The world’s largest radar to study physical phenomena is located in Peru, highlighted the Ministry of the Environment (Minam), which specified that the team has an antenna that is the size of ten football fields and can measure atmospheric layers of up to 1,000 kilometers of altitude.
He held that this Radar is considered one of the most powerful in the world and can release radio waves of 4 megawatts of power to measure the physical parameters of the ionosphere and observe phenomena in the highest areas of the atmosphere.
This radar has high-tech instrumentation, which places Peru at the forefront of ionospheric radars in the world.
The IGP highlighted that the experience of its specialists, accumulated over the years and together with the most modern technology, has allowed the development of projects related to the construction of atmospheric and meteorological radars for the study of winds and rainfall in the lower atmosphere and the implementation of surface monitoring radars in landslide risk areas, among others.
The Jicamarca Radio Observatory and its radar have motivated the development of technology in the country. This has allowed IGP scientists to develop other instruments such as monitoring systems for huaicos, rains, volcanoes and others, in order to take forecasts in the field of agriculture, telecommunications (antennas) and precautions for disaster risk management .
