      This paper investigates the relative scintillation level associated with cusp dynamics (including precipitation, flow shears, etc.) with and without the formation of polar cap patches around the cusp inflow region by the ...
    • On the Production of Ionospheric Irregularities Via Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability Associated with Cusp Flow Channels

      Lessard, Marc R.; Fritz, Bruce; Sadler, Brent; Cohen, Ian J.; Kenward, David; Godbole, Niharika; Clemmons, James H.; Hecht, James H.; Lynch, Kristina A.; Harrington, Meghan; Roberts, Thomas M.; Hysell, David; Crowley, Geoff; Sigernes, Fred; Syrjäsuo, Mikko; Ellingsen, Pål Gunnar; Partamies, Noora; Moen, Jøran Idar; Clausen, Lasse Boy Novock; Oksavik, Kjellmar; Yeoman, Timothy (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The Rocket Experiment for Neutral Upwelling 2 (RENU2) rocket was launched on 13 December 2015 at 07:34 UT. The payload transited the cusp region during a neutral upwelling event, supported by a comprehensive set of onboard ...
    • Scintillation and irregularities from the nightside part of a Sun-aligned polar cap arc 

      van der Meeren, Christer; Oksavik, Kjellmar; Lorentzen, Dag Arne; Paxton, Larry J.; Clausen, Lasse Boy Novock (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-06-18)
      In this paper we study the presence of irregularities and scintillation in relation to the nightside part of a long-lived, Sun-aligned transpolar arc on 15 January 2015. The arc was observed in DMSP UV and particle data ...
    • Severe and localized GNSS scintillation at the poleward edge of the nightside auroral oval during intense substorm aurora 

      van der Meeren, Christer; Oksavik, Kjellmar; Lorentzen, Dag Arne; Rietveld, Michael T.; Clausen, Lasse Boy Novock (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-12)
      In this paper we study how GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo navigation signals are compromised by strong irregularities causing severe phase scintillation (σϕ>1) in the nightside high-latitude ionosphere during a substorm on 3 ...
    • Simultaneous rocket and scintillation observations of plasma irregularities associated with a reversed flow event in the cusp ionosphere
