    Relationship between the locations of the midlatitude trough minimum in the ionosphere and plasmapause in the inner magnetosphere has been statistically investigated using global navigation satellite system (GNSS)-total electron content (TEC) and electron density data obtained from the Arase satellite from March 23, 2017 to May 31, 2020. In this analysis, we identify the midlatitude trough minimum as a minimum value of GNSS-TEC at subauroral and midlatitude regions, and determine the plasmapause as an electron density decrease by a factor of 5 or more within ΔL < 0.5 in the inner magnetosphere. As a result, the plasmapause does not always coincide with the midlatitude trough minimum in all magnetic local time (MLT) sectors under all geomagnetic conditions. During the geomagnetically quiet periods, the midlatitude trough minimum is located at higher and lower geomagnetic latitudes (GMLATs) of the plasmapause in the MLT ranges of 5–21 and 21–5 h, respectively. This implies that both the features could not be on the same magnetic field line. On the other hand, during the storm main phase, the midlatitude trough minimum and plasmapause move toward a low-latitude region with day-night and dawn-dusk asymmetries and the correlation becomes highest, compared with that under other geomagnetic conditions. Especially, both the features mapped on the ionosphere at a height of 300 km exist near GMLAT in the afternoon-midnight sectors. This suggests that the midlatitude trough and plasmapause are formed at almost the same location due to an enhanced subauroral polarization stream during the storm main phase.

    We performed a superposed epoch analysis of solar wind, interplanetary magnetic field, geomagnetic index, and the rate of total electron content (TEC) index (ROTI) derived from global navigation satellite system-TEC data during 652 geomagnetic storm events (minimum SYM-H < −40 nT), to clarify the occurrence features and causes of storm-time plasma bubbles in the equatorial to mid-latitude ionosphere. In this analysis, we defined the time of the SYM-H minimum as the zero epoch. As a result, the ROTI enhancement started at the duskside magnetic equator and expanded to higher latitudes during the main phase. Approximately 1 h after the onset of the recovery phase, the ROTI values at the magnetic equator in the dusk-to-midnight sectors decreased while those in the dawn sector increased. This situation persisted for at least 12 h. The ratio of the ROTI during the main phase to that during the quiet period in the dusk sector is the largest in May–July. The ratio of the ROTI during the recovery phase decreased during dusk with increasing solar activity. Considering the requirement of the Rayleigh-Taylor instability, the difference in the magnetic local time of the ROTI signature, between the main and recovery phases, can be explained by a local time distribution of storm-time electric fields associated with a prompt penetration electric field and disturbance dynamo. This implies that the occurrence feature of the plasma bubble is different from that during quiet times when the input of solar wind energy to the magnetosphere and ionosphere increases significantly.

    Isolated proton auroras (IPAs) appearing at subauroral latitudes are generated by energetic protons precipitating from the magnetosphere through interaction with electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves. An IPA thus indicates the spatial scale and temporal variation of wave-particle interactions in the magnetosphere. In this study, a unique event of simultaneous ground and magnetospheric satellite observations of two IPAs were conducted on March 16, 2015, using an all-sky imager at Athabasca, Canada and Van Allen Probes. The Van Allen Probes observed two isolated EMIC waves with frequencies of ∼1 and 0.4 Hz at L ≈ 5.0 when the satellite footprint crossed over the two IPAs. This suggests that the IPAs were caused by localized EMIC waves. Proton flux at 5–20 keV increased locally when the EMIC waves appeared. Electron flux at energies below ∼500 eV also increased. Temperature anisotropy of the energetic protons was estimated at 1.5–2.5 over a wide L-value range of 3.0–5.2. Electron density gradually decreased from L = 3.5 to 5.4, suggesting that the EMIC wave at L ≈ 5.0 was located in the gradual plasmapause. From these observations, we conclude that the localized IPAs and associated EMIC waves took place because of localized enhancement of energetic proton flux and plasma density structure near the plasmapause. The magnetic field observed by the satellite showed small variation during the wave observation, indicating that the IPAs were accompanied by the weak field-aligned current.

    We attempted to reproduce the total electron content (TEC) variation in the Earth's atmosphere from the temporal variation of the solar flare spectrum of the X9.3 flare on September 6, 2017. The flare spectrum from the Flare Irradiance Spectral Model (FISM), and the flare spectrum from the 1D hydrodynamic model, which considers the physics of plasma in the flare loop, are used in the GAIA model, which is a simulation model of the Earth's whole atmosphere and ionosphere, to calculate the TEC difference. We then compared these results with the observed TEC. When we used the FISM flare spectrum, the difference in TEC from the background was in a good agreement with the observation. However, when the flare spectrum of the 1D-hydrodynamic model was used, the result varied depending on the presence or absence of the background. This difference depending on the models is considered to represent which extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation is primarily responsible for increasing TEC. From the flare spectrum obtained from these models and the calculation result of TEC fluctuation using GAIA, it is considered that the enhancement in EUV emission by approximately 15–35 nm mainly contributes in increasing TEC rather than that of X-ray emission, which is thought to be mainly responsible for sudden ionospheric disturbance. In addition, from the altitude/wavelength distribution of the ionization rate of Earth's atmosphere by GAIA (Ground-to-topside Atmosphere and Ionosphere model for Aeronomy), it was found that EUV radiation of approximately 15–35 nm affects a wide altitude range of 120–300 km, and TEC enhancement is mainly caused by the ionization of nitrogen molecules.[Figure not available: see fulltext.]

    Stable auroral red (SAR) arcs are optical events with dominant 630.0-nm emission caused by low-energy electron heat flux into the topside ionosphere from the inner magnetosphere. SAR arcs are observed at subauroral latitudes and often occur during the recovery phase of magnetic storms and substorms. Past studies concluded that these low-energy electrons were generated in the spatial overlap region between the outer plasmasphere and ring-current ions and suggested that Coulomb collisions between plasmaspheric electrons and ring-current ions are more feasible for the SAR-arc generation mechanism rather than Landau damping by electromagnetic ion cyclotron waves or kinetic Alfvén waves. This work studies three separate SAR-arc events with conjunctions, using all-sky imagers and inner magnetospheric satellites (Arase and Radiation Belt Storm Probes [RBSP]) during non-storm-time substorms on December 19, 2012 (event 1), January 17, 2015 (event 2), and November 4, 2019 (event 3). We evaluated for the first time the heat flux via Coulomb collision using full-energy-range ion data obtained by the satellites. The electron heat fluxes due to Coulomb collisions reached ∼109 eV/cm2/s for events 1 and 2, indicating that Coulomb collisions could have caused the SAR arcs. RBSP-A also observed local enhancements of 7–20-mHz electromagnetic wave power above the SAR arc in event 2. The heat flux for the freshly detached SAR arc in event 3 reached ∼108 eV/cm2/s, which is insufficient to have caused the SAR arc. In event 3, local flux enhancement of electrons (<200 eV) and various electromagnetic waves were observed, these are likely to have caused the freshly detached SAR arc.

    The total electron content (TEC) data derived from the GAIA (Ground-to-topside model of Atmosphere Ionosphere for Aeronomy) is used to study the seasonal and longitudinal variation of occurrence of medium-scale traveling ionospheric disturbances (MSTIDs) during daytime (09:00–15:00 LT) for the year 2011 at eight locations in northern and southern hemispheres, and the results are compared with ground-based Global Positioning System (GPS)-TEC. To derive TEC variations caused by MSTIDs from the GAIA (GPS) data, we obtained detrended TEC by subtracting 2-h (1-h) running average from the TEC, and calculated standard deviation of the detrended TEC in 2 h (1 h). MSTID activity was defined as a ratio of the standard deviation to the averaged TEC. Both GAIA simulation and GPS observations data show that daytime MSTID activities in the northern and southern hemisphere (NH and SH) are higher in winter than in other seasons. From the GAIA simulation, the amplitude of the meridional wind variations, which could be representative of gravity waves (GWs), shows two peaks in winter and summer. The winter peak in the amplitude of the meridional wind variations coincides with the winter peak of the daytime MSTIDs, indicating that the high GW activity is responsible for the high MSTID activity. On the other hand, the MSTID activity does not increase in summer. This is because the GWs in the thermosphere propagate poleward in summer, and equatorward in winter, and the equatorward-propagating GWs cause large plasma density perturbations compared to the poleward-propagating GWs. Longitudinal variation of daytime MSTID activity in winter is seen in both hemispheres. The MSTID activity during winter in the NH is higher over Japan than USA, and the MSTID activity during winter in the SH is the highest in South America. In a nutshell, GAIA can successfully reproduce the seasonal and longitudinal variation of the daytime MSTIDs. This study confirms that GWs cause the daytime MSTIDs in GAIA and amplitude and propagation direction of the GWs control the noted seasonal variation. GW activities in the middle and lower atmosphere cause the longitudinal variation. [Figure not available: see fulltext.].

    In order to reveal solar activity dependence of the medium-scale traveling ionospheric disturbances (MSTIDs) at midlatitudes, total electron content (TEC) data obtained from a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver network in Japan during 22 years from 1998 to 2019 were analyzed. We have calculated the detrended TEC by subtracting the 1-h running average from the original TEC data for each satellite and receiver pair, and made two-dimensional TEC maps of the detrended TEC with a spatial resolution of 0.15° × 0.15° in longitude and latitude. We have investigated MSTID activity, defined as δI/ I¯ , where δI and I¯ are standard deviation of the detrended TEC and the average vertical TEC within the area of 133.0°–137.0° E and 33.0°–37.0° N for 1 h, respectively. From each 2-h time series of the detrended TEC data within the same area as the MSTID activity, auto-correlation functions (ACFs) of the detrended TEC were calculated to estimate the horizontal propagation velocity and direction of the MSTIDs. Statistical results of the MSTID activity and propagation direction of MSTIDs were consistent with previous studies and support the idea that daytime MSTIDs could be caused by atmospheric gravity waves, and that nighttime MSTIDs were caused by electro-dynamical forces, such as the Perkins instability. From the current long-term observations, we have found that the nighttime MSTID activity and occurrence rate increased with decreasing solar activity. For the daytime MSTID, the occurrence rate increased with decreasing solar activity, whereas the MSTID activity did not show distinct solar activity dependence. These results suggest that the secondary gravity waves generated by dissipation of the primary gravity waves propagating from below increase under low solar activity conditions. The mean horizontal phase velocity of the MSTIDs during nighttime did not show a distinct solar activity dependence, whereas that during daytime showed an anticorrelation with solar activity. The horizontal phase velocity of the daytime MSTIDs was widely distributed from 40 to 180 m/s under high solar activity conditions, whereas it ranged between 80 and 200 m/s, with a maximum occurrence at 130 m/s under low solar activity conditions, suggesting that gravity waves with low phase velocity could be dissipated by high viscosity in the thermosphere under low solar activity conditions.

