Abstract : This compilation of abstracts is based on Soviet-Satellite open sources published 1964-1965. It is the first in a series of reports reviewing Soviet research on electromagnetic wave propagation and the upper atmosphere. Information not directly related to the assigned subject has been included because of its broad implications for study in this field. The 85 entries are arranged alphabetically by author within each of the following categories: ionosphere and EM wave propagation (27 entries), solar and cosmic radiation effects on the ionosphere and the geomagnetic field (34 entries), geomagnetism and whistlers (13 entries), effect of nuclear bursts on EM wave propagation (1 entry), aurora and EM wave propagation (7 entries), and over-the-horizon propagation studies (3 entries). The bibliography contains 85 entries. Other pertinent information included: experiments and measurements conducted by means of the Electron satellites, radio astronomy, ionospheric inhomogeneities, ionospheric currents and winds, solar radio emission, solar flares, atmospherics, magnetic storms, ionospheric backscatter.
