USNC-URSI Commission F - Wave Propagation and Remote Sensing

Commission F is concerned with electromagnetic wave propagation and sensing in non-ionized media, which includes radio-meteorology, radio-oceanography and remote sensing using satellites. The commission encourages study of all aspects of wave propagation at all frequencies in a non-ionized environment -- especially wave propagation over the Earth's surface, wave propagation in, and interaction with, the neutral atmosphere, wave interaction with the Earth's surface (oceans, land, and ice), wave propagation through, and scattering by the subsurface medium, as well as characterization of the environment as it affects wave phenomena. In addition, the commission applies results of these studies, particularly in the areas of remote sensing and communications, and cooperates with other URSI Commissions and other relevant organizations.
