Abstract : Research team has reported the study of electron density irregularities in the ionosphere that lead to the diffraction of radio waves, which can be responsible for scintillation, fading, and the disruption of propagating signals. Significant efforts have been made to establish information on the occurrence climatology of such irregularities, to understand the onset conditions of such irregularities, and to predict or avoid the impact of these irregularities on society.
