Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS Understanding physical processes that leads to plasma structuring in the equatorial, mid and high-latitude ionosphere. Identifying the effects of such variability, generally known as ionospheric space weather, on the operation of various communication, navigation and surveillance systems. OBJECTIVES Establish major drivers that lead to structured ionospheric plasma in equatorial, mid and high-latitude regions. Investigate cascading of plasma structuring from large hundreds of km to small scales tens of m, which cause outages in space-based communication and GPS-based navigation systems.
