Statistical Moments and Scintillation Level of Scattered Electromagnetic Waves in the Magnetized plasma
Statistical characteristics of scattered ordinary and extraordinary electromagnetic waves in the magnetized plasma are considered using the smooth perturbation method. Diffraction effects and polarization coefficients are taken into account. Second order statistical moments of scattered radiation are obtained for arbitrary correlation function of electron density fluctuations. Broadening of the spatial power spectrum and displacement of its maximum, wave phase structure function and the angle-of-arrivals are obtained for three-dimensional spectral function containing anisotropic Gaussian and power-law spectral functions. Scintillation level of scattered radiation is analyzed for different parameters characterizing anisotropic plasma irregularities for the ionospheric F-region. The spectral widths (first and second moments) of the power spectrum and scintillation periods are calculated for "frozen-in" drifting elongated plasma irregularities using the experimental data.
