Dataset for Radio Science "Lower ionosphere effects on narrowband VLF transmission propagation: fast variabilities and frequency dependence"

The data are processed from electric field recordings from an array network and shows the disturbance on a VLF (very low frequency) transmission attributed to lower ionospheric electrical properties. The micro-second time resolution received transmission (filtered and frequency shifted to baseband) averaged across the receivers in the network are contained in a MatLab binary (.mat) file. The disturbance on the transmitted signal is obtained by comparing to a simulated transmission. The MatLab scripts to perform this processing are provided.
