Abstract

Information derived from tomographic images has demonstrated the extreme variability of the ionosphere over the UK, with structures within the electron concentration usually associated with the auroral zone being found at UK latitudes under disturbed geomagnetic conditions. With enhanced geomagnetic disturbance the progression of the trough to lower latitudes is evidenced, while extremely disturbed conditions result in the trough minimum being as far south as Northern France. Ray tracing thorugh the resulting tomographic images and the model of the mid-latitude trough has direct applications for the near-real-time determination of radio propagation conditions.