    Various subauroral optical features have been studied by analyzing data collected during periods of geomagnetic disturbances. Most events have been typically found at geomagnetic latitudes of 45–60°. In this study, however, we present a red arc event found at geomagnetic 68° north (L ≈ 7.1) in the Scandinavian sector during a period of geomagnetically quiet conditions within a short intermission between two high-speed solar wind events. The red arc appeared to coincide with a pseudo breakup at geomagnetic 71–72°N and a rapid equatorward expansion of the polar cap. However, the red arc disappeared in approximately 7 min. Simultaneous measurements with the Swarm A/C satellites indicated the appearance of the red arc at the ionospheric trough minimum and a conspicuous enhancement of the electron temperature, suggesting the generation of the arc by heat flux. Since there are meaningful differences in the red arc features from already-known subauroral optical features such as the stable auroral red (SAR) arc, we considered that the red arc is a new phenomenon. We suggest that the ephemeral red arc may represent the moment of SAR arc birth associated with substorm particle injection, which is generally masked by bright dynamic aurorae.

    A stable auroral red (SAR) arc is an aurora with a dominant 630 nm emission at subauroral latitudes. SAR arcs have been considered to occur due to the spatial overlap between the plasmasphere and the ring-current ions. In the overlap region, plasmaspheric electrons are heated by ring-current ions or plasma waves, and their energy is then transferred down to the ionosphere where it causes oxygen red emission. However, there have been no study conducted so far that quantitatively examined plasma and electromagnetic fields in the magnetosphere associated with SAR arc. In this paper, we report the first quantitative evaluation of conjugate measurements of a SAR arc observed at 2204 UT on 28 March 2017 and investigate its source region using an all-sky imager at Nyrölä (magnetic latitude: 59.4°N), Finland, and the Arase satellite. The Arase observation shows that the SAR arc appeared in the overlap region between a plasmaspheric plume and the ring-current ions and that electromagnetic ion cyclotron waves and kinetic Alfven waves were not observed above the SAR arc. The SAR arc was located at the ionospheric trough minimum identified from a total electron content map obtained by the GNSS receiver network. The Swarm satellite flying in the ionosphere also passed the SAR arc at ~2320 UT and observed a decrease in electron density and an increase in electron temperature during the SAR-arc crossing. These observations suggest that the heating of plasmaspheric electrons via Coulomb collision with ring-current ions is the most plausible mechanism for the SAR-arc generation.

    Temporal and spatial evolutions of total electron content (TEC) and electron density in the ionosphere during a geomagnetic storm that occurred on 27 and 28 September 2017 have been investigated using global TEC data obtained from many Global Navigation Satellite System stations together with the ionosonde, geomagnetic field, Jicamarca incoherent scatter and Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) radar data. Our analysis results show that a clear enhancement of the ratio of the TEC difference (rTEC) first occurs from noon to afternoon at high latitudes within 1 hr after a sudden increase and expansion of the high-latitude convection and prompt penetration of the electric field to the equator associated with the southward excursion of the interplanetary magnetic field. Approximately 1–2 hr after the onset of the hmF2 increase in the midlatitude and low-latitude regions associated with the high-latitude convection enhancement, the rTEC and foF2 values begin to increase and the enhanced rTEC region expands to low latitudes within 1–2 hr. This signature suggests that the ionospheric plasmas in the F2 region move at a higher altitude due to local electric field drift, where the recombination rate is smaller, and that the electron density increases due to additional production at the lower altitude in the sunlit region. Later, another rTEC enhancement related to the equatorial ionization anomaly appears in the equatorial region approximately 1 hr after the prompt penetration of the electric field to the equator and expands to higher latitudes within 3–4 hr.

    The Earth's plasmasphere is the vast 'doughnut' shaped dense plasma region of the magnetosphere that is filled with cold ions and electrons of ionospheric origin. The plasmaspheric plasma density shows an abrupt drop by a factor of 5 or more around 4-6 Re (Re: Earth's radius). The boundary has been called 'plasmapause'. Since the plasmaspheric cold plasma controls generation of plasma waves, their propagation features, and particle acceleration via wave-particle interaction, detailed investigation of the temporal and spatial variations of the plasmasphere and plasmapause location during a geomagnetic storm is important for understanding a change in plasma wave environments in the inner magnetosphere. Recent studies showed a good correlation between the mid-latitude ionospheric trough and the plasmapause for both geomagnetically quiet and disturbed conditions [1]. However, they did not reach the detailed investigation of the characteristics of spatial variation of the mid-latitude ionospheric trough and its temporal variation with high resolution due to limitation of a usage of global GIM of TEC. In this study, we investigate characteristics of temporal and spatial variations of the mid-latitude ionospheric trough during a geomagnetic storm which occurred on April 4, 2017 using the 5-min average Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Total Electron Content (TEC) data together with solar wind, interplanetary magnetic field, geomagnetic field, and Arase High Frequency Analyzer (HFA) (subcomponent of Plasma Wave Experiment (PWE)) observation data. As a result, the location of the mid-latitude ionospheric trough moves equatorward from 60 to 48 degrees within 4 hours after the onset of the storm main phase. The movement speed increases from 1.3 to 3.5 degrees of geomagnetic latitude per hour after the onset of storm-time substorm. The increasing speed means an abrupt shrink of the plasmasphere due to a sudden enhancement of convection electric field in the inner magnetosphere associated with the substorm onset. The location of the mid-latitude ionospheric trough identified from the minimum value of the GNSS-TEC data from the auroral to mid-latitude regions is almost in good agreement with that of an abrupt drop of electron density derived from the upper limit frequency of the upper hybrid resonance (UHR) waves detected by the HFA instrument onboard the Arase satellite. In this case, the electron density profile along the Arase orbit shows an irregular variation of the electron density near the plasmapause. During the main phase of the geomagnetic storm, the geomagnetic longitude distribution of the mid-latitude trough location shows a wavy structure with its scale of 1000-2500 km. The shape of the wavy structure varies with time during the storm main phase. This phenomenon has not yet been reported before due to the limitation of ground dense GNSS receiver networks. After the start of the recovery phase of the geomagnetic storm, the mid-latitude ionospheric trough quickly moves poleward from 48 to 60 degrees in geomagnetic latitude within 4 hours in a geomagnetic longitude range of 310-360 degrees in geomagnetic longitude. The average speed of the poleward movement is 2.3 degrees of geomagnetic latitude per hour.

    Temporal and spatial variations of the midlatitude ionospheric trough during a geomagnetic storm on 4 April 2017 have been investigated using Global Navigation Satellite System total electron content data together with Arase satellite observations. After the geomagnetic storm commencement, the trough minimum location moves equatorward from 60 to 48° in geomagnetic latitude within 4 hr. The trough minimum location identified from the Global Navigation Satellite System total electron content data is located near the footprint of an abrupt drop of electron density detected by the Arase High-Frequency Analyzer instrument. The longitudinal variation of the trough minimum location shows a significant variation with a scale of 1,000–2,500 km during both storm and quiet times. This phenomenon has not yet been reported by previous studies. After the onset of the storm recovery phase, the trough minimum location rapidly moves poleward back to the quiet time location within 4 hr.

    Two-dimensional ionospheric total electron content (TEC) maps have been derived from ground-based Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver networks and applied to studies of various ionospheric disturbances since the mid-1990s. For the purpose of monitoring and researching ionospheric conditions and ionospheric space weather phenomena, we have developed TEC maps of areas over Japan using the dense GNSS network, GNSS Earth Observation NETwork (GEONET), which consists of about 1300 stations and is operated by the Geospatial Information Authority of Japan (GSI). Currently, we are providing high-resolution, two-dimensional maps of absolute TEC, detrended TEC, rate of TEC change index (ROTI), and loss-of-lock on GPS signal over Japan on a real-time basis. Such high-resolution TEC maps using dense GNSS receiver networks are one of the most effective ways to observe, on a scale of several 100 km to 1000 km, ionospheric variations caused by traveling ionospheric disturbances and/or equatorial plasma bubbles, which can degrade single-frequency and differential GNSS positioning/navigation. We have collected all the available GNSS receiver data in the world to expand the TEC observation area. Currently, however, dense GNSS receiver networks are available in only limited areas, such as Japan, North America, and Europe. To expand the two-dimensional TEC observation with high resolution, we have conducted the Dense Regional and Worldwide International GNSS TEC observation (DRAWING-TEC) project, which is engaged in three activities: (1) standardizing GNSS-TEC data, (2) developing a new high-resolution TEC mapping technique, and (3) sharing the standardized TEC data or the information of GNSS receiver network. We have developed a new standardized TEC format, GNSS-TEC EXchange (GTEX), which is included in the Formatted Tables of ITU-R SG 3 Data-banks related to Recommendation ITU-R P.311. Sharing the GTEX TEC data would be easier than sharing the GPS/GNSS data among those in the international ionospheric researcher community. The DRAWING-TEC project would promote studies of medium-scale ionospheric variations and their effect on GNSS.

    The statistics of gravity wave momentum flux estimation are investigated using data from the MU radar at Shigariki, Japan (136 degrees E, 35 degrees N). The radar has been operating during campaign periods since 1986. The first part of the paper focuses on a multi-day campaign during October 13-31, 1986. The second part of the paper investigates data after 2006 when the radar was operated in a meteor scatter mode. Momentum fluxes are derived from both the turbulent scatter and the meteor scatter measurements, but the techniques are quite different. Probability Distribution Functions are formed using turbulent scatter data. These show that wave packets sometimes have momentum flux magnitudes in excess of 100 m(2) s(-2). The technique for meteor radars, introduced by Hocking (2005), has been widely adopted by the radar community in recent years. The momentum flux estimated using this technique is found to be anti-correlated with the background tidal winds. A validation investigation is carried out for periods with a high meteor echo data rate. The conclusion was that the method can be used to calculate the sign of momentum flux, but does not accurately specify the magnitude. (C) 2016 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.

    The ionospheric plasma in midlatitude moves upward/downward during the geomagnetic sudden commencement causing the HF Doppler frequency changes; SCF (+-) and (-+) on the dayside and nightside, respectively, except for the SCF (+-) in the evening as found by Kikuchi et al. (1985). Although the preliminary and main frequency deviations (PFD, MFD) of the SCF have been attributed to the dusk-to-dawn and dawn-to-dusk potential electric fields, there still remain questions if the positive PFD can be caused by the compressional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) wave and what causes the evening anomaly of the SCF. With the HF Doppler sounder, we show that the dayside ionosphere moves upward toward the Sun during the main impulse (MI) of the SC, when the compressional wave is supposed to push the ionosphere downward. The motion of the ionosphere is shown to be correlated with the equatorial electrojet, matching the potential electric field transmitted with the ionospheric currents from the polar ionosphere. We confirmed that the electric field of the compressional wave is severely suppressed by the conducting ionosphere and reproduced the SC electric fields using the global MHD simulation in which the potential solver is employed. The model calculations well reproduced the preliminary impulse and MI electric fields and their evening anomaly. It is suggested that the electric potential is transmitted from the polar ionosphere to the equator by the zeroth-order transverse magnetic (TM0) mode waves in the Earth-ionosphere waveguide. The near-instantaneous transmission of the electric potential leads to instantaneous global response of the incompressible ionosphere.

