About this book

The purpose of this monograph is both to introduce and review developed tomograhic methods for discovering 2D and 3D structures of the ionosphere and to discuss the experimental implementation of these methods. The theoretical part deals with the solution of the inverse problem of diffraction tomography for a wide range of properties of ionospheric media. Examples are given to illustrate the experimental reconstruction of electron-density distributions in ionospheric sections. In addition to addressing the specialist researcher, the detailed derivations and explanations make this book an excellent starting point for nonspecialists and graduate students who wish to enter this exciting new field to which the authors have made pioneering contributions.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Ionospheric Tomography seeks to bring the reader up to the forefront of research into the subject and goes a long way to achieving this goal by providing an extensive bibliography and a detailed mathematical treatment of the key processes […] Kunitsyn and Tereshenko have produced a solid foundation on which further research activity can build with confidence […]." (Dr. N. Arnold (University of Leicester), Contemporary Physics 2004, vol. 45, page 353)

"Ionospheric Tomography seeks to bring the reader up to the forefront of research into the subject and goes a long way to achieving this goal by providing an extensive bibliography and a detailed mathematical treatment of the key processes. The book is an invaluable reference tool for any serious student of the subject … . Considerable care has been taken in the preparation of the text. Kunitsyn and Tereshenko have produced a solid foundation on which further research activity can build with confidence … ." (Dr. N. Arnold, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 45 (4), 2004)

"This very good book is devoted to a part of ionospheric remote sensing and addressed to third cycle’s students or interested researchers. … This book is worthwhile the price as the expert authors made a great job always keeping the physics in view. … It is a very good source book at the doctoral level in the related domain." (Jean-Claude Jodogne, Physicalia, Vol. 26 (1), 2004)

"This book provides a comprehensive coverage of tomographic techniques applied to satellite signals to determine ionospheric structure. The theoretical developments are quite detailed, and include valuable discussions of strengths and weaknesses of various methods well-known in the scientific literature. … This book is primarily aimed at the ionospheric radio research community and because of its comprehensive treatment it should become an important reference, particularly for those using trans-ionospheric radio techniques." (P L Dyson, The Physicist, Vol. 4 (2), 2004)
