Abstract:

A method is described for the implementation of a time dependent striation structure and convection model into an existing systems code. The purpose is to update estimates of the scintillation effects of the structuring of the ionization of high altitude nuclear bursts on satellite radio signals. The structure and convection model is an extrapolation of the results of a numerical calculation for an idealized situation to the nuclear case combined with a late time bifurcation model.
