Paper Abstract

In March and August/September 1995, February 1996, and in March-April 1998, observations of the inhomogeneous structure of the high-latitude ionosphere were carried out at Norilsk (geomagnetic latitude and longitude are 64.2 and 160.4, and L equals 5.3). Small-scale irregularities (with the lifetime of several seconds, and the spatial scale less than 5-7 km), and medium-size wave irregularities (with the period of 10 - 50 min, and the horizontal size of tens and hundreds of kilometers) of the ionospheric F layer were investigated under different geophysical conditions. A total of 300 hours of observations was recorded, including 250 reflections from the F2 layer, and the other reflections from the sporadic E layer.
