This session will cover all aspects of measurement techniques for plasma parameter determinations in the space environment. Papers are solicited on a broad range of subjects related to the use of radio waves for passive and active remote sensing of geospace plasmas, including ground based and space based platforms. Appropriate topics include experimental and data analysis developments and novel techniques involving inversion, imaging, interferometry, optimal transmission waveforms, and related subjects. We especially encourage papers addressing those applications, concepts, and architectures with transformative potential for remote sensing.
