By monitoring the amount of Faraday rotation a plane polarized satellite signal experiences in traversing the ionosphere, it is possible to measure the total number of electrons in a column of unit cross section through the Earths ionosphere. Report discusses Ground-based total electron count observations and the Skylab launch electron loss mechanisms in the F-region diffusion of the Saturn V S-II plume in the ionosphere ionosonde observations and estimates of photochemical and aeronomic processes capable of depleting the expanding plume.
