Paper Abstract

In this work the technique for reconstruction of height profile of electron density N(h) from oblique sounding data was applied to weakly oblique sounding data. During the calculations it was supposed that height-frequency characteristics (HFC), obtained at the short path (the path length is ~126 km), is equal to distance-frequency characteristics (DFC), which can be recalculated into HFC of path mid-point. Recalculating of DFC into HFC was made according to modified Smith method in frames of spherically symmetric ionosphere without consideration of Earth's magnetic field. The profile N(h) was reconstructed from recalculated HFC according to Huang-Reinisch method, which is widely used in world digisonde network. Results of comparison between reconstructed N(h)-profiles with profiles obtained according to observations data of FMCW-ionosonde of ISTP, obtained at weakly oblique sounding path Usolie-Tory, and Digisonde DPS-4 in Irkutsk, near the path mid-point, are presented.
