Estimation of electron density in the nighttime ionosphere based on remote sensing of the 135.6 nm far ultraviolet emission (2016-07-19)This thesis develops a method to accurately estimate the electron density altitude profiles of the nighttime ionosphere, as well as important parameters such as the peak height and density, using nighttime far ultraviolet ...
(2014-01-16)This thesis describes a project on the modeling of spectral characteristics of electron density irregularities of the topside equatorial ionosphere probed by the Jicamarca Incoherent Scatter Radar (ISR) located near Lima, ...
(2013-05-24)A large database of images of the night sky above Hawaii and Chile is being collected in order to study ionospheric structures. The images of interest are those that contain equatorial plasma bubbles (EPB) or medium-scale ...
(2017-04-18)Tsunamis generate internal gravity waves (IGWs) that propagate vertically into the atmosphere and can create detectable signatures in the ionosphere. These signatures have consistently been observed in the presence of a ...
