The Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC) is honored to have a staff of supporting researchers from around
the world who have recognized the importance and credibility of the work being done by the SSRC. These
professional scientists and researchers are in many cases leaders in their fields.
Dr. Ole Humlum
Dr. Humlum is Professor of Physical Geography at the
Institute of Geosciences, University of Oslo, Norway. He is also an Adjunct Professor of Physical Geography at the
University Centre in Svalbard. His areas of research include glacial and periglacial geomorphology, with emphasis
on the climatic control in cold-climate high relief areas, past as well as present. His research has also included
climate variability, ice sheet and glacial environments and mapping of Arctic and Antarctic temperature changes.
Dr. Komitov at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences is one of Europe’s foremost authorities on solar
cycle study and its effects on the climate of the Earth. He holds a M.S. in Physics from the Sofia University and PhD in Physics
from the Institute of Astronomy, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. He is now a professor of Astronomy. Since 1996 he has concentrated
in solar activity analysis focusing on large time scale variations using sunspots and other proxies of solar activity. He
has published important and fundamental research papers dealing with the determination of climate change as a function of
the Sun’s behavior. He has concluded that the Earth has entered a new climate period that will be between the Dalton
Minimum and Maunder Minimum in terms of depth and extent of cold.
Dr. Butina is in the UK. He holds a PhD
in Synthetic Organic Chemistry. He has had an extensive, successful career with Glaxo Research where he was part of the team
that developed a drug treatment for migraines for which the team was given "The Queens Award." He is an expert in
numerical analysis of instrumental/experimental data and modelling of physico-chemical properties of molecules. Accordingly,
he has presented numerous research papers and chaired sessions at international conferences. In the last three years he has
devoted his expertise to analysis of daily thermometer-based data.
