Large-aperture radars detect the high-density plasma that forms in the vicinity of a meteoroid and moves approximately at its reflections from these plasmas are called head echoes. To determine the head plasma density and configuration, we model the of a radar wave with the plasma without using assumptions about plasma density. This paper presents a scattering method tha to convert measurements of radar cross-section (RCS) from a head echo into plasma density by applying a spherical scattering… CONTINUE READING
