EFFECTS OF HIGH LATITUDE GEOPHYSICAL EVENTS IN THE AERONAUTICAL RADIO FREQUENCY BANDS

The aim of the task is to 'formulate a plan for and begin to search, extract, interpret, correlate, and display solar/geophysical disturbance description and impact on radio services' in various aeronautical-service frequency bands from 10 KHz to 300 GHz. It qualitatively describes the sort of data available and some of the possible ways the data can be presented. A description of radio effects caused by various phenomena is compiled from past work done primarily by Geophysical Institute personnel in the frequency range 10 KHz to 1.5 GHz as illustrative examples. These results are presented in tables that illustrate both the temporal and frequency effects of each of the geophysical phenomena considered. It is concluded that a more thorough study of the literature could provide the material necessary for a practical high-latitude communications handbook for airmen.
