Abstract:

The purpose of the report is to present a number of results regarding errors in radar measurements produced by propagation through the ionosphere. The emphasis is on the dependence of these errors on radar frequency, and on the possibility of determining and removing the errors by making simultaneous measurements at two radar frequencies. The ionospheric effects discussed are those on radar range, elevation angle, coherent doppler velocity, pulse shape, and wave polarization.
