|Title:||Professor S K Mitra and Ionosphere Research in India|
|Authors:||Saha, A K|
|Abstract:||An attempt is made to trace the growth of ionosphere research in India from its beginnings with Professor S.K. Mitra, at the University of Calcutta, through proliferated activities in the 1950s and 1960s. The early experiments and the topics of investigations taken up by the group with Professor S.K. Mitra, as well as by other groups in India that have grown during this period are discussed. The environment that existed in the laboratory of Professor S.K. Mitra is also described. This brings in some of his students and coworkers, the foresight of Professor S.K. Mitra, in the planning of the book on Upper Atmosphere and his plea for experimental space research in India, that came to fruition in later years.|
