Abstract:

Hydromagnetic waves associated with Pc 1 geomagnetic micropulsations travelling the ionosphere should produce small ionospheric electrondensity fluctuations. A search was made for such fluctuations using a ground-based HF sounding technique, but none were detected. This result is discussed in terms of the maximum fluctuation amplitude expected and the limitations on experimental sensitivity.