    Two nearly identical meteor radars were operated at Koto Tabang (0.20 degrees S, 100.32 degrees E), West Sumatra, and Biak (1.17 degrees S, 136.10 degrees E), West Papua, in Indonesia, separated by approximately 4000 km in longitude on the Equator. The zonal and meridional momentum flux, u'w' and v'w', where u, v, and w are the eastward, northward, and vertical wind velocity components, respectively, were estimated at 86 to 94 km altitudes using the meteor radar data by applying a method proposed by Hocking (2005). The observed u'w' at the two sites agreed reasonably well at 86, 90, and 94 km during the observation periods when the data acquisition rate was sufficiently large enough. Variations in v'w' were consistent between 86, 90, and 94 km altitudes at both sites. The climatological variation in the monthly averaged u'w' and v'w' was investigated using the long-term radar data at Koto Tabang from November 2002 to November 2013. The seasonal variations in u'w' and v'w' showed a repeatable semiannual and annual cycles, respectively. u'w' showed eastward values in February-April and July-September and v'w' was northward in June to August at 90-94 km, both of which were generally anti-phase with the mean zonal and meridional winds, having the same periodicity. Our results suggest the usefulness of the Hocking method.

    A statistical study using a large dataset of Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) observations is conducted for transient ionospheric plasma flows associated with sudden impulses (SI) recorded on ground magnetic field. The global structure of twin vortex-like ionospheric flows is found to be consistent with the twin vortices of ionospheric Hall current deduced by the past geomagnetic field observations. An interesting feature, which is focused on in this study, is that the flow structures show a dawn-dusk asymmetry depending on the combination of the polarity of SI and interplanetary magnetic field (IMF)-By. Detailed statistics of the SuperDARN observations reveal that the dawn-dusk asymmetry of flow vortices due to IMF-By appears during negative SIs, while such asymmetric characteristics are not seen during positive SIs. On the basis of the upstream observations, we suggest that this particular dawn-dusk asymmetry is caused by the interaction between the pre-existing round convection cell and a pair of the transient convection vortices associated with SIs.

    Using in situ observations from the Republic of China Satellite-1 spacecraft, we investigated the time response and local time dependence of the ionospheric electric field at mid-low latitudes associated with geomagnetic sudden commencements (SCs) that occurred from 1999 to 2004. We found that the ionospheric electric field variation associated with SCs instantaneously responds to the preliminary impulse (PI) signature on the ground regardless of spacecraft local time. Our statistical analysis also supports the global instant transmission of electric field from the polar region. In contrast, the peak time detected in the ionospheric electric field is earlier than that of the equatorial geomagnetic field (similar to 20s before in the PI phase). Based on the ground-ionosphere waveguide model, this time lag can be attributed to the latitudinal difference of ionospheric conductivity. However, the local time distribution of the initial excursion of ionospheric electric field shows that dusk-to-dawn ionospheric electric fields develop during the PI phase. Moreover, the westward electric field in the ionosphere, which produces the preliminary reverse impulse of the geomagnetic field on the dayside feature, appears at 18-22h LT where the ionospheric conductivity beyond the duskside terminator (18h LT) is lower than on the dayside. The result of a magnetohydrodynamic simulation for an ideal SC shows that the electric potential distribution is asymmetric with respect to the noon-midnight meridian. This produces the local time distribution of ionospheric electric fields similar to the observed result, which can be explained by the divergence of the Hall current under nonuniform ionospheric conductivity.

    Background: This paper presents an overview of the capacity-building activities and science-enabling services of the Inter-university Upper atmosphere Global Observation NETwork (IUGONET) project. This Japanese program, which started in 2009, is building a metadata database (MDDB) of ground-based observations and is developing an analysis software to handle the data linked to the MDDB system for use by the solar-terrestrial physics community. Because the institutional members of the IUGONET are mainly universities in Japan, we explore tools that can contribute to advanced education as well as promote research activities. Findings: In this paper, we describe the utilities of the IUGONET for education, including our capacity-building activities in developing countries. We have regularly facilitated training seminars for Japanese students on the use of our tools (IUGONET MDDB and the software), and we have held capacity-building seminars for young scientists in developing countries. In addition to the MDDB, we have prepared various 'gateway' tools for users who are unfamiliar with 'keywords' to search for data. One of these is a geographical display tool that uses Google Earth (KML file), which is included as supplemental material to this paper. The usefulness of the IUGONET has been proven over its first 5 years of operation by the increasing number of its users, which has led to the production of approximately 500 scientific papers, including 42 thesis papers. Conclusions: The IUGONET community collaborates with the Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics program, not only in its scientific activities, but also in the establishment of E-infrastructure and capacity building.

    Characteristics of long-term variation in the amplitude of solar quiet (Sq) geomagnetic field daily variation have been investigated using 1-h geomagnetic field data obtained from 69 geomagnetic observation stations within the period of 1947 to 2013. The Sq amplitude observed at these geomagnetic stations showed a clear dependence on the 10- to 12-year solar activity cycle and tended to be enhanced during each solar maximum phase. The Sq amplitude was the smallest around the minimum of solar cycle 23/24 in 2008 to 2009. The relationship between the solar F10.7 index and Sq amplitude was approximately linear but about 53% of geomagnetic stations showed a weak nonlinear relation to the solar F10.7 index. In order to remove the effect of solar activity seen in the long-term variation of the Sq amplitude, we calculated a linear or second-order fitting curve between the solar F10.7 index and Sq amplitude during 1947 to 2013 and examined the residual Sq amplitude, which is defined as the deviation from the fitting curve. As a result, the majority of trends in the residual Sq amplitude that passed through a trend test showed negative values over a wide region. This tendency was relatively strong in Europe, India, the eastern part of Canada, and New Zealand. The relationship between the magnetic field intensity at 100-km altitude and residual Sq amplitude showed an anti-correlation for about 71% of the geomagnetic stations. Furthermore, the residual Sq amplitude at the equatorial station (Addis Ababa) was anti-correlated with the absolute value of the magnetic field inclination. This implies movement of the equatorial electrojet due to the secular variation of the ambient magnetic field.

    An overview of the Interuniversity Upper atmosphere Global Observation NETwork (IUGONET) project is presented. This Japanese program is building a meta-database for ground-based observations of the upper atmosphere, in which metadata connected with various atmospheric radars and photometers, including those located in both polar regions, are archived. By querying the metadata database, researchers are able to access data file/information held by data facilities. Moreover, by utilizing our analysis software, users can download, visualize, and analyze upper-atmospheric data archived in or linked with the system. As a future development, we are looking to make our database interoperable with others.

    Background: The Interuniversity Upper atmosphere Global Observation NETwork (IUGONET) project is a 6-year research project which started in 2009. The objective of this project is to establish a metadata database of various ground-based observation data covering a wide region from the Sun to the Earth; this will encourage more studies on the mechanisms of long-term variations in the upper atmosphere.
    Findings: For archiving purposes, the metadata database system for cross-searching various data distributed across many universities and institute was developed based on the existing repository software called DSpace as the core component and the Space Physics Archive Search and Extract (SPASE) data model as the metadata format. The IUGONET metadata database is still in operation since it was released in March 2012. The system is continuously examined, tested, and updated to improve its quality. The OpenSearch interface in the IUGONET metadata database allows the user to use external applications easily for exchanging metadata and/or for analyzing data.
    Conclusions: We conducted self-examination of our product, which was added for planning future directions of the IUGONET project.

    In order to understand the mechanism of global-scale phenomena in the upper atmosphere, multidisciplinary researches using many kinds of data are important. An infrastructure to access to many kinds of data on the Internet is one of the keys to the multidisciplinary researches. The Inter-university Upper atmosphere Global Observation NETwork (IUGONET) project solved this problem by developing a metadata database to provide information such as URL of database or each data .le, which are managed dispersively by several institutes. Because the metadata database covers a wide scienti.c .eld, it is likely that non-specialized users can not easily select a right search phrase. We connected an associative search engine which is called GETAssoc with the metadata database, in order to get the related words and to generate re-query phrases by using them automatically. We collected metadata from SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System to create the dictionary for associative search. We show that the prepared dictionary gives the related terms as expected for generating re-query phrases.

    This paper reports on the benchmark test of the metadata management system developed by the Inter-university Upper atmosphere Global Observation NETwork (IUGONET) project. The IUGONET metadata management system consists of the metadata reception module based on file repositories of Git, which is a widely-used version control software, and the metadata import module to register metadata to the metadata database using the DSpace commands. We made the performance assessments for these two modules in terms of the processing speed for registering/importing metadata both on a native Linux platform and a virtualized Linux platform. As a result, the metadata reception module processes properly eve millions of registered metadata within several minutes at most, showing roughly the similar performance for the native and virtualized platform. On the other hand, the metadata import module needs much longer processing times of several to a few tens of hours for the same amount of metadata. As compared with the virtualized platform, the native platform gives a four times faster speed for updating indices for the built-in search engine based on Lucene. From a perspective of the regular operation of the metadata management system, the metadata import module runs more efficiently on the native Linux platform and it is estimated by our performance test that it takes about 5 hours to newly import 105 metadata files and subsequently takes about 21 hours to update the Lucene indices for the registered metadata of 5 × 106 in total.

    In the IUGONET (Inter-university Upper atmosphere Global Observation NETwork) project, we have developed UDAS (iUgonet Data Analysis Software), which is a software to visualize and analyze various kinds of upper atmospheric data distributed by five universities/institutes (Tohoku Univ., Nagoya Univ., Kyoto Univ., Kyushu Univ., and NIPR). UDAS is a plug-in software of TDAS (THEMIS Data Analysis Software suite) written in IDL (Interactive Data Language), and thus can call useful routines to visualize and analyze time series data and GUI included in TDAS. We released a beta version of UDAS at the IUGONET website in May, 2011, and a formal version in February, 2012. We are planning to incorporate UDAS into TDAS and release it from the THEMIS software website after September, 2012. Automatic test tools for the UDAS programs were developed to reduce the workload for the development team. Furthermore, we built an executable file of TDAS that can run on the IDL Virtual Machine environment without any IDL licenses and released it for public testing. These developments will contribute to the promotion of the use of the UDAS and the ground-based observational data distributed by the IUGONET institutions.

    The spatial evolution of vortex-like flow structures induced by a negative sudden impulse (SI-) is studied on the basis of SuperDARN King Salmon HF radar (KSR) with other ground and satellite data. A large dip in the solar wind density induced a fairly large SI- with a SYM-H amplitude of similar to 40 nT. The SI- induced ionospheric flow signatures in the evening sector (MLT similar to 19 h) were observed by KSR as a westward flow associated with the preliminary impulse (PI) followed by a more intense eastward flow with the main impulse (MI) in the sub-auroral region of the magnetic latitude similar to 60-70 deg, consistent with the local ground magnetic field observations. Following the first PI-MI flow sequence, KSR saw a second and possibly third sequence of flow variation which were much smaller in flow amplitude than the first pair but showed qualitatively very similar flow variations and latitudinal/longitudinal propagation characteristics. These observations can be interpreted as aftershocks of the first PI-MI; the same sequence of vortices and field-aligned currents were generated and then drifted anti-sunward with the same mechanism, namely the pumping motion of the dayside magnetosphere. These results are qualitatively consistent with predictions suggested by recent numerical simulations. Citation: Hori, T., A. Shinbori, N. Nishitani, T. Kikuchi, S. Fujita, T. Nagatsuma, O.

