Jorge Chau

Research Scientist

Jorge Chau is a Senior Researcher at the Radio Observatorio de Jicamarca, Peru where he has served as Director since 2001. His research has focused on radar studies of the equatorial neutral atmosphere and ionosphere. He is interested in the development of radar techniques to improve the atmospheric/ionospheric measurements as well as to improve the understanding of the atmospheric/ionospheric physics at low latitudes and/or trospheric/stratospheric altitudes. Topics of ongoing research include the development of radio imaging techniques for 2D and 3D applications, incoherent scatter radar measurements at D and E region altitudes under the equatorial electrojet region, and meteor-head echo studies to determine the sources of the sporadic meteor population as well as other parameters of aeronomical and astronomical importance.
