• The Cusp as a VLF Saucer Source: First Rocket Observations of Long‐Duration VLF Saucers on the Dayside 

      Moser, Chrystal; LaBelle, James William; Hatch, Spencer Mark; Moen, Jøran Idar; Spicher, Andres; Takahashi, Toru; Kletzing, Craig A.; Bounds, Scott Randolph; Oksavik, Kjellmar; Sigernes, Fred; Yeoman, Timothy K. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Auroral whistler‐mode radio emissions called saucers are of fundamental interest because they require an unusually stationary emission process in the dynamic auroral environment, and it is a mystery how that can happen in ...
    • 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, ...
    • GPS scintillations associated with cusp dynamics and polar cap patches 

      Jin, Yaqi; Moen, Jøran Idar; Oksavik, Kjellmar; Spicher, Andres; Clausen, Lasse Boy Novock; Miloch, Wojciech Jacek (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
      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 

      Spicher, Andres; Deshpande, Kshitija; Jin, Yaqi; Oksavik, Kjellmar; Zettergren, Matthew D.; Clausen, Lasse Boy Novock; Moen, Jøran Idar; Hairston, Marc R.; Baddeley, Lisa (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      We present a multi‐instrument multiscale study of a channel of enhanced, inhomogeneous flow in the cusp ionosphere occurring on November 30, 2014. We provide evidence that strong Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) ...
    • Simultaneous rocket and scintillation observations of plasma irregularities associated with a reversed flow event in the cusp ionosphere 

      Jin, Yaqi; Moen, Jøran Idar; Spicher, Andres; Oksavik, Kjellmar; Miloch, Wojciech Jacek; Clausen, Lasse Boy Novock; Pożoga, Mariusz; Saito, Yoshifumi (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-08-02)
      We present an overview of the ionospheric conditions during the launch of the Investigation of Cusp Irregularities 3 (ICI‐3) sounding rocket. ICI‐3 was launched from Ny‐Ålesund, Svalbard, at 7:21.31 UT on 3 December 2011. ...
