Gennady Chernov was born in 30 October 1941, in Chelyabinsk region, USSR. He has received a degree in astronomy at Leningrad University in 1966. Moreover, he received the Candidate degree in physical and mathematical sciences in 1976 and the Ph.D. degree in physical and mathematical sciences in 1990. Since 1967, Chernov is the Leading Scientist of the Solar Radio Laboratory of IZMIRAN (Pushkov Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radio wave propagation of Russian Academy of Sciences). His current research interests include fine structure of solar radio bursts, (observation and interpretation) and behavior of low-frequency waves in the solar corona; the elaboration of a unique model for stripes in emission and absorption for zebra pattern and fiber bursts in solar type IV outbursts, based on the interaction of whistler waves with plasma electrostatic waves; superfine structure from millisecond spikes of zebra pattern; comparative analysis of radio fine structure observed in the solar corona and Jupiter’s magnetosphere. In addition, he has about 160 publications from 1970 up to 2008.
