Abstract:

The report presents the results of a theoretical analysis and a laboratory simulation of certain transpolar VLFELF propagation phenomena. The calculations are based on daytime ionospheric models representative of ambient conditions and of conditions which prevail during polar cap absorption PCA events. The laboratory simulation utilized a waveguide which models VLF propagation in the earth-ionosphere cavity. The influence of the Greenland icecap is included in both the theoretical and experimental approaches.
