Global Longitudinal Dependence Observation of the Neutral Wind and Ionospheric Density Distribution

Figure 4

Plot of the statistical 2D (local-time/longitude) ionospheric in situ density observed during quiet days ( ) by PLP instrument onboard C/NOFS during August–October 2008. The top panel shows the in situ density average when the satellite was below 470 km altitude for the whole latitudes (±13°N geographic latitude), and for only ±8° magnetic latitudes coverage (second from top panel). The bottom two panels show the zonal and meridional wind components observed by TIDI instrument onboard TIMED satellite.
