On the theory of instability in an ionospheric current jet

  • D. S. Kotik


The generation of potential waves by a transverse current is considered in the region of an ionospheric electrojet. The numerical method is used to solve the dispersion equation for the case of weak currents and low growth rates. The region of low hybrid resonance is investigated analytically; the dispersion curves and the dependence of the growth rates on the wave number and the parameters of the ionospheric plasma are found.
