Abstract:

This report, Volume II, is one of a series of three volumes, reporting the following work The investigation by theory and experiment of the pertinent factors influencing the creation, propagation and detection of a type of magnetohydrodynamic wave, the Alfven wave, that could exist in a partially ionized, low density medium. The theoretical aspects of magnetohydrodynamic waves, as might be generated under ionospheric conditions and excited in a simulated environment, are investigated in this report. Experimental design and subsequent test results of wave propagation in three McDonnell plasma facilities, are reported in Volume III. Volume I of this series provides the reader with a brief summary of Volumes 2 and 3.
