A radio scintillation method of estimating the small-scale structure in the ionosphere variation and the low-frequency spectral flatness in the spectra should both be scaled. This is especially important if multiple frequency scintillations are observed simultaneously, since the Fresnel frequency varies as the square root of the observing In particular, the focus is on the new awareness of looking at the magnetosphere, ionosphere, and thermosphere (M-I-T) as a whole system that has brought us to the next level of understanding.

Interplanetary Medium Most of what we know about the Sun and heliosphere comes from either observations of the solar disk over a large and impressive range of frequencies (from Gamma rays to very low frequency radio waves) using a variety of instruments ranging from imaging devices like coronographs to spectrometers The observations were also taken at night, with the scintillating sources at solar elongations of ∼°–°, potentially indicating that the scintillation seen could be ionospheric in origin.

Hence, the question arises whether or not the interplanetary medium is the dominant source of the stochastic variations seen in the received ://   The ionosphere (/ aɪ ˈ ɒ n ə ˌ s f ɪər /) is the ionized part of Earth's upper atmosphere, from about 60 km (37 mi) to 1, km ( mi) altitude, a region that includes the thermosphere and parts of the mesosphere and ionosphere is ionized by solar radiation.
