On the Nature of the Irregularities that Produce Partial Reflections of Radio Waves From the Lower Ionosphere (70–100 km)

The irregularities that produce the partial reflection of radio waves (1.5–6.0 MHz) from the D region are investigated. Experimental evidence indicates that reflection usually occurs from localized irregularities rather than from a region of smaller scale turbulence.
