Two‐dimensional observations of overshielding during a magnetic storm by the Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) Hokkaido radar
[1] Two-dimensional observations of ionospheric plasma flows possibly caused by overshielding are reported for the first time. The observations were made by the midlatitude Super Dual Auroral RadarExpand

Fate of outflowing suprathermal oxygen ions that originate in the polar ionosphere
[1] We investigate the transport and ultimate fate of outflowing suprathermal O+ ions by kinetic means using a full-particle tracing scheme. We launched O+ ions in order to determine their finalExpand
