In this study, velocities of E-region HF echoes observed by the Stokkseyri HF radar are compared with E×B plasma drifts in the F-region measured by the DMSP satellites. Events were selected for which the DMSP track projected to the height of 110 km was almost perpendicular to the central beams of the radar, resulting in a direct comparison of the cross-track component of the E×B drift and the line-of-sight HF velocity. We found that the typical ratio of HF velocity to the DMSP drift is∼0.35 in… CONTINUE READING
