About the RMI
RMI in Dourbes
Reliable innovative measurements and research in Geomagnetism, Ionosphere and related fields for scientific, industrial and public communities.
The Scientific Service works with distent domaines from meteorology or climatology but that are related to them. The majority of the observations are made in the Geophysics Center in Dourbes (Province of Namur), which's management is assured by the Scientific Service. The site has been chosen in order to avoid a maximum of all kinds of pollutions.
This Scientific Service consists of the following services:

Laboratory for Instrumentation
Ionosphere and Space Weather
The ionosphere is defined as the layer of the atmosphere where the concentration of free electrons is sufficient to influence the propagation of radio waves.
