High-latitude ionospheric conductivity variability in three dimensions

Monday, August 8, 2016

We perform the first ever global-scale, altitude-dependent analysis of polar ionospheric conductivity variability using spectrally-resolved in-situ satellite particle measurements.  Our results show that height-integrated conductance and height-dependent conductivities are distinctly different.
