The ultimate objective of the Retrospective modelling and prediction of Ionospheric weather (REMAP) project is to embark on innovative research activities in order to enhance the research potential in Cyprus at the Cyprus Ionospheric Research Group (CyIRG) at Frederick Research Center under a collaboration with established fellow scientists from Pushkov Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radio Wave Propagation, Russian Academy of Sciences. The main scientific aim is to advance scientific excellence in ionospheric modelling and monitoring. One aspect of this effort will be based on the valorization of the Digisondes at Nicosia and Moscow and the unique auto-scaled fof2-hmF2 datasets hosted on various databases all over the globe. A second goal is to advance scientific excellence in the field of global ionospheric modeling to enhance the IRI-Plas model representation by improving the solar representation of the well-known CCIR coefficients and by exploiting past GNSS radio occultation (RO) datasets to validate the topside representation of this model. A unique study will also be undertaken to apply the powerful height-time-reflection intensity (HTI) technique on ionograms from Nicosia and Moscow for visualization and statistical investigation of an array of ionospheric phenomena such spread F and Intermediate Descending Layers that develop into sporadic E layers.
