The lunar tide in theE-layer above Istanbul

  • A. Mete Işikara


The lunar tide in theE-layer of the ionosphere above Istanbul has been determined by the analysis of thefo E parameter from 1964–1967. Semi-diurnal variations were found to be significant. The seasonal and monthly variations of the amplitude and phase of the lunar tide show very little differences.
