Ray-tracing in a two-dimensional ionosphere

Authors

  • R. W. LaBahn


Abstract

The quasi-parabolic method is adapted to ray-trace through a medium with horizontal gradients in electron density. The resulting method is and applicable to any model ionosphere without the requirements for numerical derivatives. Example calculations are given for model ledges and troughs and an average worldwide ionospheric model.
