A method for the estimation of electron density from the ratio of the wave magnetic and electric field amplitude of whistler waves is developed. Near the geomagnetic equator, whistler wave normals are mainly close to the direction of the background magnetic field. Dispersion relation of whistler wave in the parallel propagation approximation is used in this method. Signals registered by STAFF-SA instrument on board the Cluster spacecraft are used for electron density reconstruction. The Cluster…
