A simple model of the vertical distribution of electron concentration in the ionosphere
An idealized model of the vertical distribution of the electron concentration in the E- and F-regions of the ionosphere is developed in which the model parameters are given by simple empirical expressions in terms of the characteristics conventionally measured at ionospheric observatories. Differences in the heights with a given electron concentration, as indicated by the model and by true-height profile analyses, are usually 20 km or less.
