Abstract : This compilation of abstracts is based on Soviet open sources published 1965-66. It is the third 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 28 abstracts are arranged alphabetically by author within each of the following categories: ionosphere, exosphere, and magnetosphere (13 entries); ionospheric perturbations by explosions, satellite and missile passage, solar radiation, etc. (11 entries); satellite and missile experiments (1 entry); aurora and geomagnetic disturbances (3 entries). A bibliography is presented at the end of the report. Pertinent information included: F and E layers, wideband antenna, rate of ion formation at high altitudes, ionospheric inhomogeneities, solar x radiation, auroral absorption of radio waves, radar observation of aurora borealis.
