Abstract
The problem of correct ion and electron temperatures yielded on Irkutsk Incoherent Scatter Radar (IISR) is actually prominent. The existing algorithms of temperatures reconstruction on the IISR data counts out some constructive peculiarities of the radar, what can lead to increase of systematic errors. The obtained height and time profiles of ion temperatures do not suffice the ones expected on the basis of comprehensive concepts and experimental data of other facilities (e.g. Millstone Hill Incoherent Scatter Radar). The Faraday Effect on height power profile of the backscattered signal is assumed to be the key factor of this discrepancy. Allowance for this effect results in considerable complication of the inverse problem. In the present paper, the technique for systematic error estimation and correction based on direct model of backscattered signal was proposed.
