  • The spatial distribution of hydrogen ions at topside ionosphere in local daytime
    Author:
    • Peak H+ ions occur at winter hemisphere in topside ionosphere in local daytime
    • Solstitial asymmetry in H+ is enhanced at DEMETER altitude
    • The transition height reduces quickly at 10-20°N in solar minimum
    • Author(s): Xuhui Shen and Xuemin Zhang
    • DOI: 10.3319/TAO.2017.06.30.01

  • GPS TEC fluctuations over Tromsø, Norway, in the solar minimum
    Author:
    • Fp ≥ 50 occurs when irregularities distribute in the E region or in the E and F regions
    • Strong irregularities (Fp ≥ 200) almost only occur in the magnetic disturbance period
    • The Fp variation relates to the sunlight and the magnetotail geometry
    • Author(s): Wei-Sheng Chen, Chien-Chih Lee, Fang-Dar Chu, and Wai-Leong Teh
    • DOI: 10.3319/TAO.2017.04.24.01
    • Keywords: TEC fluctuations, Aurora, Highlatitude irregularities
    • Citation: Chen, W.-S., C.-C. Lee, F.-D. Chu, and W.-L. Teh, 2017: GPS TEC fluctuations over Tromsø, Norway, in the solar minimum. Terr. Atmos. Ocean. Sci., 28, 993-1008, doi: 10.3319/TAO.2017.04.24.01
