Pagination or Media Count:
A theory of the type I electrojet instability is presented with consideration of the non-linear frequency shifts. It is shown that inclusion of the non-linear frequency shifts, provides the theoretical framework within which radar backscatter observations of vertical echoes and of the constant ion acoustic Doppler shift can be explained. Comparisons with a laboratory experiment are discussed.
