The image processing component of this research involves the application of edge-preserving regularization techniques to capture potential electron density variations of ionospheric structures. The technique incorporates piecewise smoothness and continuity constraints that are applicable to general ionospheric conditions.4.2 Simulation Results of Ionospheric Structures We demonstrate the techniques developed in this dissertation in practical ... by modifying simulated electron density volumes taken from the International Reference Ionosphere (IRI) 2001 modelanbsp;...
