CHJ thanks Paul Hancock for providing data containing ionospheric activity early in the pipeline development, and discussing techniques on identifying ionospheric structure. Computation was aided with the PYTHON libraries NUMPY (Walt, Colbert & Varoquaux 2011), SCIPY (Jones et al. 2001) and ASTROPY (Astropy Collaboration et al. 2013). In addition, was used MATPLOTLIB to generate the figures presented in this publication (Hunter 2007).