    To determine the characteristics and origin of observed storm-time electron density enhancements in the polar cap, and to investigate the spatial extent (noon-midnight direction) of associated O+ ion outflows, we analyzed nearly simultaneous observations of such electron density enhancements from the Akebono satellite and ion upflows from the Polar satellite during a geomagnetic storm occurring on 6 April 2000. The Akebono satellite observed substantial electron density enhancements by a factor of similar to 10-90 with a long duration of similar to 15 h at similar to 2 R-E in the southern polar region. The Polar satellite outflow measurements in the northern polar cap at similar to 7-4 R-E exhibited velocity filtering of the similar to 100 eV to similar to 0 eV (from the spacecraft potential) ion outflow from the cleft ion fountain, with resultant temperatures declining from similar to 3 eV to 0.03 eV with increasing distance from the cusp. Similar velocity filtering was detected in the southern polar cap at similar to 1.8-3.5 RE. The region of O+ ion outflows with fluxes exceeding 5 x 10(8) /cm(2)/s (mapped to 1000 km altitude) extended similar to 10 degrees MLAT (similar to 1000 km) at the ionosphere from the cusp/cleft into the dayside polar cap at similar to 2.5 RE. These coordinated Akebono-Polar observations are consistent with the development of storm-time electron density enhancements in the polar cap as a result of the bulk outflow of low-energy plasma as part of the cleft ion fountain. The large spatial scale, large ion fluxes, and the long duration indicate significant supply of very-low-energy O+ ions to the magnetosphere through this region.

    The magnetic local time and latitude dependence of amplitude of the main impulse (MI) of geomagnetic sudden commencements (SCs) and its seasonal variation have been investigated using high time resolution (1-3 sec) geomagnetic data in the latitudinal range 27-70 degrees for the period 1996-2010. The daytime distribution of the SC-MI amplitude in the sub-auroral and middle latitudes (35-60 degrees) is similar to the DP-2 type geomagnetic variation which shows negative and positive changes in the morning and afternoon, respectively. The magnetic field variation is reversed around the magnetic latitude of 63-65 degrees. This suggests that a pair of field-aligned currents (FACs), resembling the region-1 (R-1) FACs, is located near the magnetic latitude of 63-65 degrees. The nighttime SC amplitude is enhanced significantly in the low and middle latitudes (27-60 degrees). The enhancement is due to the magnetic effect produced by the SC-MI FACs. In the nighttime auroral latitude (63-65 degrees), the SC amplitude decreases steeply due to the enhanced westward auroral electrojet associated with the compression of the magnetosphere. The size of the diurnal variation tends to increase significantly during the summer, compared with that during the winter. This seasonal variation suggests that the DP-2 type ionospheric currents (ICs) and FACs generated during the SC-MI phase are intensified by increased ionospheric conductivities during the summer. It can be concluded that the large-scale MI current system in the ionosphere and magnetosphere is voltage generator.

    In order to clarify the global distribution of ionospheric currents during a geomagnetic storm, we analyzed ground magnetic disturbances from high latitudes to the magnetic equator for the storm on September 7-8, 2002, with the minimum SYM-H value of -168 nT. In this analysis, we investigated magnetic field deviations in the northward component from the SYM-H, as functions of the dipole magnetic latitude (DMLAT) and the magnetic local time (MLT). During the main phase of the storm, the deviations at the low latitudes (10 degrees-35 degrees in DMLAT) were positive/negative in the dawn/dusk (0-9/11-24 h MLT) sector. On the other hand, the deviations at the dayside middle latitudes (35 degrees-55 degrees in DMLAT) were negative/positive in the morning/afternoon (6-12/13-15 h MLT) sector. The local time distribution at the low latitudes may represent the dawn-dusk asymmetry of the storm time ring current, while that at the dayside middle latitudes coincides with the DP2 currents due to the convection electric field associated with the Region 1 field-aligned currents (R1 FACs). All over the nightside middle latitude, the deviations were positive. This implies the direct effect of the R1 FACs through the Biot-Savart's law. At the geomagnetic equator, the eastward and westward electrojets were intensified on the day and nightside, respectively, being caused by the penetrated dawn-to-dusk convection electric field. We found that the MLT distribution of the magnetic deviations during the recovery phase was in opposite sense to that during the main phase at the dayside middle latitudes. The reversed magnetic disturbances must be due to the overshielding electric field associated with the Region 2 field-aligned currents (R2 FACs). Similarly, the deviations at the dayside and nightside equator were reversed, indicating penetration of the dusk-to-dawn overshielding electric field into the equatorial ionosphere. Based on the above results, we propose a current system including the ionospheric currents at middle latitudes caused by the R1/R2 FACs, equatorial EEJ/CEJ, and asymmetric ring current, during the main/recovery phase of the geomagnetic storm.

    We have been building the metadata database of the gound-based observational data for upper atmosphere as developers of the Inter-university Uppear atmosphere Global Observation NETwork (IUGONET) project which is a six year research project from fiscal 2009 by the five Japanese universities and institutes. The main purpose of the metadata database to facilitate access is the improvement of accessibility to the various kinds of the observational data which are distributed to many databases in the various institutes. We designed the IUGONET common metadata format which is based on the SPASE data model/metadata format developed by the SPASE Consortium. Then we customized DSpace, a free repository software, which handles the Dublin Core metadata format by default, to handle the IUGONET common metadata. In this paper, we describe the IUGONET metadata database as a case example of metadata database adaptation for geoscience.

    In this paper we report an outline of data analysis software developed by the IUGONET (Inter-university Upper atmosphere Global Observation NETwork) project. UDAS (iUgonet Data Analysis Software) is the software to visualize and analyze the upper atmospheric data distributed by five universities/institutes (Tohoku Univ., Nagoya Univ., Kyoto Univ., Kyushu Univ., and NIPR) that belong to the IUGONET project. The UDAS is a plug-in software of TDAS (THEMIS Data Analysis Software suite) that is written in IDL (Interactive Data Language) and has many useful routines to visualize and analyze time series data. In addition, the UDAS provides the GUI (Graphical User Interface) for beginners of IDL. A beta version of the UDAS was released at the IUGONET website in May, 2011. Furthermore, future perspectives of the UDAS are described.

    This paper describes an overview of the Inter-university Upper atmosphere Global Observation NETwork (IUGONET) project and briefly mentions important products to be developed in the project. It is an inter-university program by the National Institute of Polar Research, Tohoku University, Nagoya University, Kyoto University, and Kyushu University to build a database of metadata for ground-based observations of the upper atmosphere. The metadata database will be of great help to researchers in efficiently finding and obtaining observational data spread over the universities and institutes. This should also facilitate synthetic analysis of multi-disciplinary data, which will lead to new types of research in the upper atmosphere. The IUGONET development team designs its metadata format based on the SPASE (Space Physics Archive Search and Extract) data model. Some modifications depending on characteristics of ground-based observations of the upper atmosphere are added. The metadata database system is built on the platform of DSpace with customizations according to the IUGONET metadata. In addition, an analysis software for the observational data provided by the IUGONET institutions is developed based on the TDAS (THEMIS Data Analysis Software suite) library written in IDL (Interactive Data Language).

    We constructed an empirical model of the electron density profile with solar zenith angle (SZA) dependence in the polar cap during geomagnetically quiet periods using 63 months of Akebono satellite observations at solar maximum. The electron density profile exhibits a transition at similar to 2000 km altitude only under dark conditions. The electron density and scale height at low altitudes change drastically, by factors of 25 (at 2300 km altitude) and 2.0, respectively, as the SZA increases from 90 degrees to 120 degrees. The SZA dependence of the ion and electron temperatures is also investigated statistically on the basis of data obtained by the Intercosmos satellites and European Incoherent Scatter (EISCAT) Svalbard radar (ESR). A drastic change in the electron temperature occurs near the terminator, similarly to that in the electron density profile obtained by the Akebono satellite. The sum of the ion and electron temperatures obtained by the ESR (similar to 6500 K at similar to 1050 km altitude under sunlit conditions and similar to 3000 K at similar to 750 km altitude under dark conditions) agrees well with the scale height at low altitudes obtained from the Akebono observations, assuming that the temperature is constant and that O(+) ions are dominant. Comparisons between the present statistical results (SZA dependence of the electron density and ion and electron temperatures) and modeling studies of the polar wind indicate that the plasma density profile (especially of the O(+) ion density) in the polar cap is strongly controlled by solar radiation onto the ionosphere by changing ion and electron temperatures in the ionosphere during geomagnetically quiet periods.

    Observations of Poynting fluxes associated with onset of convection electric fields are essential for understanding of electromagnetic energy transport from the solar wind toward the magnetosphere leading to changes in the convection electric field, which is one of the most fundamental parameters in the magnetosphere-ionosphere coupled system. We present Cluster multispacecraft observations of Poynting fluxes associated with abrupt changes in large-scale electric fields during sudden commencements and southward turning of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF). The Cluster spacecraft detected Poynting fluxes dominated by the field-aligned upward component during the preliminary impulse of sudden commencements and in the initial period after southward turning of the IMF. The upward Poynting flux indicates existence of Alfven waves transporting electromagnetic energy from the ionosphere toward the magnetosphere leading to magnetospheric convection changes. The waveguide model and global magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulation calculating evolution of the Poynting flux following solar wind pressure enhancements also show upward Poynting fluxes propagating from the ionosphere toward the magnetosphere faster than the propagation of compressional waves. We conclude that the ionosphere acts as a channel to transmit electromagnetic energy supplied as field-aligned currents toward a wide region in the magnetosphere-ionosphere system instantaneously, leading to changes in magnetospheric convection electric fields.

    Velocity distributions of upflowing ions in the polar ionosphere are crucial to understand their destinations. Natural plasma wave observations by the plasma wave and sounder experiments and thermal ion observations by the suprathermal ion mass spectrometer onboard the Akebono satellite at similar to 9000 km altitude in the polar magnetosphere during the geomagnetic storms showed that ions in the region of enhanced electron density in the polar cap were dominated by very-low-energy O+ ions (similar to 85%) with upward velocities of 4-10 km s(-1), corresponding to streaming energies of 1.3-8.4 eV. The fluxes of very-low-energy upflowing O+ ions exceeded 1 x 10(9) cm(-2) s(-1) (mapped to 1000 km altitude) across wide regions. These signatures are consistent with high-density plasma supplied by the cleft ion fountain mechanism. Trajectory calculations of O+ ions based on the Akebono observations as the initial condition showed the transport paths and accelerations of the O+ ions and indicated that the velocities of the very-low-energy upflowing O+ ions through the dayside polar cap are enough to reach the magnetosphere under strong convection. The calculations suggest the importance of the very-low-energy upflowing O+ ions with large fluxes in the total O+ ion supply toward the magnetosphere, especially the near-Earth tail region and inner magnetosphere. The initially very-low-energy O+ ions can contribute significantly to the ring current formation during geomagnetic storms since some of the O+ ions were transported into the ring current region with typical energies of ring current ions (several tens of keV) in the trajectory calculations.

