Abstract:

An ionospheric propagation prediction method is proposed that is more responsive than current methods to the actual propagation channel of a radio wave. These other methods typically use an average propagation channel. The range of conditions that comprise this average, when considered separately, can potentially lead to quite different predictions of the propagation channel relative to the average alone. Thus, to the extent that a real-time trend in the propagation channel can be established or that correlations with other observables can be determined, better predictions can be obtained.
