THE PROBLEM OF THE EFFECT OF VARIATIONS IN THE INTENSITY OF COSMIC NOISES ON THE DIURNAL DISTRIBUTION OF THE NUMBER OF METEOR REFLECTIONS
FOREIGN TECHNOLOGY DIV WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OHIO
Pagination or Media Count:
Shain and Kerr Atm. Terr. Phys., 1955, 6, No. 5, 280-281 explain the midday maximum of meteor reflections. They turn attention to the effect of the diurnal variation in the intensity of cosmic noises on the sensitivity of the receiving apparatus in the frequency range below 100 Mc. The sensitivity of the apparatus, in turn,AFFECTS THE NUMBER OF REFLECTIONS FROM METEORS. Shain and Kerr point out that the intensity of cosmic noises at 05 - 06 hours on a frequency of 18.3 Mc is by a factor of ten greater than at noon. Taking as the starting level of cosmic noises the level at 05 - 06 hours, they introduce corrections for noise into the mean number of meteor reflections per minute. Author
