ionospheric turbulence
Ongoing disturbances of the ionosphere that scatter incident electromagnetic waves. Note: Ionospheric turbulence results in irregularities in the composition of the ionosphere that change with time. This causes changes in reflection properties. These, in turn, cause changes in skip distance, fading, local intensification, and distortion of the incident waves. [From Weik '89]