    Occurrence features of the preliminary impulse (PI) of geomagnetic sudden commencement (SC) both in the Pacific Ocean and South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) regions were investigated using the long-term magnetic field data obtained from the Circum-pan Pacific Magnetometer Network (CPMN) and NICT Space Weather Monitoring (NSWM) magnetometer networks. The low-latitude preliminary reverse impulse (PRI) at Okinawa (OKI: dip latitude = 37.97 degrees) in the Pacific Ocean region appeared in all the magnetic local time (MLT) sectors with the peak occurrence rate of 40% around noon. On the other hand, the PRI occurrence rate at Santa Maria (SMA: dip latitude = -34.35 degrees) near the center of the SAA region showed a significant enhancement in the daytime sector (0800-1600 h, MLT) with the peak value of 80%, which resembles the occurrence feature of the equatorial PRI. Moreover, the PRI amplitude around noon at SMA was about 3.0 times larger than that at OKI. From the calculation of the ionospheric conductivity derived from the IRI-2007 and NRLMSISE-00 models, it is shown that the height-integrated conductivity was more enhanced in the SAA region (SMA), where the ambient magnetic field intensity is weak, compared with that in the Pacific Ocean region (OKI). Therefore, the anomalous increase of the PRI occurrence and amplitude is caused by the significant enhancement of the ionospheric conductivity due to the weakness of the ambient magnetic field intensity in the SAA region.

    The penetration of magnetospheric electric fields to the magnetic equator has been investigated for two intense magnetic storms that occurred on 31 March 2001 and 6 November 2001. The digital ground magnetic data from equatorial station Tirunelveli (TIR, 0.17 degrees S geomagnetic latitude (GML)) and low-latitude station Alibag (ABG, 10.17 degrees N GML) have been used to identify the storm time electrojet index, EEJ(Dis), which is the difference of the magnetic field variations between TIR and ABG after removing the quiet day variations. The appearance of enhanced DP 2 currents and counterelectrojets (CEJ) during the main and recovery phases of the magnetic storms is possibly due to prompt penetration of electric fields from the high latitudes. These signatures can be interpreted as a clear indicator of the eastward and westward electric fields at the equator. The observed results suggest that the magnitude of the equatorial ionospheric currents driven by the penetrating electric fields is very sensitive to ionospheric conductivity (which depends on local time). Moreover, the intensity of the DP 2 currents started decreasing during the end of the main phase of the storm despite the large negative southward IMF Bz, indicating the dominance of a well-developed shielding electric field for 1 h. As an effect of penetrating electric fields at the equator, the equatorial ionization anomaly is enhanced during the main phase (because of strong eastward electric field) and is inhibited or reduced due to the strong CEJ (because of westward electric field) during the recovery phase.

    The transient response of convection electric fields in the inner magnetosphere to southward turning of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) is investigated using in-situ electric field observations by the CRRES and Akebono spacecraft. Electric fields earthward of the inner edge of the electron plasma sheet show quick responses simultaneously with change in ionospheric electric fields, which indicates the arrival of the first signal related to southward turning. A coordinated observation of the electric field by the CRRES and Akebono spacecraft separated by 5 RE reveals a simultaneous increase in the dawn-dusk electric field in a wide region of the inner magnetosphere. A quick response associated with the southward turning of the IMF is also identified in in-situ magnetic fields. It indicates that the southward turning of the IMF initiates simultaneous (less than 1 min) enhancements of ionospheric electric fields, convection electric fields in the inner magnetosphere, and the ring or tail current and region 2 FACs. In contrast, a quick response of convection electric fields is not identified in the electron plasma sheet. A statistical study using 161 events of IMF orientation change in 1991 confirms a prompt response within 5 min for 80% of events earthward of the electron plasma sheet, while a large time lag of more than 30 min is identified in electric fields in the electron plasma sheet. The remarkable difference in the response of electric fields indicates that electric fields in the electron plasma sheet are weakened by high conductance in the magnetically conjugated auroral ionosphere.

    Statistical analysis of the main impulse (MI) amplitude of geomagnetic sudden commencements (SCs) in a region from the middle latitudes to equator has been made using the long-term geomagnetic field data obtained from the Yap (geomagnetic latitude, θ = 0.38°), Guam (θ = 5.22°), Okinawa (θ = 16.54°), Kakioka (θ = 27.18°), Memanbetsu (θ = 35.16°), and St. Paratunka (θ = 45.58°) stations. The magnetic local time (MLT) dependence of SC amplitude in the middle latitudes showed magnetic field variations produced by two-cell ionospheric currents (DP 2-type currents) which are driven by the dawn-to-dusk electric field accompanying a pair of field-aligned currents (FACs). The effect of the DP 2-type currents at least expands to the low latitude (θ = 16.54°). In this region, the DL part of SC produced by the enhanced Chapman-Ferraro currents can be dominant, but the DP part of SC contaminated 7% of the DL one. On the other hand, at the daytime equator between 8:00 and 16:00 (MLT), the SC amplitude is considerably enhanced with its peak amplitude of 3.24 (normalized SYM-H value) around 11:00 (MLT) due to the Cowling effect. Another interesting point is that the SC amplitude in the nighttime sector was enhanced at all the stations again, and its peak value increases with increasing magnetic latitude. This result suggests that the effect of the FACs associated with the MI phase of SC expands to the equator. Copyright 2009 by the American Geophysical Union.

    Meridional electron density distributions above 45 degrees invariant latitude (ILAT) during geomagnetically quiet periods are statistically studied. Electron density data were obtained from plasma waves observed by the Akebono satellite from March 1989 to February 1991 (near solar maximum) in an altitude range of 274-10,500 km. Field-aligned electron density profiles were fitted by the sum of exponential and power law functions. The transition height, where the power law term equals the exponential term, is highest in the summer (at low solar zenith angle (SZA)) at similar to 4000 km and lowest in the winter (at high SZA) at similar to 1800 km in a region of ILAT &gt;= 70 degrees; this is caused by the larger scale height in the summer (similar to 550 km) than that in the winter (similar to 250 km). The largest seasonal variation and SZA dependence of the electron density are found at an altitude of similar to 2000 km with a factor of similar to 50 (similar to 10(4) /cc in the summer, similar to 10(3) /cc in the winter) in the trough, auroral, and polar cap regions. The seasonal variation and SZA dependence are smaller, about a factor of 5-10, above similar to 5000 km. Day-night asymmetries in each season (within a factor of 5) are smaller than the seasonal variation. The scale height is larger in the dayside than in the nightside in each season. These results indicate that photoionization processes in the ionosphere strongly control electron density distributions up to at least similar to 5000 km in the trough, auroral, and polar cap regions.

    Electric field and potential distributions in the inner magnetosphere during geomagnetic storms have been investigated using the Akebono/EFD data. Using this electric field, we study injection of ring current particles and acceleration of radiation belt electrons by single-particle calculations. During the main phase, the dawn-dusk electric field is intensified especially in a range of 2 &lt; L &lt; 5 with a maximum amplitude of 6 mV/m on the duskside, and a two-cell convection pattern with a potential difference of 180 kV is identified. The convection pattern on the equatorial plane is significantly distorted with a large potential drop of 70 kV on the dawn and dusk sectors, indicating an intrinsic source of large-scale electric field in the inner magnetosphere. The plasma sheet ions are gathered into the dusk to premidnight sector in the inner magnetosphere in the region of enhanced electric field due to the strong E x B drift. The ions are transported into around 4 R-E with an acceleration of more than 1 order of magnitude within 40 min, conserving the first adiabatic invariants. Relativistic electrons with initial energy of some hundreds of kiloelectron volts at 5 R-E are energized to more than 100 keV for 3 hours. The energy spectrum during the recovery phase of 9 October 1990 geomagnetic storm observed by the CRRES satellite is reproduced without the radial diffusion or nonadiabatic acceleration by plasma waves. It is possible that this acceleration process is the inhomogeneity of the large-scale electric field, which corresponds to the del x E term along orbits of electrons around the Earth.

    In order to clarify the generation mechanism of Z-mode waves observed in the equatorial plasmasphere, the growth rate of Z-mode electromagnetic waves has been calculated under the higher-order cyclotron interaction process. Z-mode waves can interact with some tens of keV electrons with large pitch angles even in the dense cold background, and the amplitude is consistent with the Akebono plasma wave measurements. UHR and whistler mode waves are also excited by the same electron distribution, and this is also consistent with observations. The origin of these energetic electrons are identified as the ring current electrons injected into the plasmasphere by the intense large-scale electric field during geomagnetic storms, accelerated perpendicular to the ambient magnetic field and confined around the geomagnetic equator conserving the first and second adiabatic invariants. Since the intensity of Z-mode and UHR waves is associated with the development and decay of the ring current, ring current particles are most possible candidate for the free energy source of these waves.

    Analysis of the plasma wave observation data provided by the plasma waves and sounder experiment (PWS) on board the Akebono satellite frequently reveals the presence of electrostatic electron cyclotron harmonic (ESCH) waves in the low-latitude region (MLAT &lt; 45 degrees) of the plasmasphere within an altitude range from about 3000 km to the apogee of the satellite (initial apogee was 10,500 km). Even at moderate or low geomagnetic activity, intense ESCH waves often appear near the equatorial region of the plasmasphere above the upper hybrid resonance (UHR) frequency at the lowest harmonic number branch of the f(Qn) ESCH waves. We identified these plasma waves as the equatorial plasmasphere f(Qn) waves (EP-f(Qn)). The spectra of the EP-f(Qn) waves are characterized by a narrow band structure and by a strong nature, with a wave intensity that ranges from 3.46 x 10(-8) to 3.31 X 10(-4) V/m. The maximum intensity is nearly coincident with the upper limit of the PWS receiver in the low-gain mode. Statistical analysis results reveal that the EP-f(Qn) waves are observable in all the local time sectors; however, the occurrence probability shows a clear enhancement in the early morning sector of 01-03 MLT in the plasmasphere. The EP-f(Qn) wave activities are suppressed within a period of strong magnetic disturbances as well as solar minimum phase. The linear dispersion relation analysis using a two-component plasma model reveals that supra-thermal plasma with the energy of about 750 eV and with a large temperature anisotropy (A = T-perp/T-parallel - 1 &gt; 40) must be present in order to realize an appearance of a positive growth rate at the observed frequency and propagation angle of the ESCH waves. Since the hot plasma with such a high anisotropy has not been detected, the validity of the present two-component plasma model remains an open question. The occurrence feature of the ESCH waves showed that there is a constant activation or a constant flow-in of free energy to generate the strong plasma instability of ESCH waves near the post-midnight sector of the plasmasphere. The existence of ESCH waves revealed that the nature of the plasmaspheric plasma is more turbulent and active than has been believed.

    The distribution of the storm-time electric field in the inner magnetosphere has been investigated by using the Akebono/EFD data within a period from 1989 to 1995. During the main phase of geomagnetic storms, the strong electric field appears between L = 2 and L = 6 in both dawn and dusk sectors with the magnitude from 2 to 4 mV/m, and the maximum value appears at L = 3 in the dusk sector. During the recovery and weakly disturbed period, the region with intense electric field moves outward with decreasing the amplitude. This structure of the localized electric field is quite different from the Volland-Stern electric field model, suggesting the existence of another electric field source other than the large-scale convection electric field. During quiet periods, although the electric field fairly follows the corotation electric field, the distribution at L = 3.5 indicates a small deviation from pure corotation.

