The recent addition of two radars to the existing network of six Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) HF radars in the Northern Hemisphere has significantly extended the area in the high latitude where measurements of convecting ionospheric plasma are made. We show that the distribution of the electrostatic potential ß associated with the "E x B" drift of ionospheric plasma can be reliably mapped on global scales when velocity measurments provide sufficient coverage. The global… CONTINUE READING
