Paper Abstract

The peculiarities of the arrangement of Irkutsk incoherent scatter radar are those, that the direct measurements of signals from a range of heights lower 160 km, are impossible owing to reflections from an earthly surface. However at the analysis of experimental results the information on dynamics of particles density in the ionosphere E-layer, located usually at height 100 - 120 km is frequently necessary. A method is offered for indirect estimation of concentration in the given area on the basis of Faraday effect, which is used on the radar for determination of electron density.
