About The Product

Published by means of the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.

The auroral region is a quarter within which complicated plasma dynamics ensue. This area has been studied in nice aspect via sounding rocket and satellite tv for pc experiments, in addition to via ground-based observations. the first concentration of this quantity is advances made in auroral examine within the final 10 years. major parts of outrage are the worldwide morphology of the auroral area, auroral acceleration methods, parallel electrical fields, magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling and waves and turbulence within the auroral quarter, in addition to the position performed via energetic auroral experiments. the hot effects from the Viking and Akebono satellites are thought of, and the present kingdom of the sector is classed in education for brand spanking new missions resembling quick, Freja, and the ISTP software. This quantity will serve to disseminate those effects to the broader area physics group.

Svalbard/Ny Alesund) which are at high enough latitude to observe the noon sector auroral zone under quiet conditions. Nevertheless over the years general statistical patterns of dayside auroral precipitation have been inferred (Shepherd, 1979) and terminologies such as cleft and cusp developed (Heikkila and Winningham, 1971; Heiklcila, 1985).

HEARN, J. S. MURPHREE, L. L. COGGER M. L. JOHNSON AND H. B. VO Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Garlock A variety of dayside auroral morphologies as recorded by the Viking ultraviolet imager are described. Each of these basic auroral morphologies may be linked to distinctive processes in the magnetosphere.

As noted by Elphinstone et al. (1991a) this enhancement of dayside auroral luminosity and equatorward motion was followed by enhancements at later local times and substorm onset at 1828 UT. One striking aspect of this event is that the main auroral brightening and the subsequent transient occur a few minutes ELPHINSTONE ET AL. 5 Fig. 3.
