Title Multi-technique Studies of Ionospheric Plasma Structuring.
Publication Date Sep 2009
Media Count 6p
Personal Author S. Basu
Abstract Understanding physical processes that lead to plasma structuring in the equatorial, mid and high-latitude ionosphere. Identifying the effects of such variability, generally known as ionospheric space weather, on the operation of various communication, navigation and surveillance systems. Establish major drivers that lead to structured ionospheric plasma in equatorial, mid and high-latitude regions. Investigate cascading of plasma structuring from large (tilde hundreds of km) to small (tilde tens of m) scales, which cause outages in space-based communication and GPS-based navigation systems.
