Changes in the thermosphere-ionosphere system caused by high-speed streams in the solar wind, and the co-rotating interaction regions they engender, were studied using a combination of CMIT and TIEGCM simulations and data analysis. 

Global ionospheric climatology

NmF2 climatology for 2007 to 2010 in magnetic latitude bins image
Friday, November 2, 2012

Extensive analyses of COSMIC data for 2007–2010 have revealed a number of features concerning seasonal and solar-cycle variation. Low-latitude ionospheric peak density NmF2 was dominated by the semi-annual anomaly, the equatorial anomaly and the annual asymmetry.
