    Aitor Anduaga presents the thesis that certain structural reasons intrinsic to the radio industry, to technical education and to the geopolitics of the interwar period actively fomented and were determinant for the emergence of physical research of the ionosphere. He examines the connection between the development of imperial radio communications and atmospheric physics; the expansion of the British radio industry and its relation to ionosphere research; and radio and atmospheric sciences research in Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
