About this Book

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume 4.

This volume of the Antarctic Research Series is concerned with closely related fields of ionosphere studies, geomagnetism and atmospheric radio noise. The data forming the basis of the studies were obtained by many groups under the cognizance of the Antarctic, Research Program of the National Science Foundation. Of the analyses presented here, one was undertaken by a U.S. government agency (NBS Boulder), but the majority are the labor of the Research and Advanced Development Division of the AVCO Corporation supported by the National Science Foundation. Extensive studies of the ionosphere, geomagnetism and atmospheric radio noise, have been underway of course, for many years, but emphasis as been on middle latitude phenomena for obvious reasons. In view of numerous factors primarily associated with the Earth's magnetic field and solar electromagnetic and corpuscular influxes, the observations obtained in Antarctica are unique and are worthy of extensive study in their own right. This fact, coupled with the availability of data that are rather large-scale in space and in time in this once relatively inaccessible region, makes adequate data analysis and its publication important and highly desirable.
