Abstract

Results of measurements of the characteristics of stimulated electromagnetic emission induced in ionospheric plasma by pulsed high-power radio waves (diagnostic emission) presented. The dependences of the properties of diagnostic emission on the parameters of the diagnostic wave, ionospheric conditions, and the level of development of artificial ionospheric turbulence are determined, and criteria are given for selection of optimal diagnostic conditions for ionospheric-plasma sounding. Results of experiments on the sounding of artificial ionospheric turbulence by means of diagnostic emission are provided. It is established that with transition from daytime to evening conditions, the characteristic times of emission decay are sharply increased. This is attributed to an increase in the natural perturbation of the F-region.