    Electric field variations in the inner magnetosphere and plasmasphere regions associated with sudden commencements (SCs) are investigated by using the observation data of the Akebono satellite which has been carried out more than 15 years since 1989. 117 of 153 SC events in the low-latitude (MLAT &lt; 45 degrees) region, which occurred within a period from March 1989 to January 1996, showed a shift of the magnetospheric convection electric field with the magnitude of 0.1-3.2 mV/m about 1 min after the electric field signature with a bi-polar waveform due to the passage of fast-mode hydromagnetic (HM) waves. The increase of the convection electric field takes place in the entire magnetic local time sector in the inner magnetosphere. The amplitude does not depend on L-value and magnetic local time but is proportional to the SC amplitude measured at Kakioka. The majority of the electric field enhancements persist for about 4-14 min. The origin of the convection electric field in the inner magnetosphere is a plasma motion caused by the compression of the magnetosphere due to the solar wind shock and discontinuity.

    In order to investigate spatial and temporal variations of fast and slow Z-mode waves frequently observed in the equatorial plasmasphere, statistical studies have been performed by using plasma wave observation data obtained by the Akebono satellite within a period from 1989 to 1995. It has been clarified that fast and slow Z-mode waves are intensified within ±5° of geomagnetic latitudes in an altitude range from 6000 km to the apogee (10500 km) of the satellite without obvious local time dependence. Long-term averaged intensity of fast Z-mode waves has almost the same orders of magnitude as that of slow Z-mode waves. These results indicate that significant part of fast Z-mode waves are not produced by the linear mode conversion process from slow Z-mode waves, but excited by more direct process. Furthermore, the region of intensified fast and slow Z-mode waves has been spread in a wider geomagnetic latitude range of ±10° during geomagnetic storms. These evidences suggest that one of the possible free energy sources is ring current particles injected into the equatorial region of the plasmasphere during geomagnetic storms.

    Variations of cold plasma density distribution and large-scale electric field in the inner magnetosphere and plasmasphere during a geomagnetic storm were investigated by using the observation data of the Akebono satellite which has been carried out for more than 15 yeas since March, 1989. We focus on the super geomagnetic storm on March 13-15, 1989, for which the maximum negative excursion of the Dst index was -589 nT. During the main phase of the magnetic storm, the strong convection electric field with a spatially inhomogeneous structure appears in the inner magnetosphere between L = 2.0 and 7.0. The averaged intensity of the electric field was in a range of about 2.5-9.2 mV/m. The spatial distribution in the magnetic equatorial region indicates that the magnitude within an L-value range of 2.2-7.0 is much larger than that observed at L = 7.0-10.0. Associated with the appearance of the strong convection electric field, the cold plasma density near the trough region around L = 3.0-6.0 was enhanced with one or two order magnitude, compared with that in the magnetically quiet condition. This implies that a mount of the ionospheric plasma may be supplied from the topside ionosphere into the trough and plasmasphere regions by the frictional heating due to the fast plasma convection in the ionosphere as pointed out by previous studies on the enhancements of plasma density in these regions, based on incoherent scatter radar and total electron content (TEC) observations (e.g., Yeh and Foster, 1990; Foster et al., 2004). During the recovery phase of the magnetic storm, the convection electric field observed in the inner magnetosphere and plasmasphere regions recovers within 3-4 days almost up to the level of the magnetically quiet condition.

    Electric and magnetic field variations inside the plasmasphere associated with SCs identified on the ground are analyzed based on the Akebono satellite observations which have been carried out more than 13 years since March 1989. 126 electric field observation data corresponding to SCs show abrupt change of intensity as well as direction within a few minutes inside the plasmasphere. Temporal variations of the electric field showed a bipolar waveform with the amplitude range of 0.2-38 mV/m. The electric field signature is followed by a dumping oscillation with the period of Pc3-4 ranges. The magnetic field variations of 33 SCs also show an abrupt increase of 0.2-65 nT within a few minutes, which indicate the compression of the magnetosphere due to the discontinuity of solar wind. The initial excursion of the electric field during SCs tends to be directed westward. The amplitude does not show a dependence on magnetic local time that has been observed outside the plasmasphere. The magnitude of the electric field variations tends to be proportional with the power of 0.6 to the magnetic field variation in the plasmasphere. The Poynting vector of the initial SC impulse is directed toward the earth, which suggests that energy of magnetic disturbances associated with SCs propagates toward the earth inside the plasmasphere with the refraction due to the plasma density gradient. One of the most interesting results from the present study is that a DC offset of the Ey component of the electric field appears after the initial electric field impulse associated with SCs. This signature is interpreted to be a magnetospheric convection electric field penetration into the inner plasmasphere (L=2.5). The intensity of the offset of the Ey field gradually increases by 0.5-2.0 mV/m about 1-2 minutes after the onset of the initial electric field impulse and persists about 10-30 minutes.

    Plasma wave phenomena associated with sudden commencements (SC) are analyzed using the database of the Akebono satellite observations that have been carried out for more than 13 years since March 1989. All the 719 data sets simultaneously observed in the periods of SC events show that plasma waves are enhanced with one-to-one correspondence to SCs in entire regions of the polar cap, auroral zone, and plasmasphere within a response time of +/-90 s. In the middle latitude and equatorial regions of the plasmasphere, intensification and frequency shift of electromagnetic whistler mode, LHR waves, and ion cyclotron harmonic waves are found. The electric field variations in this region also show clear response to the onset of SCs with the amplitude of 0.2-30 mV/m. The variations are observed in the nightside as well as dayside sectors, and no clear dependence of magnetic latitude, local time, and L shell is found. On the other hand, electrostatic whistler mode waves and electromagnetic ion cyclotron waves which show broadband spectra are generated in the high-latitude region. Spectra of low-energy particles observed simultaneously with the enhancement of these plasma waves show that electron fluxes are enhanced in all of pitch angle bins of the low-energy particle detector onboard the Akebono satellite. Near the cusp region, the ion fluxes are more enhanced in the upward direction than in the downward direction along the magnetic field lines. In about half of the cases of the high-latitude events, sudden appearance and intensification of AKR are also found after the onsets of SC. The delay time between the onsets of SC and AKR enhancement shows several minutes with the average time of 5.7 min. Time differences between the onsets of SC measured at Kakioka Magnetic Observatory and plasma wave enhancements observed by the Akebono satellite show positive correlation with possible delay time according to the propagation route of SC disturbances. Propagation character of SC disturbances shows two group signatures: one group takes a route which crosses the geomagnetic equator region with an average speed of 389.5 km/s. The speed is almost consistent with plasmaspheric fast-mode MHD wave velocity. The other group takes a route which starts from the dayside cusp region. In the second case, the SC disturbances propagate through the polar ionosphere region from the dayside to the nightside sectors with an average speed of 47 km/ s in the X-GSM coordinate corresponding to the ionospheric fast-mode MHD wave velocity.

    The ionospheric plasma in midlatitude moves upward/downward during the geomagnetic sudden commencement causing the HF Doppler frequency changes; SCF (+-) and (-+) on the dayside and nightside, respectively, except for the SCF (+-) in the evening as found by Kikuchi et al. (1985). Although the preliminary and main frequency deviations (PFD, MFD) of the SCF have been attributed to the dusk-to-dawn and dawn-to-dusk potential electric fields, there still remain questions if the positive PFD can be caused by the compressional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) wave and what causes the evening anomaly of the SCF. With the HF Doppler sounder, we show that the dayside ionosphere moves upward toward the Sun during the main impulse (MI) of the SC, when the compressional wave is supposed to push the ionosphere downward. The motion of the ionosphere is shown to be correlated with the equatorial electrojet, matching the potential electric field transmitted with the ionospheric currents from the polar ionosphere. We confirmed that the electric field of the compressional wave is severely suppressed by the conducting ionosphere and reproduced the SC electric fields using the global MHD simulation in which the potential solver is employed. The model calculations well reproduced the preliminary impulse and MI electric fields and their evening anomaly. It is suggested that the electric potential is transmitted from the polar ionosphere to the equator by the zeroth-order transverse magnetic (TM0) mode waves in the Earth-ionosphere waveguide. The near-instantaneous transmission of the electric potential leads to instantaneous global response of the incompressible ionosphere.

    Using in situ observations from the Republic of China Satellite-1 spacecraft, we investigated the time response and local time dependence of the ionospheric electric field at mid-low latitudes associated with geomagnetic sudden commencements (SCs) that occurred from 1999 to 2004. We found that the ionospheric electric field variation associated with SCs instantaneously responds to the preliminary impulse (PI) signature on the ground regardless of spacecraft local time. Our statistical analysis also supports the global instant transmission of electric field from the polar region. In contrast, the peak time detected in the ionospheric electric field is earlier than that of the equatorial geomagnetic field (similar to 20s before in the PI phase). Based on the ground-ionosphere waveguide model, this time lag can be attributed to the latitudinal difference of ionospheric conductivity. However, the local time distribution of the initial excursion of ionospheric electric field shows that dusk-to-dawn ionospheric electric fields develop during the PI phase. Moreover, the westward electric field in the ionosphere, which produces the preliminary reverse impulse of the geomagnetic field on the dayside feature, appears at 18-22h LT where the ionospheric conductivity beyond the duskside terminator (18h LT) is lower than on the dayside. The result of a magnetohydrodynamic simulation for an ideal SC shows that the electric potential distribution is asymmetric with respect to the noon-midnight meridian. This produces the local time distribution of ionospheric electric fields similar to the observed result, which can be explained by the divergence of the Hall current under nonuniform ionospheric conductivity.

    In the IUGONET (Inter-university Upper atmosphere Global Observation NETwork) project, we have developed UDAS (iUgonet Data Analysis Software), which is a software to visualize and analyze various kinds of upper atmospheric data distributed by five universities/institutes (Tohoku Univ., Nagoya Univ., Kyoto Univ., Kyushu Univ., and NIPR). UDAS is a plug-in software of TDAS (THEMIS Data Analysis Software suite) written in IDL (Interactive Data Language), and thus can call useful routines to visualize and analyze time series data and GUI included in TDAS. We released a beta version of UDAS at the IUGONET website in May, 2011, and a formal version in February, 2012. We are planning to incorporate UDAS into TDAS and release it from the THEMIS software website after September, 2012. Automatic test tools for the UDAS programs were developed to reduce the workload for the development team. Furthermore, we built an executable file of TDAS that can run on the IDL Virtual Machine environment without any IDL licenses and released it for public testing. These developments will contribute to the promotion of the use of the UDAS and the ground-based observational data distributed by the IUGONET institutions.

