Conference paper


Solar wind observations by means of bi-static decametric radar SURA-WIND allow studying a fine structure of solar wind plasma irregularities with resolution up to 40 km. Spectral analysis and Hurst exponents method were applied to analyze the scintillation of radio signal transmitted through turbulent layers of Ionosphere and Solar wind plasma.
