Radio Beacon for Ionospheric Tomography (RaBIT)

A unique dataset leading to ionospheric tomograms representing altitude-latitude variation of electron density over the 77oE meridian over the Indian region has been generated through RaBIT around specific times (~10:30 AM/PM). These tomograms have provided, among others: (a) First ever images of the ionospheric nighttime ESF irregularities (b) Quantification of the topside F3 ionospheric layers using Tomography (c) Evidence of wavelike modulations in the overall low and equatorial ionospheric region using tomography.
