Ground-based Radar Detection of the inner Boundary of the Ion Plasma Sheet and its Response to the Changes in the Interplanetary Magnetic Field

SuperDARN is an array of HF radars, which covers most of the northern and southern high-latitude regions. The primary goal of this array is to study the dynamics of the large-scale convection pattern in order to understand the Solar wind – MagnetosphereIonosphere coupling (SW-M-I). Wide area coverage of the SuperDARN radars made it possible to detect some… CONTINUE READING
