|Abstract:||The Faraday Project is a theoretical and experimental research program to study properties of the ionosphere and the relationships of these properties with solar and geophysical phenomena. Experimental data for the study are pre sently being obtained by measuring the total electron content in a cylinder of unit area from Hawaii to a geostationary satellite, ATS-1. The total electron content is obtained from the polarization angle twist of VHF telemetry-carrier transmissions received from the satellite. The signal transmitted from the ATS-1 is linearly-polarized, but the polarizatJon angle of the received signal changes with time because it is rotated by its passage through the electron density of the ionosphere.|
