Horizontal and vertical ion drift data from the DE 2 spacecraft have been used to determine average zonal and vertical plasma flow (electric field) characteristics in the /plus minus/26/degree/ dip latitude region during a time of high solar activity. The data base consists of over 800 equatorial passes. Horizontal ion drift data were projected along magnetic field lines to the magnetic equator,using a dipole model to yield their apex height dependence. The 'average data' local time profile for… CONTINUE READING
