Klimenko M. V.
Lab employee

Senior Researcher at the Laboratory for Ozone Layer and Upper Atmosphere Research. He is one of the developers and active users of the Global Self-Consistent Model of the Thermosphere, Ionosphere and Protonosphere (GSM TIP), developed in the Laboratory for Modeling Ionospheric Processes at KB IZMIRAN.

Participated in the development of the EAGLE model of the entire atmosphere, covering heights from the Earth's surface to near space. The EAGLE model today has no analogues in Russia and Europe and makes it possible to study the short-term variability of the ionosphere caused by disturbances in the lower atmosphere. He supervised the work on combining the GSM TIP model with the model for calculating the propagation of radio waves based on the solution of the eikonal equation. Participated in the unification of the GSM TIP model with the models of the Global Electric Circuit and the magnetosphere. Participated in the development and testing of an empirical model of the Main Ionospheric Trough (MPT), built on the basis of satellite data. He led the development of a local empirical model of the ionosphere over Kaliningrad and a global empirical model based on radio occultation observations. Participated in the development and testing of methods for adapting empirical models of the ionosphere according to the data of measurements of the oblique total electron content.

Scholarship holder of the Government of the Russian Federation 2006 - 2007 He is a multiple winner of the URSI Young Scientist Award. In 2013 and 2015 he was recognized as one of the top 10 reviewers in Advances in Space Research. He was one of the guest editors of special issues of various international magazines. Laureate of the diploma competition in memory of Yu.P. Maltsev for the best publication of young Russian scientists in the field of magnetosphere physics. From 2015-2019, he was Chairman of the Ionospheric Irregularities, Fields and Waves Division II Working Group at IAGA. Recipient of the 2016 COSPAR Commission C Award for Outstanding Young Scientist Paper. From 2016 to the present, he has been an assistant editor of the journal Advances in Space Research and an expert of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

He was the chairman of the Baltic International Schools for Young Scientists “Magnitospheric-Ionospheric-Atmospheric Relations”. Since 2016, member of the publications committee of the international space committee COSPAR. In 2020, he was awarded the commendation of the Ministry of Economy and Industry of the Kaliningrad Region.
