Abstract

The method of Jones used for the ray tracing of internal gravity waves has been applied to radio waves in the ionosphere. This method avoids problems usually encountered near a reflection point and, consequently, may be used to trace both reflected and refracted rays. The method is particularly efficient when the propagation effects of the magnetic field are neglected.
