Abstract:

The DNA Project 617 incoherent-scatter radar has been operating at its Chatanika, Alaska location for eighteen months. This report describes the research studies pursued by SRI in 1972, including the following Investigation of high-latitude ionospheric plasma-transport phenomena Studies of ionospheric plasma interaction with the neutral atmosphere Studies of auroral ionization Correlative studies with the Homer Project 609 auroral clutter radar Radar measurements in support of rocket-borne experiments including ICE CAP 72 Diurnalseasonal behavior of the auroral ionosphere Measurements of the ionospheric effects of the August 1972 solar storm Effects of the 10 July 1972 total solar eclipse Investigation of ionospheric conditions responsible for spread-F.
