The polar cap absorption effect

  title={The polar cap absorption effect},
  author={D. C. Rose and S. Ziauddin},
  journal={Space Science Reviews},
Techniques for observing polar-cap absorption (PCA) events are outiined. The characteristics, time sequences, associated solar-terrestial phenomena, and effects of geomagnetic storms on PCA events are reviewed. The height of the absorbing region during the PCA event is considered. Solar radio emission during a Type-IV radio outburst is investigated, and the natures and spectra of solar particles that may be associated with PCA events are examined. The emission and interplanetary storage of… Expand
The streaming of solar flare particles and plasma in interplanetary space
A review is given of the features of solar particle emissions which cause various terrestrial disturbances. Three types of corpuscular emissions, namely, solar cosmic rays, energetic storm protonsExpand
Streaming of solar particles between Sun and Earth
It has long been known that the physical state of the Earth’s upper atmosphere is closely related to solar activity-the growth and decay of sunspots, the corona, uprushing prominences and brightExpand
Quiet time observations of the open‐closed boundary prior to the CIR‐induced storm of 9 August 2008
[1] The open-closed magnetic field line boundary (OCB) is an important indicator of magnetospheric dynamics and can be used to identify locations of particle precipitation at the edge of theExpand
Atmospheric drag effects on modelled low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites during the July 2000 Bastille Day event in contrast to an interval of geomagnetically quiet conditions
Abstract. In this work, we simulated the atmospheric drag effect on two model SmallSats (small satellites) in low Earth orbit (LEO) with different ballistic coefficients during 1-month intervals ofExpand
Attenuation of decameter wavelength sky noise during x-ray solar flares in 2013-2017 based on the observations of midlatitude HF radars
Abstract Based on a joint analysis of data from 10 midlatitude decameter wavelength radars effects are investigated during 80 x-ray flares that occurred in the period 2013–2017. For the investigationExpand

The polar cap as a distinct geophysical entity
Abstract If you wish to know what men seek in this land, or why man journey thither in so great danger of their lives, then it is the threefold nature of man which draws him thither. One part of himExpand


Enhancement of Night-Sky Molecular Nitrogen Emission in Polar Cap Absorption Events
IT has long been accepted that auroral activity is associated, with magnetic disturbances. Observations inside the auroral zone show the relationship to be rather complex ; bright auroral displaysExpand
On the Interpretation of Ionization in the Lower Ionosphere Occurring on Both Day and Night Side of the Earth within a Few Hours after some Solar Flares
Some strong solar flares cause very strong absorption in high geomagnetic latitudes on both day and night sides of the earth. The absorption effect is measurable a few hours after the solar flareExpand
A Relation Between Solar Radio Emission and Polar Cap Absorption of Cosmic Noise
Results are reported from a statistical study of the nature of centimeter-wave as well as meter-wave radio outbursts associated with polar cap absorption events. General conclusions are drawnExpand
Effects of the solar flares of 7 July 1958
The very strong effects in the auroral zone of the solar flares of 7 July 1958 as observed at Kiruna Geophysical Observatory by means of magnetometers, an ionospheric sounder, a cosmic noiseExpand
Ionospheric Disturbance at the Time of Cosmic Ray Increases
IN a recent communication Legrand and Helary1 have reported the occurrence of an anomalous increase in the intensity of the total cosmic ray component at the Paris Cosmic Ray Survey Station onExpand
The cosmic ray flare effect
One of the diffcoulties encountered in trying to explain the sadden increase of cosmic rays observed on the earth foliowing somae solar flares is that magnetic fields in the vicinity of the flare inExpand
