Graduate student Tianlin Wang was awarded first prize for the best student paper presentation at the  2018 International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) this past July. The paper is titled "Characterization of the Transmit Power and Antenna Pattern of the GPS Constellation for the CYGNSS Mission."

IGARSS was 38th annual symposium of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS), and Professor Chris Ruf, along with several students in his research group, also gave presentations at the conference in Valencia, Spain:

  • "Improved Calibration of CYGNSS Meausrements for Downbursts in the Intertropical Convergence Zone" - Rajeswari Balasubramaniam, Christopher Ruf

  • "Comparison of Wide Bandwidth Conventional and Interferometric GNSS-R Techniques for Possible CYGNSS Follow-on Mission." - Rachel Norris, Christopher Ruf

  • "Measuring Ice Thickness with CYGNSS Altimetry" - David Mayers and Christopher Ruf

 

Congratulations, Tianlin!
