  • Modulated high frequency radio frequency heating of the ionospheric F-region produces a local modulation of the electron temperature, and the resulting pressure gradient gives rise to a diamagnetic current. The oscillations of the diamagnetic current excite hydromagnetic waves in the ELF range that propagate away from the heated region. The generation of the waves in the 2 - 10 Hz range by a modulated heating in the midlatitude ionosphere is studied using numerical simulations of a collisional… CONTINUE READING
