This report examines the factors involved in the derivation of temperature information from Chatanika radar data by means of a least-squares fitting of theoretical autocorrelation functions ACF to the measured ACFs. The combined influence of these factors and the range of possible interpretations is shown for models of the auroral and daytime ionospheres. Finally, an indication is given of what remains to be examined and done to fully implement the least-squares fitting procedure. Modified author abstract
