ELF and VLF Propagation for Models of a Perturbed Ionosphere


  • Janis Galejs


Calculated parameters of wave propagation illustrate the effects of various choices of ion collision frequencies and molecular weights. Comparisons with atmospheric conductivity measurements tend to justify the use of ion collision frequencies that exceed the collision frequency between neutral particles and of molecular weights that are larger than the molecular weights for the usually assumed atmospheric constituents.
