The Effect of Small-Scale Magnetic Structures on Inferred Solar Continuum Brightness

Average intensity of magnetic structures

Solar irradiance models indicate that irradiance variations are dominated by changes in disk-coverage of magnetic structures, whose brightness is thought to be determined by their size and average magnetic flux density.

The nighttime mesopause, marking the boundary of mesosphere and thermosphere and having the coldest atmospheric temperature, is formed mainly by the combination of radiative cooling by CO2, and the adiabatic flow in the Mesosphere and Lower Thermosphere.

Self-consistent modeling of electron precipitation and responses in the ionosphere

The time evolution of height-dependent (a) electron density, (b) ionization rate, (c) Pedersen conductivity, and (d) Hall conductivity at MLT = 6 and magnetic latitude of 60

Stan Solomon et al, dicuss a new modeling capability that self-consistently couples physics-based magnetospheric 18 electron precipitation with its impact on the ionosphere, representing a significant improvement over previous models.
