Nicholas Pedatella, Distinguished Young Scientist

Nicholas Pedatella of the High Altitude Observatory is the recipient of the SCOSTEP Distinguished Young Scientist Award for 2016.

Joseph McInerney

Joe McInerney is an Associate Scientist in the High Altitude Observatory of NCAR specializing in the development of, and validation of simulations from, upper atmosphere and ionosphere physics and chemistry models.

Qian Wu

Dr. Qian Wu is a Project Scientist IV at the High Altitude Observatory at NCAR. He specializes in observations of mesospheric and thermospheric winds from balloon-borne, space-borne, and ground based Fabry-Perot interferometer (FPI) to study gravity waves and tides.

Michael Wiltberger

Dr. Wiltberger works is the HAO Deputy Director and research Senior Scientist within the High Altitude Observatory whose main area of research is the modeling of the magnetosphere and its interaction with the solar wind and coupled thermosphere-ionosphere system.

Liying Qian

Dr. Liying Qian is a Project Scientist in the High Altitude Observatory of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. She studies space weather impact on the thermosphere and ionosphere.

Dependence of solar-wind/magnetosphere/ionosphere coupling on the geomagnetic dipole strength

The possible effects of geomagnetic-field changes over periods of millennia on solar wind/magnetosphere/ionosphere/thermosphere coupling was examined, by altering the strength of the geomagnetic dipole in the Coupled Magnetosphere-Ionosphere-Thermosphere (CMIT) model.

Impact of high-speed streams and co-rotating interaction regions on the thermosphere-ionosphere

Friday, November 2, 2012

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.
