Ionospheric Research Using Satellites the Total Electron Content of the Ionosphere over Legon for the Year 1972.
Final scientific rept. 1 Jan 72-31 Dec 73,
GHANA UNIV LEGON DEPT OF PHYSICS
Pagination or Media Count:
Polarimeter measurements of the total Faraday rotation angle imposed by the ionosphere on the VHF signal radiated by ATS-3 have been used to determine the total columnar electron content of the ionosphere over Legon, Ghana, at ten minute intervals throughout the year 1972. The actual data are preceded by a brief discussion of the practical problem of determining the M value, correcting the polarimeter reading for satellite position, determining the polarimeter zero, and estimating the accuracy of the results.
