Based on the results of statistical analysis, an effective regularization algorithm for reconstructing the height profile of electron concentration was proposed, an algorithm that takes into account ionospheric irregularities and requires a minimum of a priori information: the values of Ne(0) and Ne(∞) and the positive definiteness of Ne ≥ 0.
