In this study, a novel strategy for topside ionosphere sounder by employing advantage of MIMO radar with frequency division and code division (FDCD) is proposed.

An introduction to the principle of ionosphere sounding is given in Section 2. After discussing the proposed scheme in Section 3, the. [1] A brief review is presented to illustrate how the knowledge and experience gained from investigations of ionospheric topside‐sounder ionograms has benefited scientific research beyond the ionosphere.

In particular, to the interpretation of (1) natural radio emissions from space plasmas, (2) sounder‐stimulated echoes and plasma emissions, and plasma diagnostics in planetary Cited by: 7. Sounder Model (TSM) which is an empirical model for the O+-H+ transition height (h T), the topside electron density scale height (H T), and their ratio R T = H T/h T.

TSM equations are based on vertical electron density profiles (EDP) measured by the topside sounders onboard Alouette-1a, 1b, 1c, and 2, and ISIS-1 and -2 (Bilitza ). second has to do with the contribution of the topside ionosphere and plasmasphere to TEC. Although the densities are low compared to the F layer peak, the path length is long, and as indicated above, the topside and plasmaspheric densities are not well known.

Therefore the sounder observations of the topside densities and theirCited by: Abstract The effects of nonvertical propagation on high-altitude topside sounder data reduction are investigated. Although the extraordinary, ordinary, and Z rays exhibit significant lateral deviation in a spherically stratified ionosphere, the resultant effects on analysis accuracy are generally tolerable; however ionospheric tilts produce very large effects.

Abstract. Studies of electron scale heights obtained from topside ionograms lead to the conclusion that energetic particles do not usually affect the ionospheric plasma temperature at heights of or km. During magnetic disturbances, however, the electron scale heights in the region of the South Atlantic magnetic anomaly, but not at other longitudes, appear to be abnormal, possibly as the result of Cited by: ISIS (International Satellites for Ionospheric Studies) is a cooperative satellite project of NASA and the Canadian Defence Research Board to continue and expand ionospheric experiments of the Alouette 1 topside sounder satellite.

The name was devised in January by John Chapman, project manager of the Canadian team; O. Anderson, NASA Office of International Affairs; and other members.

Confirmation of Plasma Bulge in Polar Region Topside Ionosphere By analyses of the PWS-sounder ionogram in the polar region topside ionosphere, 29 cases of the bulge structures [8] have been observed for the 6, cases of the analyzed ionograms obtained during paths of the polar region passage of the Akebono satellite, in January Author: H.

Oya, Y. Katoh, K. Kobayashi. The existing uncertainties about the electron density profiles in the topside ionosphere, i.e., in the height region from hmF2 to ~ km, require the search for new data sources.

The ISIS and Alouette topside sounder satellites from the sixties to the eighties recorded millions of ionograms and most were not analyzed in terms of electron density profiles. The main topic of this Task Force Activity was the modeling of the topside ionosphere and the development of strategies for modeling of ionospheric variability.

Each day during the workshop week the team debated a specific modeling problem in the morning during informal presentations and round table discussions of all participants.

Topside Sounding Technique. Both topside N e profiles and the ionospheric topside-sounder ionogram database used to determine such profiles are available at the NSSDC. The Alouette-2 and ISIS-1 data are of particular interest for determining the transition from O + to H + domination since the high apogee (∼ km) of these satellites increases the chances of obtaining profiles to sufficient altitudes to determine the transition Cited by: 9.
