Abstract:

Resonant responses observed by the topside ionosonde in the Canadian satellite Alouette II are examined. In addition to the well-known plasma resonances, several subsidiary resonances are identified below the electron cyclotron frequency. Their patterns of occurrence are not consistent with a suggested explanation of induced magnetic dipole radiation rather they appear to result from harmonic stimulation of the plasma resonances and beat-frequency generation.
