Some Studies on the Variation of Electron Collision Frequency and Absorption Coefficient Within the Anisotropic Atmosphere
The analytical form of absorption index appropriate to a certain range of height of the upper atmosphere plasma medium during ordinary wave propagation under quasi-transverse approximations has been utilized to develop an integral equation through Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin method of solution. The integral equation is useful for the determination of effective electron collision frequency. Numerical results are presented graphically along with the results of some earlier work.
