A study of global (Very Low Frequency) VLF propagation with emphasis on the effects of stratospheric ionisation and glacial ice in Antarctica
Entry ID: K138_1992_1993_NZ_1

Summary
Abstract: The performance of GPS navigation equipment for possible future deployment on Antarctic resupply flights was investigated. In addition, using Hercules C-130 aircrafts fitted with GPS, VLF propagation studies in the Antarctic region and studies of antipodally propagating VLF signals during flights to Antarctica was investigated. VLF/GPS receivers were installed on the RNZAF resupply aircrafts and recordings were made on all available New Zealand flights to the Antarctic.
