[1] Development or inhibition of ESF during magnetically active periods has been an important space weather topic of interest during the recent past in view of its applications in the satellite based navigational systems. Particularly, the postsunset period exhibits significant variability for storm time development of ESF versus longitude. In this paper, we report the results of a multi-instrumental (ground based and space-borne) and multistation study on the development/inhibition of… 

Midlatitude postsunset plasma bubbles observed over Europe during intense storms in April 2000 and 2001

Plasma bubbles are prevalent features of the equatorial/low‐latitude ionosphere which are seldom observed at middle and high latitudes. Understanding the influence of geomagnetic storms on plasma

Longitudinal development of low‐latitude ionospheric irregularities during the geomagnetic storms of July 2004

[1] During the period 22–28 July 2004, three geomagnetic storms occurred due to a sequence of coronal mass ejections. In this paper we present and discuss the ionospheric observations from a set of

Storm‐Enhanced Development of Postsunset Equatorial Plasma Bubbles Around the Meridian 120°E/60°W on 7–8 September 2017

Storm time development of equatorial plasma bubbles (EPBs) around the meridian 120°E/60°W during early September 2017, when the Bz component of interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) experienced two

Annales Geophysicae Geomagnetic storm effects on GPS based navigation

The energetic events on the sun, solar wind and subsequent effects on the Earth’s geomagnetic field and upper atmosphere (ionosphere) comprise space weather. Modern navigation systems that use

Investigation of Ionospheric Response to Geomagnetic Storms over a Low Latitude Station, Ile-Ife, Nigeria

Due to several complexities associated with the equatorial ionosphere, and the significant role which the total electron content (TEC) variability plays in GPS signal transmission, there is the need

Observations of equatorial plasma bubbles during the geomagnetic storm of October 2016

We investigated the variations of equatorial plasma bubbles (EPBs) in the East‐Asian sector during a strong geomagnetic storm in October 2016, based on observations from the Beidou geostationary

TEC response during severe geomagnetic storms near the crest of equatorial ionization anomaly

The responses of the ionosphere near equatorial anomaly crest as observed at Bhopal (geographic 23.2°N, 77.4°E, and magnetic latitude 14.2°N), India for geomagnetic storms during 15 May 2005 (SSC:

Toward a synthesis of equatorial spread F onset and suppression during geomagnetic storms

[1] We present initial steps toward unifying our understanding of storm time equatorial spread F (ESF) by searching for the common elements in past case studies and statistical occurrence patterns.

Response of the equatorial ionosphere at dusk to penetration electric fields during intense magnetic storms

[1] We investigate the response of the equatorial ionosphere at dusk to the intense magnetic storms of 30 October 2003 and 20 November 2003, different aspects of which have been widely studied by the

Long term studies of equatorial spread F using the JULIA radar at Jicamarca

A diagnostic model for equatorial spread F 2. The effect of magnetic activity

By using a numerical model we have studied electric field effects on the generation of equatorial spread F (ESF) in the postmidnight hours. Equatorial electric fields are zonally westward during late

Storm time dependence of equatorial disturbance dynamo zonal electric fields

We use Jicamarca radar observations of F region vertical plasma drifts and auroral electrojet indices during 1968-1988 to study the characteristics and temporal evolution of equatorial disturbance

Penetration of auroral electric fields to the equator during a substorm

We have studied the negative magnetic bay associated with the substorm that occurred on April 20, 1993, and have found that it is markedly enhanced at the daytime dip equator, coherent with that at

Effect of geomagnetic disturbances on the VHF nighttime scintillation activity at equatorial and low latitudes

VHF nighttime scintillation observations from a chain of stations extending from the equator to 21°N magnetic latitude along 84°E longitude in the Indian zone and at Lunping (23.0°N; 122°E; magnetic

The role of the ring current in the generation or inhibition of equatorial F layer irregularities during magnetic storms

For the equatorial ionosphere in years of high solar flux the F layer parameters are such that irregularities are produced almost every night in specific months. The question that has emerged is why
