Paper Abstract

The generalized results of electron density (Ne) measurements collected by the incoherent scatter method at the Institute of Solar-Terrestrial Physics (Irkutsk, Russia) at height range 200 km are studied. The approach based on the generalization of N with the help of a semi-empirical model describing the connection of Ne with the thermosphere characteristic is used. The last is derived from MSIS-86 thermosphere model. The received model allows calculating Ne for the Millstone-Hill coordinates and comparing the results with Local Model developed on the base of 30-year measurements for this incoherent scatter radar. The conclusion is made about the representativity of Ne (200) measurement sin Irkutsk and validity of these data for generalization into the semi-empirical model.
