Abstract:

Ground based and airborne measurements of auroral emissions in ionospheric structure in the polar cap, conducted by the AFGL airborne ionospheric Observatory AIO, have shown the structure and drift of polar cap F-layer auroras. Results from these measurements show three types of polar cap ionospheric structure. In this paper we briefly describe auroral dynamics measured by an All-Sky Imaging Photometer ASIP. These optical measurements provide a framework in which to interpret the ionospheric sounder data from the Digisonde 128 PS. Author
