Abstract:

The document reports the results of a coordinated program of ionospheric observations pertaining to high-latitude geoacoustics research. The program consisted of two types of measurements, aimed respectively at study of Auroral Infrasonic Waves AIWs and Traveling Ionospheric Disturbances TIDs. Understanding these two phenomena is relevant to the problem of detecting and interpreting remote, man-made atmospheric pressure disturbances such as those that result from nuclear detonations.
