Abstract

"Integral equations for the isotropic and anisotropic ray path of a radio wave propagating through the ionosphere are developed. These equations assume a spherically stratisfied ionosphere and are equivalent to a detailed ray-tracing process. A method is devised to utilize these equations in the evaluation of combined Faraday rotation and dispersive Doppler data from earth satellites for subionospheric electron content. The method, which corrects for horizontal ionospheric gradients, is applied to data from the Explorer 22 satellite and some preliminary results are discussed"--Abstract, page ii.
