How can parameters of the ionosphere be calculated? Specifically, how do we calculate total ion density, total ion temperature and individual major ion densities from I-V Characteristics curve of ionospheric plasma. The I-V characteristics curve is obtained using ion Retarding Potential Analyzer (RPA) onboard a spacecraft.
