- Keyword(s): METEOROID STREAMS, LYRIDS, FORWARD-SCATTER SYSTEM
- Pages: 97 -- 103
Lyrid meteoroid stream data obtained by a forward-scatter radio equipment
in 1992--1996 are analyzed and discussed from the point of view of the mass
distribution of meteoroids in the stream. The mass exponent of the Lyrids was
found to be s = 1.93 which is a higher value than the value derived from
previous backscatter observations and is in a substantially better agreement
with the population index "r" resulting from visual observations.
