The content of the book is perhaps best gleaned from the following list of chapter headings: the earth's atmosphere, geomagnetism, the sun, magnetoionic theory of wave propagation, synoptic studies of the ionosphere, oblique propagation, signal strength, ionospheric disturbances (storms, sudden frequency deviations, polar cap absorption, etc Cited by: Ionospheric Propagation Page 6 which shows that very large propagation distances are possible, especially when the upper iono-spheric layers are used.

For example, if the F layer is used, using an e ective Earth radius of KR e = km gives a skip distance of km. Multiple skips are possible by using re ec-tions of the earth to establish File Size: KB. During nighttime waves penetrate above the D-layer, and propagation parameters of the earth-to-ionosphere waveguide are dependent on the detailed ionospheric structure below the F-layer.

Ionospheric radio propagation deals with sky wave propagation and is the key for all long-range radio communications. The ground wave reaches as far as the radio horizon, but under certain conditions, the sky wave may be reflected from ionized layers in the upper atmosphere back to the surface of the Earth, enabling word-wide radio skips.

Chapter 4 is devoted to the propagation of waves over long distances by ionospheric refraction and reflection in the high frequency range ( MHz). The radial component of the magnetic field is continuous across the ionospheric layer, and so the radial boundary conditions on Ψ are ∂Ψ/∂r = B r at the ionosphere (where B r = h r B 3, as in equation (A8)) and ∂Ψ/∂r = 0 at the ground, where the radial magnetic field perturbation is zero due to the perfectly conducting by: Galejs, J.
