Abstract:

A computer program which calculates electron and ion densities, ionospheric conductivities, electric fields and currents, and magnetic variations in regions near the magnetic equator is described in detail. It is also explained how this numerical model can be used to deduce F-region vertical plasma drifts in the equatorial ionosphere from observed magnetic variations at ground level. Author
