Abstract

The subjects of this chapter are analytical and numerical models of electromagnetic wave propagation in flows of a slightly ionized plasma. The different shapes of a flow (cone, paraboloid, and a surface created by rotation of fourth-order curves) are addressed in this chapter. The indicatrices of turbulence reradiation (isotropic, Lambert, and quasi-mirror types) are considered. Calculations are used to determine the angular and frequency spectra of singly and multiply scattered signals. The calculated frequency spectrum of each scattering signal is compared with well-known experimental data from radio sounding of an exhaust plume of a spacecraft.
