A method of estimating the excess electron density in random irregularities embedded in the ionosphere

  • S. S. De


Wave propagation through the ionospheric plasma containing irregularities has been studied. The excess electron number density due to the presence of irregularities has been calculated in a way which may be suitably used for practical purposes.
