Abstract:

The proposed research is to investigate energy deposition into the ionosphere I and thermosphere T system and related underlying physical processes during geomagnetic storms with the goal to improve current scientific understanding of high-latitude energetics by providing new insights. PI team has investigated a number of geomagnetic storms and magnetically disturbed time periods, and the various ionospheric plasma density features appearing such as storm enhanced density SED, mid-latitude trough, and polar tongue of ionization TOI.
