Abstract:

Certain aspects of vhf meteoric propagation were studied, with the object of determining the variation of the ionospheric diffusion coefficient with height in the vicinity of 100 km, using a short-baseline interferometer. The investigation did not yield information suitable for an investigation of the height variation of the diffusion coefficient. However, the feasibility of a shortbaseline interferometer for measurement of arrival angle of forward-scattered meteoric signals was demonstrated. A data sample for horizontal angles confirmed previous measurements made by other methods. Author
