The effect of background conditions on the ionospheric response to solar flares

Abstract

The ionospheric response to two X5 solar flares that occurred in different seasons was investigated using the global ionosphere-thermosphere model. Two questions were investigated: (a) how do different solar flares with similar X-ray peak intensities disturb the ionosphere during the same background and driving conditions? and (b) how do the geomagnetic… (More)
