Abstract:

This final report covers a wide area of Ionospheric research conducted by the Center for Atmospheric Research of the University of Massachusetts in support of the USAFs operational and research interests, the Air Forces global ionospheric sounding network and the Phillips Laboratory Airborne Ionospheric Observatory. The research efforts covered ionospheric modeling and mapping, the study of the physics of the ionosphere in both the polar and equatorial regions and the study of ionospheric structures that range over scales from hundreds of thousands of kilometers at the high end down to small-scale irregularities of the order of tens of meters at the other end of the spectrum.
