  • An Auroral Boundary-Oriented Model of Subauroral Polarization Streams (SAPS) 

    Landry, Russell G.; Anderson, Phillip C.
    An empirical model of subauroral polarization stream (SAPS) electric fields has been developed using measurements of ion drifts and particle precipitation made by the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program from 1987 to ...
  • Topside Ionospheric Response to Solar EUV Variability 

    Anderson, Phillip C.; Hawkins, Jessica M. (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2016-02-05)
    We present an analysis of 23 years of thermal plasma measurements in the topside ionosphere from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) spacecraft. The H⁺/O⁺ ratio and density vary dramatically with the solar ...
