    The jovian ring was discovered as the result of a concerted search by the Voyager 1 cameras as the spacecraft passed Jupiter on March 4, (Smith et al., b).Voyager’s wide- and narrow-angle cameras were targeted at the ring plane and exposed for 11 minutes.

Almost 40 years ago the concept of the substorm current wedge was developed to explain the magnetic signatures observed on the ground and in geosynchronous orbit during substorm expansion.

Observations have shown that in rare cases the ESF density depletions can reach high altitudes and extend to the equatorial anomaly latitudes. For example, satellite measurements showed that the ESF plasma depletions may reach apex altitude of km (Burke et al., ; Obara and Oya, ; Ma and Marayama, ; Huang et al., Cited by: 3.

Abstract. Observations using a narrow spectral band ( nm) airglow photometer with a narrow field-of-view (3°) developed recently enabled to capture the impact of space weather events on neutral airglow emission over low latitudes and also opened up new vistas to characterize different plasma structures associated with Equatorial Spread F (ESF).Author: R.

Sekar, D. Chakrabarty. The NRL pulsed plasma probe experiment was successfully flown on each of the two PLUMEX rockets during July The experiment provided direct measurements of absolute density N(e), temperature T(e) and density fluctuation power spectra with a maximum Nyquist frequency of 1 KHz (1 meter resolution at a 1 km/sec rocket velocity).

Above km altitude this effect can be important: at high latitudes winds are common that approach the rapid velocity of the convecting plasma (e.g., Meriwether, ), while at low latitudes, where plasma drifts are much smaller, the collisional interaction tends to retard the winds driven by pressure gradients.

As a result of intensive study of ground-based observations, many of the magnetic. The space station is in a Low Earth Orbit and can be seen from Earth with the naked eye. It orbits at an altitude of approximately km ( nautical miles) above the surface of the Earth, traveling at an average speed of 27, kilometers (17, mi) per hour and completing orbits per day.

The seasonal variation of TEC determined from the differential Doppler measurements of HiLat transmissions is discussed in relation to the in-situ density measurements at km. The results are also used to illustrate the dependence of ionospheric structure parameters on short-term variability of solar activity during the sunspot-minimum period.

If the phase measurements f 2 and f 1 were taken after successive pulses at a time delay corresponding to a range of km (at least one sample of the received echo must be made during each pulse width, i.e., at a rate equal to or greater than the system bandwidth, see Equation 1–4), one would conclude that there is an extra 2p in the phase.
