Modeling subsolar thermospheric waves during a solar flare and penetration electric fields

Abstract

Abstract Thermospheric waves occurring around the time of the 14 July 2000 solar flare were investigated using the Global Ionosphere and Thermosphere Model. The simulation results showed that extensive acoustic and gravity waves were excited by the solar flare in the subsolar region. The subsolar buoyancy period at 400 km altitude was approximately 16 min… (More)
