Abstract:

A statement is made of the theory and of the formulas used to derive the concentration of H ion relative to the electron concentration and the ion temperature from the measurement of proton-whistlers. The potential results are discussed of measuring proton-whistlers from all of the Injun III VLF data based on a preliminary study of local summer day and winter night. Other measurements are suggested that can be made on VLF data to obtain the concentrations of He and O relative to the electron density.
