Underground storm will not catch us unawares
What connection can be made between the life of microbe colonies or a group of biological molecules on the objective table of a microscope and a picture of the development of emergency situations on Earth photographed from on-board spacecraft?
Predicting large scale problems with the smallest of particles
What connection can be made between the life of microbe colonies or a group of biological molecules on the objective table of a microscope and a picture of the development of emergency situations on Earth photographed from on-board spacecraft? It is a strange question, is not it? But for the chief of the radio-tomography laboratory of the Institute of Applied Physics of the National Academy of Sciences, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, the connection is absolutely clear.
In all cases, it is a question of dynamic processes, which could be traced without the participation of humans. That is why it is necessary to teach, teach and teach such an electronic observer. The processes of the description of this ‘training’ were included in the theory and methodology of the reconstruction of dynamic images, which the young scientist created together with correspondent member, Valentin Artemiev.
Apps of this theory, which have become a new word in science, are already used today in technical and medical tomography. The advanced software is also applied by geneticists of academic institutes, working with optical and electron microscopes. This development helps experts at Peleng JSC to estimate the quality of images of Earth’s surface received from the board of the Belarusian remote sensing satellite of the Earth.
Alexander Naumov and his colleagues will be creating other interesting apps of theoretical work. Within the limits of the Monitoring SG programme, the researchers will learn to carry out ionosphere reconstruction, using signals directed to the Earth from satellites.
Primarily this will be used for the improvement of the quality of short-wave communication. But there is also one more purpose — the forecasting of earthquakes. It is already known that the magma storm that builds in terrestrial bowels changes the concentration of electrons in the ionosphere over this point. The hope is to learn how to operatively fix such a phenomenon, and this Belarusian method creates such a hope.
