Towards A 21st Century Understanding of Earth's Upper Atmosphere

Dr Philip J. Erickson, from the MIT Haystack Observatory gave a talk last September to the HAM radio community at the TAPR conference about measuring the Earth's upper atmosphere with radio waves. The talk contains a nice overview of space physics, space weather, and radio remote sensing of ionospheric plasma.  The talk is available on youtube.
