Galactic Electron Density

(density of electrons in the ISM)

The Galactic Electron Density (density of electrons in the Galaxy) is generally determined by analyzing Pulsar (PSR) signals. If HI Regions (HI) are identified in front of the pulsar, the analysis takes that into account. The factors revealing the electron density include the dispersion (Frequency-dependent delays), and Polarization.
