Astronomical Research Center, will introduce young school participants to one of the most urgent technical problems in space physics – the problem of predicting the parameters of the movement of space objects in the Earth’s orbit.
Among the lecturers are also the head of the Institute of Information Systems and Computer Technology of RosNOU Andrey Kryukovskiy, Deputy Rector of Information Technology of RosNOU Dmitry Rastyagaev, head of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics named after AM Obukhov RAS Sergey Kulichkov, head of the fundamental department of the Institute of Solar-Terrestrial Physics SB RAS – Department of Meteorology and Physics of Near-Earth Space at the Faculty of Geography of Irkutsk State University Inna Latysheva.
A distinctive feature of the school program this year will be holding intensive courses in modern equipment in the scientific complex of the ISTP SB RAS. The first will be held at the complex of optical instruments at the Institute in Tory, built within the framework of the National Heliogeophysical Complex of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the second will be held at a unique scientific facility – the only non-coherent spread radar in Russia. The BSFF participants will conduct a research study a week before the event, process primary data, analyze, compare and interpret it. The results will be discussed at roundtable discussions within the framework of BSFF.
“Our task is to familiarize young scientists with the most advanced methods available today for studying near space,” said Roman Vasilyev, head of the Institute’s Lower and Middle Atmosphere Physics Laboratory, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences.
