Model for artificial ionospheric duct formation due to HF heating

Abstract

[1] Strong electron heating by the injection of highly powerfu l HF waves can lead to the format ion of ionospheric plasma density perturbations that stretch along the magnetic field lines. Those density perturbations can serve as ducts for guiding natural and artificial ELF/VLF waves. This paper presents a theoretical model of duct formation due to HF… (More)