    The spatial evolution of vortex-like flow structures induced by a negative sudden impulse (SI-) is studied on the basis of SuperDARN King Salmon HF radar (KSR) with other ground and satellite data. A large dip in the solar wind density induced a fairly large SI- with a SYM-H amplitude of similar to 40 nT. The SI- induced ionospheric flow signatures in the evening sector (MLT similar to 19 h) were observed by KSR as a westward flow associated with the preliminary impulse (PI) followed by a more intense eastward flow with the main impulse (MI) in the sub-auroral region of the magnetic latitude similar to 60-70 deg, consistent with the local ground magnetic field observations. Following the first PI-MI flow sequence, KSR saw a second and possibly third sequence of flow variation which were much smaller in flow amplitude than the first pair but showed qualitatively very similar flow variations and latitudinal/longitudinal propagation characteristics. These observations can be interpreted as aftershocks of the first PI-MI; the same sequence of vortices and field-aligned currents were generated and then drifted anti-sunward with the same mechanism, namely the pumping motion of the dayside magnetosphere. These results are qualitatively consistent with predictions suggested by recent numerical simulations. Citation: Hori, T., A. Shinbori, N. Nishitani, T. Kikuchi, S. Fujita, T. Nagatsuma, O.

    To determine the characteristics and origin of observed storm-time electron density enhancements in the polar cap, and to investigate the spatial extent (noon-midnight direction) of associated O+ ion outflows, we analyzed nearly simultaneous observations of such electron density enhancements from the Akebono satellite and ion upflows from the Polar satellite during a geomagnetic storm occurring on 6 April 2000. The Akebono satellite observed substantial electron density enhancements by a factor of similar to 10-90 with a long duration of similar to 15 h at similar to 2 R-E in the southern polar region. The Polar satellite outflow measurements in the northern polar cap at similar to 7-4 R-E exhibited velocity filtering of the similar to 100 eV to similar to 0 eV (from the spacecraft potential) ion outflow from the cleft ion fountain, with resultant temperatures declining from similar to 3 eV to 0.03 eV with increasing distance from the cusp. Similar velocity filtering was detected in the southern polar cap at similar to 1.8-3.5 RE. The region of O+ ion outflows with fluxes exceeding 5 x 10(8) /cm(2)/s (mapped to 1000 km altitude) extended similar to 10 degrees MLAT (similar to 1000 km) at the ionosphere from the cusp/cleft into the dayside polar cap at similar to 2.5 RE. These coordinated Akebono-Polar observations are consistent with the development of storm-time electron density enhancements in the polar cap as a result of the bulk outflow of low-energy plasma as part of the cleft ion fountain. The large spatial scale, large ion fluxes, and the long duration indicate significant supply of very-low-energy O+ ions to the magnetosphere through this region.

    Language:English  

    The magnetic local time and latitude dependence of amplitude of the main impulse (MI) of geomagnetic sudden commencements (SCs) and its seasonal variation have been investigated using high time resolution (1-3 sec) geomagnetic data in the latitudinal range 27-70 degrees for the period 1996-2010. The daytime distribution of the SC-MI amplitude in the sub-auroral and middle latitudes (35-60 degrees) is similar to the DP-2 type geomagnetic variation which shows negative and positive changes in the morning and afternoon, respectively. The magnetic field variation is reversed around the magnetic latitude of 63-65 degrees. This suggests that a pair of field-aligned currents (FACs), resembling the region-1 (R-1) FACs, is located near the magnetic latitude of 63-65 degrees. The nighttime SC amplitude is enhanced significantly in the low and middle latitudes (27-60 degrees). The enhancement is due to the magnetic effect produced by the SC-MI FACs. In the nighttime auroral latitude (63-65 degrees), the SC amplitude decreases steeply due to the enhanced westward auroral electrojet associated with the compression of the magnetosphere. The size of the diurnal variation tends to increase significantly during the summer, compared with that during the winter. This seasonal variation suggests that the DP-2 type ionospheric currents (ICs) and FACs generated during the SC-MI phase are intensified by increased ionospheric conductivities during the summer. It can be concluded that the large-scale MI current system in the ionosphere and magnetosphere is voltage generator.

In this analysis, we investigated magnetic field deviations in the northward component from the SYM-H, as functions of the dipole magnetic latitude (DMLAT) and the magnetic local time (MLT). During the main phase of the storm, the deviations at the low latitudes (10 degrees-35 degrees in DMLAT) were positive/negative in the dawn/dusk (0-9/11-24 h MLT) sector. On the other hand, the deviations at the dayside middle latitudes (35 degrees-55 degrees in DMLAT) were negative/positive in the morning/afternoon (6-12/13-15 h MLT) sector. The local time distribution at the low latitudes may represent the dawn-dusk asymmetry of the storm time ring current, while that at the dayside middle latitudes coincides with the DP2 currents due to the convection electric field associated with the Region 1 field-aligned currents (R1 FACs). All over the nightside middle latitude, the deviations were positive. This implies the direct effect of the R1 FACs through the Biot-Savart's law. At the geomagnetic equator, the eastward and westward electrojets were intensified on the day and nightside, respectively, being caused by the penetrated dawn-to-dusk convection electric field. We found that the MLT distribution of the magnetic deviations during the recovery phase was in opposite sense to that during the main phase at the dayside middle latitudes. The reversed magnetic disturbances must be due to the overshielding electric field associated with the Region 2 field-aligned currents (R2 FACs). Similarly, the deviations at the dayside and nightside equator were reversed, indicating penetration of the dusk-to-dawn overshielding electric field into the equatorial ionosphere. Based on the above results, we propose a current system including the ionospheric currents at middle latitudes caused by the R1/R2 FACs, equatorial EEJ/CEJ, and asymmetric ring current, during the main/recovery phase of the geomagnetic storm.

    We constructed an empirical model of the electron density profile with solar zenith angle (SZA) dependence in the polar cap during geomagnetically quiet periods using 63 months of Akebono satellite observations at solar maximum. The electron density profile exhibits a transition at similar to 2000 km altitude only under dark conditions. The electron density and scale height at low altitudes change drastically, by factors of 25 (at 2300 km altitude) and 2.0, respectively, as the SZA increases from 90 degrees to 120 degrees. The SZA dependence of the ion and electron temperatures is also investigated statistically on the basis of data obtained by the Intercosmos satellites and European Incoherent Scatter (EISCAT) Svalbard radar (ESR). A drastic change in the electron temperature occurs near the terminator, similarly to that in the electron density profile obtained by the Akebono satellite. The sum of the ion and electron temperatures obtained by the ESR (similar to 6500 K at similar to 1050 km altitude under sunlit conditions and similar to 3000 K at similar to 750 km altitude under dark conditions) agrees well with the scale height at low altitudes obtained from the Akebono observations, assuming that the temperature is constant and that O(+) ions are dominant. Comparisons between the present statistical results (SZA dependence of the electron density and ion and electron temperatures) and modeling studies of the polar wind indicate that the plasma density profile (especially of the O(+) ion density) in the polar cap is strongly controlled by solar radiation onto the ionosphere by changing ion and electron temperatures in the ionosphere during geomagnetically quiet periods.

    Observations of Poynting fluxes associated with onset of convection electric fields are essential for understanding of electromagnetic energy transport from the solar wind toward the magnetosphere leading to changes in the convection electric field, which is one of the most fundamental parameters in the magnetosphere-ionosphere coupled system. We present Cluster multispacecraft observations of Poynting fluxes associated with abrupt changes in large-scale electric fields during sudden commencements and southward turning of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF). The Cluster spacecraft detected Poynting fluxes dominated by the field-aligned upward component during the preliminary impulse of sudden commencements and in the initial period after southward turning of the IMF. The upward Poynting flux indicates existence of Alfven waves transporting electromagnetic energy from the ionosphere toward the magnetosphere leading to magnetospheric convection changes. The waveguide model and global magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulation calculating evolution of the Poynting flux following solar wind pressure enhancements also show upward Poynting fluxes propagating from the ionosphere toward the magnetosphere faster than the propagation of compressional waves. We conclude that the ionosphere acts as a channel to transmit electromagnetic energy supplied as field-aligned currents toward a wide region in the magnetosphere-ionosphere system instantaneously, leading to changes in magnetospheric convection electric fields.

    Velocity distributions of upflowing ions in the polar ionosphere are crucial to understand their destinations. Natural plasma wave observations by the plasma wave and sounder experiments and thermal ion observations by the suprathermal ion mass spectrometer onboard the Akebono satellite at similar to 9000 km altitude in the polar magnetosphere during the geomagnetic storms showed that ions in the region of enhanced electron density in the polar cap were dominated by very-low-energy O+ ions (similar to 85%) with upward velocities of 4-10 km s(-1), corresponding to streaming energies of 1.3-8.4 eV. The fluxes of very-low-energy upflowing O+ ions exceeded 1 x 10(9) cm(-2) s(-1) (mapped to 1000 km altitude) across wide regions. These signatures are consistent with high-density plasma supplied by the cleft ion fountain mechanism. Trajectory calculations of O+ ions based on the Akebono observations as the initial condition showed the transport paths and accelerations of the O+ ions and indicated that the velocities of the very-low-energy upflowing O+ ions through the dayside polar cap are enough to reach the magnetosphere under strong convection. The calculations suggest the importance of the very-low-energy upflowing O+ ions with large fluxes in the total O+ ion supply toward the magnetosphere, especially the near-Earth tail region and inner magnetosphere. The initially very-low-energy O+ ions can contribute significantly to the ring current formation during geomagnetic storms since some of the O+ ions were transported into the ring current region with typical energies of ring current ions (several tens of keV) in the trajectory calculations.

    The penetration of magnetospheric electric fields to the magnetic equator has been investigated for two intense magnetic storms that occurred on 31 March 2001 and 6 November 2001. The digital ground magnetic data from equatorial station Tirunelveli (TIR, 0.17 degrees S geomagnetic latitude (GML)) and low-latitude station Alibag (ABG, 10.17 degrees N GML) have been used to identify the storm time electrojet index, EEJ(Dis), which is the difference of the magnetic field variations between TIR and ABG after removing the quiet day variations. The appearance of enhanced DP 2 currents and counterelectrojets (CEJ) during the main and recovery phases of the magnetic storms is possibly due to prompt penetration of electric fields from the high latitudes. These signatures can be interpreted as a clear indicator of the eastward and westward electric fields at the equator. The observed results suggest that the magnitude of the equatorial ionospheric currents driven by the penetrating electric fields is very sensitive to ionospheric conductivity (which depends on local time). Moreover, the intensity of the DP 2 currents started decreasing during the end of the main phase of the storm despite the large negative southward IMF Bz, indicating the dominance of a well-developed shielding electric field for 1 h. As an effect of penetrating electric fields at the equator, the equatorial ionization anomaly is enhanced during the main phase (because of strong eastward electric field) and is inhibited or reduced due to the strong CEJ (because of westward electric field) during the recovery phase.

