Abstract:

Numerical simulations of ionospheric plasma clouds yield information for four related purposes To interpret past barium cloud experiments To predict phenomena in new experiments To validate algorithms used in system codes which determine the life-time of sky regions occluded by striations following a nuclear explosion and To predict the temporal evolution of the spectrum of electron-density fluctuations EDFs for use in propagation studies. In this memorandum we study the spectrum of simple geometric figures that have shapes similar to those that arise in the evolution of ionospheric plasma clouds.
