• Characterising Mesoscale Fast Flow Channels in the Polar Cap Ionosphere 

      Herlingshaw, Katie (Doctoral thesis, 2021-01-22)
      The large-scale ionospheric convection that circulates in the high-latitude polar caps was initially assumed to be a smooth, laminar flow. However, it has now come to light that this is an oversimplified understanding of ...
    • Dayside Field-Aligned Current Impacts on Ionospheric Irregularities 

      Follestad, Anna Kristine Fæhn; Herlingshaw, Katie; Ghadjari, Hossein; Knudsen, David J.; McWilliams, Kathryn A.; Moen, Jøran Idar; Spicher, Andres; Wu, Jingjing; Oksavik, Kjellmar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are subject to disturbances caused by plasma irregularities in the ionosphere. Studies have suggested that in addition to the gradient drift and Kelvin‐Helmholtz instabilities, ...
    • Observational evidence for throat aurora being associated with magnetopause reconnection 

      Han, De-Sheng; Xu, Tong; Jin, Yaqi; Oksavik, Kjellmar; Chen, Xiangcai; Liu, Jian-Jun; Zhang, Qinghe; Baddeley, Lisa; Herlingshaw, Katie (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Throat auroras have been suggested to be related to indentations on the subsolar magnetopause. However, the indentation generation process and the resulting ionospheric responses have remained unknown. An EISCAT Svalbard ...
    • A statistical study of polar cap flow channels and their IMF by dependence 

      Herlingshaw, Katie; Baddeley, Lisa; Oksavik, Kjellmar; Lorentzen, Dag Arne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      An algorithm to detect high-speed ionospheric flow channels (FCs) in the polar cap was applied to data from the Longyearbyen radar of the Super Dual Auroral Radar Network. The Longyearbyen radar is at high latitude (78.2°N, ...
    • A Study of Automatically Detected Flow Channels in the Polar Cap Ionosphere 

      Herlingshaw, Katie; Baddeley, Lisa; Oksavik, Kjellmar; Lorentzen, Dag Arne; Bland, Emma (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-11-13)
      This paper presents a new algorithm for detecting high‐speed flow channels in the polar cap. The algorithm was applied to Super Dual Auroral Radar Network data, specifically to data from the new Longyearbyen radar. This ...
