Dr Claudio Cesaroni

Claudio Cesaroni is Researcher at INGV and Responsible of the Upper Atmosphere Physics and Radiopropagation Unit. He is expert in ionospheric physics, in data analysis and treatment techniques focused on TEC calibration technique and effects of spatial and temporal gradients on GNSS signals. He developed algorithms for the analysis of TEC gradients and scintillations data at low latitudes and for the analysis of the dynamics of the ionospheric irregularities. He was also involved in the IPS project and in the PECASUS consortium for the development of models and tools to nowcast and forecasting TEC gradients effects on GNSS signals. He took part to several Antarctic and Arctic scientific expeditions. He is author of an international patent: Grzesiak M, Cesaroni, C., Spogli, L., De Franceschi, G. “Method for forecasting ionosphere total electron content and/or scintillation parameters”, International Publication Number WO 2016/185500 A1. 

In PITHIA-NRF will mainly contribute to the INGV node trans-national access and to WP2, with an allocation of 10% of full-time employment.
