Refractive Interstellar Scintillation

(RISS)
(refraction of star light by the ISM)

Refractive Interstellar Scintillation (RISS) is scintillation (twinkling) of stars due to refraction in the Interstellar Medium (ISM), particularly, discontinuities in the ionization. It has been studied through analysis of Pulsar (PSR) timing.
