Abstract:

This report is intended to serve as supporting documentation for an accompanying magnetic tape which contains realizations of signals resulting from propagation through a striated ionosphere parameterized as fifteen different cases of carrier frequency and electron-density variance. The signals were generated with a Multiple Phase-Screen MPS computer code, and the simulated cases range, in their levels of effect, from very weakly scattered cases to those where the signals display intensity profiles characteristic of Rayleigh amplitude fluctuations. This report details what is represented on the magnetic tape and provides information regarding its use. The appendices present supplementary material on the MPS techniques, provide example software that may be used to read realization data, and summarize the MPS runs with plots and tables.
