Abstract:

The status of recent experimental and theoretical research on small-scale, field-aligned, ionospheric plasma density irregularities is reviewed. The key advances are satellite measurements of the wave-number spectrum, the introduction of computational simulation studies of the nonlinear dynamics, and the development of global models to assess the impact on communications.
