Chatanika Radar Measurements

  • Vincent B. Wickwar
Part of the Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 51)


The auroral ionosphere often differs from the mid- and low-latitude ionosphere due to the influx of energetic particles (primarily electrons) and the mapping of convection electric fields down the magnetic field lines from the magnetosphere. The auroral ionosphere can significantly affect the neutral atmosphere above about 100 km. This paper presents Chatanika Radar measurements related to the physics and chemistry of the atmosphere.
