Abstract

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. The expressions of the broadening of the spatial power spectrum and displacement of its maximum are obtained. Wave structure functions and the angle of arrivals are calculated. Scintillation level of scattered radiation is analyzed for different parameters characterizing anisotropic plasma irregularities for the ionospheric F-region. Numerical calculations of the statistical characteristics are carried out for the three-dimensional spectral function containing anisotropic Gaussian and power-law spectral functions using the experimental data.
