Abstract:

This paper is continued investigations of propagation of disturbances of plasma concentration in the topside ionosphere. A mathematical modeling of the nonlinear stage of instability development has been carried out. It is shown that in the region of a maximum enhancement of perturbations, the relative fluctuations of plasma density can make up several tens of percent.
