Ionospheric Physics



Modelling the Ionosphere

A computer model of the equatorial ionosphere is being developed to simulate the effects of winds and electric fields on ionisation profiles. This may later be integrated with another model of electric currents and fields.

The Lunar Tide

Another investigation looks at the lunar tide in the atmosphere, both from an observational and theoretical point of view. This work follows on to examine lunar tidal effects on ionisation densities and electric currents.
