    P. Sibanda and L. A. McKinnell: Topside ionospheric vertical electron density profile reconstruction the section that follows resulting in a profile that is unique to a specific set of geophysical conditions. Therefore, the focus of the present study is on the ability to construct the shape of the electron density in the vertical.   As mentioned before, an increase in the ionospheric electron density or in the VTEC can be also provoked by storm-time-enhanced neutral winds and the consequent ionospheric uplift, by downwelling of the gas due to storm-time-induced thermospheric circulation (i.e., increase in the O/N2 ratio), as well as by plasma fluxes from plasmasphere (e.g Cited by: Therefore, after the bottomside electron density profile of ionosphere has been precisely measured by an ionosonde, the corresponding PolSAR TEC can be used to calculate the TEC Top for the ionosonde. Resorting to Equation (9), we can derive the parameter H T. Then, the topside profile could be easily calculated from Equation (3).Cited by: 2. A model is presented for the thickness of the electron density profile in the region above the F layer maximum. The model varies with time and solar conditions; it is specified by observations or predictions of the height of the F layer maximum; and it is independent of latitude.

    Space weather deposits energy into the high polar latitudes, primarily via Joule heating that is associated with the Poynting flux electromagnetic energy flow between the magnetosphere and ionosphere. One way to observe this energy flow is to look at the ionospheric electron density profile (EDP), especially that of the topside. The altitude location of the ionospheric peak Author: Jan J.

Background Significance of topside ionospheric electron-density profile. Technology has advanced to the state that uncertainties in ionospheric models and the effects of ionospheric irregularities and disturbances are often the limiting factors in the overall performance of communication, navigation and surveillance systems since they rely on Cited by: 9.

The ionosphere (/ aɪ ˈ ɒ n ə ˌ s f ɪər /) is the ionized part of Earth's upper atmosphere, from about 60 km (37 mi) to 1, km ( mi) altitude, a region that includes the thermosphere and parts of the mesosphere and ionosphere is ionized by solar radiation. It plays an important role in atmospheric electricity and forms the inner edge of the magnetosphere.

Note that in this work, we used data from DEMETER at almost a fixed orbit height of ~ km. Thus, the satellite sampled the topside ionosphere where electron density decreases with plasma scale height and electron temperature increases.

The spatial distribution of electron number densities in the ionosphere, especially the height profile Ne(h),is essential for ionospheric related studies and practical applications.

As a measure of the shape of the electron density profile, the scale height is one of the important ionospheric characteristics. However, the knowledge of the spatial behavior of ionospheric scale heights.
