Abstract:

This report results from a contract tasking University of Oslo as follows The contractor will investigate disturbances in the polar ionosphere caused by fluctuating solar winds. In particular, he will attempt to accurately locate the boundary between open and closed magnetic field lines and then determine which processes occur on each of the field lines. These measurements will be made during quiet and disturbed conditions. The final report will contain an analysis of these measurements.
