The investigation of whistlers and related phenomena is a key element in studies of very-low-frequency propagation, satellite communication, the outer ionosphere, and solar-terrestrial relationships. This comprehensive text presents a history of the study of the phenomena and includes all the elements necessary for the calculation of the characteristics of whistlers and whistler-mode signals.
An introduction and brief history are followed by a summary of the theory of whistlers and a detailed explanation of the calculation of their characteristics. Succeeding chapters offer a complete atlas of a variety of whistlers, including those observed in satellites and those generated by nuclear explosions; the results of satellite observation of whistler-mode propagation; the method of reducing whistler data and obtaining electron density information; a full atlas of the various kinds of emissions; and an outline and comparison of the theories of generation of emissions.
