Abstract

In this chapter, we illustrate how remote sensing of auroral luminosity and the high-latitude ionosphere may be used to develop a synoptic interpretation of discrete auroral arcs. In favorable situations, in situ data of arcs may be combined with a full complement of remotely sensed data from visible and ultraviolet imagers on polar-orbiting satellites, ground-based all-sky and meridian-scanning photometer arrays, ground-based magnetometer arrays, coherent backscatter radar measurements of ionospheric convection, and incoherent-scatter radar measurements of the ionospheric density, velocity and temperature distribution.
