Re: Faraday Rotation calcs?

Hi Chris:

In case you haven't seen it, there is a good article on Faraday Rotation
by Frank Bauregger and Christine Law of Stanford Univ, in the
March/April issue of The AMSAT Journal.  Included are lots of neat
formulae and references.

Let me know if you are not an AMSAT-NA member and I will send you a copy
of the article.
