    • Changes in Thermospheric Temperature Induced by High-Speed Solar Wind Streams 

      Gardner, Larry; Sojka, Jan J.; Schunk, Robert W.; Heelis, Roderick A. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-12-08)
      During high-speed stream (HSS) events the solar wind speed increases, and the cross polar cap potential increases, leading to increased Joule heating at high latitudes. The heat input at high latitudes heats the polar ...
