Dispersion Measure (scintillometry.dm)

Radio waves travelling through ionized interstellar medium experience a frequency-dependent slowing of the signal group velocity known as dispersion. The dm module provides functionality for storing and utilizing the dispersion measure, which is related to the delay in arrival time of radio signals due to the cumulative effects of dispersion.
