In order to truly understand data signals transmitted by satellite,one must understand scintillation theory in addition to wellestablished theories of EM wave propagation and scattering.Scintillation is a nuisance in satellite EM communications, but ithas stimulated numerous theoretical developments with scienceapplications. This book not only presents a thorough theoreticalexplanation of scintillation, but it also offers a complete libraryof MATLAB codes that will reproduce the book examples. The libraryincludes GPS coordinate manipulations, satellite orbitprediction, and earth mean magnetic field computations. The subect matter is for EM researchers however, also theory isrelevant to geophysics, acoustics, optics and astoronomy.
