The Hans Liebe Lectureship Series

The U.S. National Committee (USNC) for the Union of Radio Scientists Internationale (URSI), with the generous support of the Liebe family, has established the Hans Liebe Lectureship in microwave and optical spectroscopy as applied to radio science, remote sensing, and telecommunications.

This lectureship provides travel support and an honorarium for a distinguished member of the radio science community to deliver a lecture on the professional topic of their interest at each of the annual USNC-URSI Radio Science meetings. A list of past lecturers includes:

Dr. Maria P. Cadeddu, Argonne National Laboratory
5th HL lecturer, Boulder USNC-URSI meeting, January 2018
"Spectroscopy and Remote Sensing Studies with the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Ground-based Microwave and Millimeter-wave Radiometers: A Review of Accomplishments and Recent Challenges"
