Study of the Modification of the High-Latitude Ionosphere by the Ground-Based Ionospheric Heater at the Nighttime: A Simulation Approach

The goal of this study is to see how high-power, high-frequency radio waves pushed into the ionosphere at high latitudes affect ionospheric plasma characteristics. The ground-based ionospheric heater at Tromso, Scandinavia, is used to calculate three-dimensional distributions of ionospheric parameters using a mathematical model of the high-latitude ionosphere developed earlier at the Polar Geophysical Institute.…

Study of the Large-scale Modification of the Ionosphere Induced by High Frequency Radio Waves with Different Powers: A Simulation Approach

The goal of this study is to see if intense high-frequency radio waves, used for artificial heating experiments and pushed into the ionosphere by ground-based ionospheric heaters, may cause large-scale ionosphere change. The mathematical modelling method is used in this inquiry. The Polar Geophysical Institute produced a mathematical model of the ionospheric E and F…
