The work describes several theories that make use of a radio wave partially reflected from the D-region of the earths ionosphere. Firstly, a new form of pulsed wave interaction experiment is proposed, which uses a probing wave that is partially reflected within a region heated by an independent ground-based high-power RF source. Secondly, the effects of self-heating on the usual partial reflection experiment are examined. Lastly, an analytical electron density synthesis technique is presented for the partial reflection experiment. This reduction method is based on volume reflection theory and makes use of only ordinary mode data. Modified author abstract
