Abstract:

The automatic processing of ionograms from raw data as collected by a digital ionospheric sounder to electron density profiles has been successfully demonstrated using both daytime and nighttime records. The program is not limited to the production of electron density profiles it is flexible and has the following options 1 A filtered ionogram output, where the unwanted noise has been eliminated only the wanted signal 2 A tabulation of ionospheric parameters such as critical frequencies, virtual heights, and the MUF 3000 3 A tabulation of hf points for recreating an ionogram 4 A tabulated output of true height vs electron density.
