CORSI DI INSEGNAMENTO:
CURRICULUM - Prof. Frank Silvio Marzano received the Laurea degree (cum laude) in electronic engineering (1988) and the Ph.D. degree (1993) in applied electromagnetics both from the Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. After being with the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and a lecturer at the University of Perugia, Italy, in 1997 he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering and in 2001 co-founded the Center of Excellence CETEMPS, University of L’Aquila, Italy. In 2005 he joined the Dept. of Electronic Engineering (now Dept. of Information Engineering, Electronics and Telecomm.), Sapienza University of Rome, Italy where he presently teaches courses on antenna theory, electromagnetic propagation and remote sensing. Since 2007 he has also been vice-director and in 2013 he became Director of the research center CETEMPS, University of L’Aquila, Italy. He is currently the President of the Electronic Engineering School of the Sapienza University of Rome.
The current research of Dr. Marzano concerns passive and active remote sensing of the atmosphere from ground-based, airborne, and spaceborne platforms, development of inversion methods, radiative transfer modeling of scattering media and radar meteorology issues. He is also involved on radio and optical propagation topics in relation to incoherent wave modeling, scintillation prediction and rain fading analysis along terrestrial and satellite links. Dr. Marzano has published more than 130 papers on international refereed journals, 30 book chapters and more than 200 extended abstracts in conference proceedings. He co-edited two books on remote sensing for Springer-Verlag (Berlin, Germany) in 2002 and 2010. He is a reviewer for the major international journals in remote sensing, geoscience and propagation. Since 2004 till 2013 he has been acting as an Associated Editor of IEEE Geoscience Remote Sensing Letters (GRSL) and in 2014 he became Associated Editor of IEEE Geoscience Remote Sensing; since 2011 he is also Associate Editor of EGU Atmospheric Measurement Techniques (AMT) journal. In 2005 and 2007 he has been Guest Co-Editor of the MicroRad04 and MicroRad06 Special Issues for IEEE Trans. Geosci. Rem. Sensing. He is also co-author of a university textbook on antennas and electromagnetic radiation, edited in Italian by Carocci (Roma, Italy) on 2011.
Dr. Marzano is a Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS), a Senior member of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society and a member of the American Meteorological Society (AMS). In 1993 he received the Young Scientist Award of XXIV General Assembly of URSI (Osaka, Japan). In 1998 he was the recipient of the ARPAD award from the Naval Research Laboratory (Washington, DC, USA), whereas in 2008 and 2011 he received the Best Paper Award from the EGU-Plinius Conferences in Nicosia (Cyprus) and Savona (Italy), respectively, and in 2009 the Best Oral Paper Award on propagation from the EuCAP Conference (Berlin, Germany). Within 2001-2005 he was the Italian national delegate for the European
