Abstract : A new technique has been developed for determining nose frequencies and time delays at the nose frequency for propagation paths in the outer magnetosphere. The computed normalized whistler shape is plotted on a log-log scale, allowing the nose frequency and nose time delay to be found very simply by an overlay method, from measurements of time delays at any two other frequencies. The versatility and simplicity of this method make it particularly suited for use with periodic v.l.f. emissions. (Author)
