Atmospheric Pressure and the Ionisation of the Kennelly-Heaviside Layer

  title={Atmospheric Pressure and the Ionisation of the Kennelly-Heaviside Layer},
  author={D. Martyn},
EVIDENCE of a connexion between meteorological conditions in the troposphere, and the behaviour of radio waves reflected from the Kennelly-Heaviside layer has been noted by Colwell1 in America and by Ranzi2 in Italy. Again, Stagg3 has discovered a relation between the diurnal variation of barometric pressure at Aberdeen and the general state of magnetic conditions over the earth. There appears little doubt that some relation exists between conditions in the troposphere and the ionosphere.

Nocturnal Ionization in the F 2 Ionospheric Region
A critical survey was made of the upper atmosphere to an altitude of 300 km, reviewing present knowledge on such factors as composition, winds, temperature, pressuree and diffusion. On the basis ofExpand
Infrasonic oscillations in the F 2 region associated with severe thunderstorms
Phase path variations of F2 region echoes on 5.6 MHz over Waltair (17°43′N; 83°18′ E) are found to exhibit prominent short-period reversals on some occasions during summer evening hours. The observedExpand
Production and prediction of sporadic E
This is a survey of the experimental observations and theories of formation of all types of sporadic E. The wind-shear theory is most likely to explain temperate-zone sporadic E. In the equatorialExpand
The Daylight Variation of Signal Strength
A rapidly moving recording galvanometer (Micromax) is used to maintain balance in a Wheatstone bridge. Received radio signals unbalance this bridge, so that an automatic record of voltage signalExpand


Atmospheric Conditions and the Kennelly-Heaviside Layer
SINCE 1925, I have made observations upon the signal strength of KDKA in Pittsburg. The observing station at Morgantown, West Virginia, is sixty miles due south of KDKA. My results are in completeExpand
Atmospheric Pressure and the State of the Earth's Magnetism.

An Optically Active Inorganic Salt
IN 1914, Werner1 described the resolution into optically active forms of dodecammine-hexol-tetra-cobaltic hexabromide, [Co[(HO)2Co(NH3)4]3]Br6. This has remained until recently the only example of anExpand
