The users manual describes the use and algorithms of the FORTRAN 4 programs written to analyze data from a thin boundary layer plasma experiment. The experiment consists of an onboard measurement at two or three frequencies of the aperture reflection coefficient of a flush mounted rectangular aperture using a five probe reflectometer. The five probe voltages are used to calculate a reflection coefficient which is transformed through an inhomogeneous dielectric filled waveguide to the aperture. The measured aperture reflection coefficient is compared to aperture reflection coefficients calculated for an exponential model plasma and stored in a table to obtain a minimum mean square error fit.
