Paper Abstract

Ionospheric observations are necessary as for research scientific problems as for practical purposes. Different ionospheric stations (AIS, Chirp-ionosounders, digisondes) are used widely for obtaining of information about ionosphere condition at the concrete time moments. The methods of ionogram registration of ionospheric stations can be distinguished, but ionogram processing and interpretation methods can be generally described by common regulations and manuals. Creation of unified universal program apparatus for interpretation of ionograms and application it independently from ionospheric stations type is logical in such situation. "SAO-Explorer" included in digisonde DPS-4 set is suggested as such apparatus. It allows carrying out complete processing of ionosphere vertical sounding ionograms, to obtain prediction meanings and to calculate electron density profile using International Reference Ionosphere IRI model also. By the example of Kamchatka's automatic ionosphere station it was shown that the data reformatting into the digisonde format and their following processing with a help of the program complex <> sufficiently facilitate and accelerate the interpretation process of vertical sounding ionograms. By such a way were prepared and processed the ionograms obtained during the period of 7-11 of November 2004. During this period the powerful magnetic storm generated the powerful negative ionosphere disturbance, which made worse the ionosphere structure. Here are shown the results of observations at the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatski and at the other VS-stations (Irkutsk, Yakutsk, Norilsk).
