Fundamentals and applications of the Global Navigation Satellite System as a powerful tool for remote sensing and Earth observation.


        Global Navigation Satellite System



Satellite technologies are a natural ally in public health emergencies for tracking the extent of disease outbreaks and natural disasters. Great advances have been made in space technology in the past decade, and these advances have become useful for addressing humanitarian crises. The chief of these is using satellites to obtain images of a disaster zone quickly (earthquake or water-flood e.g.), so that rescue workers can focus their efforts where they are needed. But there are other uses of satellites. Space technology applications to combat and even forecast the spread of disease are also fundamental instruments in ensuring the health of current and future generations. Disease agents and their vectors each have particular environments that are optimal for growth, survival, transport, and dissemination. Factors such as precipitation, temperature, humidity, and ultraviolet radiation intensity are part of that environment. Each of these climatic factors can have markedly different impacts on the epidemiology of various infectious diseases. Satellite remote sensing, global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), and geographic information systems (GIS) make it easier to integrate ecological, environmental and other data to predict the spread of diseases. There were approximately 1,400 infectious diseases in the world, some of which were the main causes of mortality in developing countries, and that "a full half" of the world's population lived in infected areas. Malaria alone infected 219 million people in 2010, triggering the death of 660 000 ( In this case, satellite data had also been used to measure temperature, humidity and vegetation, in order to estimate how many people were at risk. That data was then combined with terrestrial and in situ data on selected rural villages to estimate how many villagers were in danger of infection. Other vector- and water-borne disease and epidemics, which are affected by climate and meteorological conditions, such as meningitis and cholera, cause serious disruptions to society and constitute a major burden on national health systems. Earth-observing satellites provide a transnational picture of vector-borne diseases, irrespective of national frontiers. Space-based data also help scientists to predict high-risk areas before outbreaks occur, and new satellite platforms result in a better idea of risk factors and allow experts to make more informed decisions.

      Teorie Gravitazionali  in Extra Dimensioni

          pico_de_paperis           Abstract

I study the gravitational theory considering the space-time with only one space-type extra dimension. I study the Kaluza-Klein theory and the brane-world theory where I analize the ADD (Arkani-Hamed, Dimopoulus, Dvali) model and in particular the RS (Randall-Sundrum) models. Basic idea of Randall-Sundrum brane world model I and II is reviewed with detailed calculation. After introduction the brane world with exponential warp factor, metrics of Randall-Sundrum models are constructed. I explain how Randall-Sundrum model  I with two branes makes the gauge hierarchy problem much milder, and derive Newtonian gravity in Randall-Sundrum model  II with a single brane by considerending small fluctuations.
