Long-lasting response of the global thermosphere and ionosphere to the 21 August 2017 solar eclipse

Long-lasting response of the global thermosphere and ionosphere
Sunday, August 5, 2018

Explains Wenbin Wang and others, previous studies have been devoted to examining the ionosphere and thermosphere response during the solar eclipse, but the post-eclipse response of the global ionosphere and thermosphere has not previously been well quantified.

Global responses of the coupled thermosphere and ionosphere system to the August 2017 great American solar eclipse

It is commonly believed that solar eclipses have a great impact on the ionosphere-thermosphere (I-T) system within the eclipse shadow, but little attention has been paid to the global responses to them.
