Abstract:

An automated objective analysis procedure was developed to represent the global distribution of selected ionospheric parameters on a daily basis. The analysis scheme enables the incorporation of observations or predictions of ionospheric parameters from random locations on the globle into a synoptic mapping technique that yields updated values of the parameters at specific grid points. In this report, the steps taken in the development of the analysis procedure and the accuracy of the results of global mapping of the F2 region critical frequency are described. Author
