Paper Abstract

The lower polar ionosphere research are carried out by the modified measuring complex of the observatory Tumanny (69.0 degree(s)N, 35.7 degree(s)E) since 1999. It were performed an analysis of the dynamical processes caused by the neutral gas motion, preliminary investigation of statistical and spectral characteristics of the backscattered waves and, furthermore, variations of the electron density were calculated. The areas, where the electron density irregularities with scales more than 100 m at heights from 70 till 99 km were groped, were detected by the spaced sensors measurements of the backscattered waves. During the solar eclipse of 1999 August 11 for the short time the increased radioecho intensity was observed at the heights near the mesopause.
