Student Papers at the 2011 URSI General Assembly and Scientific Symposium

Radio Science, vol. 47, no. , 2012

Guest Editor(s): P. L. E. Uslenghi

Description:754 Students from universities all over the world were invited to enter a competition for five prizes to be awarded at the XXX URSI General Assembly and Scientific Symposium, held at Istanbul, Turkey, on 13-20, August, 2011. The entries are papers submitted in the format of Radio Science, in which the student must be the first author. The papers are reviewed by three reviewers. Immediately after the competition, all participating students will be invited to submit their papers to the special section of Radio Science and will be provided with the anonymous reviews, so that they may then to revise their manuscripts as needed. The number of papers that will be submitted for the special section will not be known until mid-October 2011; authors will be asked to submit their revised manuscripts by the end of December 2011.

      Carlos A. Leal-Sevillano, Jorge A. Ruiz-Cruz, José R. Montejo-Garai and Jesús M. Rebollar

      Article first published online: 9 FEB 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2011RS004838

      Key Points

      • A rigorous hybrid mode formulation is used
