Our Nicola Linty won the Best Presentation award at the ION GNSS+ 2018 conference for the paper "Investigation into the Space Weather Event of September 2017 through GNSS Raw Samples Processing”! Congratulations Nicola for the excellent presentation and Alex Minetto, who fought polar bears to get the data and to make this award possible!
The paper is authored by Nicola Linty, Alex Minetto, Fabio Dovis, Department of Electronics and Telecommunications (DET), Politecnico di Torino, Vincenzo Romano, Ingrid Hunstad - Physics of the Upper Atmosphere Research Unit, Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV), Italy.
The paper addressed the scientific use of advanced signal processing techniques on GPS and Galileo signals for the identification and classification of atmospheric disturbances. The work was developed in cooperation with the Italian National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology and analysed data collected by the researchers of Politecnico at the Svalbard islands during the strongest solar storm of 2017 (here the news from 2017).
