Traveling ionospheric disturbances (TIDs) are one particular type of the Earth’s ionosphere irregularities (Hunsucker, 1982). They represent wave-like electron density structures propagating in the ionosphere. The motion of TIDs modulates the electron density distribution in space. It leads to a modification of plasma parameters, namely the refractive index, and affects the propagation of radio waves. In particular cases, the variations of plasma parameters strongly affect the lower-frequency electromagnetic waves that […]
