Swept-frequency traces of minimum group-path length in backscatter-radar ionograms, computed for a measured three-dimensional electron distribution in the midnight sector of the polar ionosphere, are presented. Also presented are minimum group-path traces computed for trial electron distributions chosen to simulate the group-path traces of the measured electron distribution, and to show the effects on the group-path traces as consequences of variations made upon major features of the trial electron distributions.
