Abstract:

The mathematical form of the diffusion operator is derived for motion of electrons along the lines of force of a dipole approximation to the geomagnetic field. The earths atmosphere is assumed to be isothermal and horizontally stratified. A table is given of the various forms of the diffusion operator in different independent coordinates. The results are applied briefly to a discussion of the form of the boundary condition at great height in the F2 region. Author
