Abstract:

INVERT is a FORTRAN computer program designed to study the feasibility of obtaining electron density distributions of the D-region of the ionosphere. These electron density profiles would be derived from measurements of ionospheric reflection coefficients. The radio propagation frequencies would be limited to the VLF band, particularly 3-20 kHz. This report contains a discussion of the analytical approach taken in INVERT, a FORTRAN listing of the program, instructions for using the program and some sample calculations using simulated data. The program has not been used with real data. Author
