The Kriging method of ionospheric parameter f0F2 instantaneous mapping

I. Stanislawska, G. Juchnikowski, L. R. Cander


This paper discusses the spatial variation of the ionospheric characteristic f0F2 in the PRIME area (35o-55o N,- 10°-20°E) expressed in terms of the variogram and the Kriging mapping method as modelling of an instantaneous experimental situation. It is shown that by applying this method to the real data it is possible to estimate f0F2 at any unsampled location within the restricted area with satisfactory accuracy.
