Numerical Simulation of the Time Evolution of Small-Scale Irregularities in the F-Layer Ionospheric Plasma

Figure 2

The time variation of the normalized potential energy of the plasma filling up all simulation region, π‘Š p o t ( 𝑑 ) / π‘Š 0 k i n . The results were obtained for the first situation with the start from the completely electrically neutral state. The values are given in units of 10βˆ’11. The normalized time, 𝑑 / 𝑇 𝑝 𝑒 , that is, the time in units of the equilibrium period of Langmuir oscillations of electrons, 𝑇 𝑝 𝑒 , is shown on the abscissa.
