Organisation profile

In the Centre for Space, Atmospheric & Oceanic Science (CSAOS) we research the effects of the natural environment on the propagation of the radio and acoustic waves used in communication, navigation and remote-sensing systems. We use these remote-sensing systems for scientific studies of the geophysical environment.

Our research is driven by the need to understand the response of the natural environment to climate variability and space weather. We also research the effects these phenomena have on critical modern technological systems, such as satellite navigation and timing systems (including GPS).
