This volume presents an up-to-date survey of the theory and practice of radio wave propagation involving transmission through and reflection from the ionosphere. A brief historical introduction is followed by such topics as radio techniques, plasma theory, oblique transmission, earth-space, amplitude, ionospheric disturbances, ELF, VLF and LF, medium waves, HF and VHF. The work will benefit radio engineers whose systems are affected by the ionosphere, researchers and graduate students studying ionospheric physics and communications.(1978) developed a model of the ionosphere, designed for trans- ionospheric propagation calculations, with particular ... 5.3.5 The International Reference Ionosphere The International Reference Ionosphere (IRI) is a compendium of heightanbsp;...