    The transient response of convection electric fields in the inner magnetosphere to southward turning of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) is investigated using in-situ electric field observations by the CRRES and Akebono spacecraft. Electric fields earthward of the inner edge of the electron plasma sheet show quick responses simultaneously with change in ionospheric electric fields, which indicates the arrival of the first signal related to southward turning. A coordinated observation of the electric field by the CRRES and Akebono spacecraft separated by 5 RE reveals a simultaneous increase in the dawn-dusk electric field in a wide region of the inner magnetosphere. A quick response associated with the southward turning of the IMF is also identified in in-situ magnetic fields. It indicates that the southward turning of the IMF initiates simultaneous (less than 1 min) enhancements of ionospheric electric fields, convection electric fields in the inner magnetosphere, and the ring or tail current and region 2 FACs. In contrast, a quick response of convection electric fields is not identified in the electron plasma sheet. A statistical study using 161 events of IMF orientation change in 1991 confirms a prompt response within 5 min for 80% of events earthward of the electron plasma sheet, while a large time lag of more than 30 min is identified in electric fields in the electron plasma sheet. The remarkable difference in the response of electric fields indicates that electric fields in the electron plasma sheet are weakened by high conductance in the magnetically conjugated auroral ionosphere.

    Statistical analysis of the main impulse (MI) amplitude of geomagnetic sudden commencements (SCs) in a region from the middle latitudes to equator has been made using the long-term geomagnetic field data obtained from the Yap (geomagnetic latitude, theta = 0.38 degrees), Guam (theta = 5.22 degrees), Okinawa (theta = 16.54 degrees), Kakioka (theta = 27.18 degrees), Memanbetsu (theta = 35.16 degrees), and St. Paratunka (theta = 45.58 degrees) stations. The magnetic local time (MLT) dependence of SC amplitude in the middle latitudes showed magnetic field variations produced by two-cell ionospheric currents (DP 2-type currents) which are driven by the dawn-to-dusk electric field accompanying a pair of field-aligned currents (FACs). The effect of the DP 2-type currents at least expands to the low latitude (theta = 16.54 degrees). In this region, the DL part of SC produced by the enhanced Chapman-Ferraro currents can be dominant, but the DP part of SC contaminated 7% of the DL one. On the other hand, at the daytime equator between 8: 00 and 16: 00 (MLT), the SC amplitude is considerably enhanced with its peak amplitude of 3.24 ( normalized SYM-H value) around 11: 00 (MLT) due to the Cowling effect. Another interesting point is that the SC amplitude in the nighttime sector was enhanced at all the stations again, and its peak value increases with increasing magnetic latitude. This result suggests that the effect of the FACs associated with the MI phase of SC expands to the equator.

    Meridional electron density distributions above 45 degrees invariant latitude (ILAT) during geomagnetically quiet periods are statistically studied. Electron density data were obtained from plasma waves observed by the Akebono satellite from March 1989 to February 1991 (near solar maximum) in an altitude range of 274-10,500 km. Field-aligned electron density profiles were fitted by the sum of exponential and power law functions. The transition height, where the power law term equals the exponential term, is highest in the summer (at low solar zenith angle (SZA)) at similar to 4000 km and lowest in the winter (at high SZA) at similar to 1800 km in a region of ILAT &gt;= 70 degrees; this is caused by the larger scale height in the summer (similar to 550 km) than that in the winter (similar to 250 km). The largest seasonal variation and SZA dependence of the electron density are found at an altitude of similar to 2000 km with a factor of similar to 50 (similar to 10(4) /cc in the summer, similar to 10(3) /cc in the winter) in the trough, auroral, and polar cap regions. The seasonal variation and SZA dependence are smaller, about a factor of 5-10, above similar to 5000 km. Day-night asymmetries in each season (within a factor of 5) are smaller than the seasonal variation. The scale height is larger in the dayside than in the nightside in each season. These results indicate that photoionization processes in the ionosphere strongly control electron density distributions up to at least similar to 5000 km in the trough, auroral, and polar cap regions.

    Analysis of the plasma wave observation data provided by the plasma waves and sounder experiment (PWS) on board the Akebono satellite frequently reveals the presence of electrostatic electron cyclotron harmonic (ESCH) waves in the low-latitude region (MLAT &lt; 45 degrees) of the plasmasphere within an altitude range from about 3000 km to the apogee of the satellite (initial apogee was 10,500 km). Even at moderate or low geomagnetic activity, intense ESCH waves often appear near the equatorial region of the plasmasphere above the upper hybrid resonance (UHR) frequency at the lowest harmonic number branch of the f(Qn) ESCH waves. We identified these plasma waves as the equatorial plasmasphere f(Qn) waves (EP-f(Qn)). The spectra of the EP-f(Qn) waves are characterized by a narrow band structure and by a strong nature, with a wave intensity that ranges from 3.46 x 10(-8) to 3.31 X 10(-4) V/m. The maximum intensity is nearly coincident with the upper limit of the PWS receiver in the low-gain mode. Statistical analysis results reveal that the EP-f(Qn) waves are observable in all the local time sectors; however, the occurrence probability shows a clear enhancement in the early morning sector of 01-03 MLT in the plasmasphere. The EP-f(Qn) wave activities are suppressed within a period of strong magnetic disturbances as well as solar minimum phase. The linear dispersion relation analysis using a two-component plasma model reveals that supra-thermal plasma with the energy of about 750 eV and with a large temperature anisotropy (A = T-perp/T-parallel - 1 &gt; 40) must be present in order to realize an appearance of a positive growth rate at the observed frequency and propagation angle of the ESCH waves. Since the hot plasma with such a high anisotropy has not been detected, the validity of the present two-component plasma model remains an open question. The occurrence feature of the ESCH waves showed that there is a constant activation or a constant flow-in of free energy to generate the strong plasma instability of ESCH waves near the post-midnight sector of the plasmasphere. The existence of ESCH waves revealed that the nature of the plasmaspheric plasma is more turbulent and active than has been believed.

    Electric field and potential distributions in the inner magnetosphere during geomagnetic storms have been investigated using the Akebono/EFD data. Using this electric field, we study injection of ring current particles and acceleration of radiation belt electrons by single-particle calculations. During the main phase, the dawn-dusk electric field is intensified especially in a range of 2 &lt; L &lt; 5 with a maximum amplitude of 6 mV/m on the duskside, and a two-cell convection pattern with a potential difference of 180 kV is identified. The convection pattern on the equatorial plane is significantly distorted with a large potential drop of 70 kV on the dawn and dusk sectors, indicating an intrinsic source of large-scale electric field in the inner magnetosphere. The plasma sheet ions are gathered into the dusk to premidnight sector in the inner magnetosphere in the region of enhanced electric field due to the strong E x B drift. The ions are transported into around 4 R-E with an acceleration of more than 1 order of magnitude within 40 min, conserving the first adiabatic invariants. Relativistic electrons with initial energy of some hundreds of kiloelectron volts at 5 R-E are energized to more than 100 keV for 3 hours. The energy spectrum during the recovery phase of 9 October 1990 geomagnetic storm observed by the CRRES satellite is reproduced without the radial diffusion or nonadiabatic acceleration by plasma waves. It is possible that this acceleration process is the inhomogeneity of the large-scale electric field, which corresponds to the del x E term along orbits of electrons around the Earth.

    The distribution of the storm-time electric field in the inner magnetosphere has been investigated by using the Akebono/EFD data within a period from 1989 to 1995. During the main phase of geomagnetic storms, the strong electric field appears between L = 2 and L = 6 in both dawn and dusk sectors with the magnitude from 2 to 4 mV/m, and the maximum value appears at L = 3 in the dusk sector. During the recovery and weakly disturbed period, the region with intense electric field moves outward with decreasing the amplitude. This structure of the localized electric field is quite different from the Volland-Stern electric field model, suggesting the existence of another electric field source other than the large-scale convection electric field. During quiet periods, although the electric field fairly follows the corotation electric field, the distribution at L = 3.5 indicates a small deviation from pure corotation.

    Variations of cold plasma density distribution and large-scale electric field in the inner magnetosphere and plasmasphere during a geomagnetic storm were investigated by using the observation data of the Akebono satellite which has been carried out for more than 15 yeas since March, 1989. We focus on the super geomagnetic storm on March 13-15, 1989, for which the maximum negative excursion of the Dst index was -589 nT. During the main phase of the magnetic storm, the strong convection electric field with a spatially inhomogeneous structure appears in the inner magnetosphere between L = 2.0 and 7.0. The averaged intensity of the electric field was in a range of about 2.5-9.2 mV/m. The spatial distribution in the magnetic equatorial region indicates that the magnitude within an L-value range of 2.2-7.0 is much larger than that observed at L = 7.0-10.0. Associated with the appearance of the strong convection electric field, the cold plasma density near the trough region around L = 3.0-6.0 was enhanced with one or two order magnitude, compared with that in the magnetically quiet condition. This implies that a mount of the ionospheric plasma may be supplied from the topside ionosphere into the trough and plasmasphere regions by the frictional heating due to the fast plasma convection in the ionosphere as pointed out by previous studies on the enhancements of plasma density in these regions, based on incoherent scatter radar and total electron content (TEC) observations (e.g., Yeh and Foster, 1990; Foster et al., 2004). During the recovery phase of the magnetic storm, the convection electric field observed in the inner magnetosphere and plasmasphere regions recovers within 3-4 days almost up to the level of the magnetically quiet condition.

    Electric and magnetic field variations inside the plasmasphere associated with SCs identified on the ground are analyzed based on the Akebono satellite observations which have been carried out more than 13 years since March 1989. 126 electric field observation data corresponding to SCs show abrupt change of intensity as well as direction within a few minutes inside the plasmasphere. Temporal variations of the electric field showed a bipolar waveform with the amplitude range of 0.2-38 mV/m. The electric field signature is followed by a dumping oscillation with the period of Pc3-4 ranges. The magnetic field variations of 33 SCs also show an abrupt increase of 0.2-65 nT within a few minutes, which indicate the compression of the magnetosphere due to the discontinuity of solar wind. The initial excursion of the electric field during SCs tends to be directed westward. The amplitude does not show a dependence on magnetic local time that has been observed outside the plasmasphere. The magnitude of the electric field variations tends to be proportional with the power of 0.6 to the magnetic field variation in the plasmasphere. The Poynting vector of the initial SC impulse is directed toward the earth, which suggests that energy of magnetic disturbances associated with SCs propagates toward the earth inside the plasmasphere with the refraction due to the plasma density gradient. One of the most interesting results from the present study is that a DC offset of the Ey component of the electric field appears after the initial electric field impulse associated with SCs. This signature is interpreted to be a magnetospheric convection electric field penetration into the inner plasmasphere (L=2.5). The intensity of the offset of the Ey field gradually increases by 0.5-2.0 mV/m about 1-2 minutes after the onset of the initial electric field impulse and persists about 10-30 minutes.

    Plasma wave phenomena associated with sudden commencements (SC) are analyzed using the database of the Akebono satellite observations that have been carried out for more than 13 years since March 1989. All the 719 data sets simultaneously observed in the periods of SC events show that plasma waves are enhanced with one-to-one correspondence to SCs in entire regions of the polar cap, auroral zone, and plasmasphere within a response time of +/-90 s. In the middle latitude and equatorial regions of the plasmasphere, intensification and frequency shift of electromagnetic whistler mode, LHR waves, and ion cyclotron harmonic waves are found. The electric field variations in this region also show clear response to the onset of SCs with the amplitude of 0.2-30 mV/m. The variations are observed in the nightside as well as dayside sectors, and no clear dependence of magnetic latitude, local time, and L shell is found. On the other hand, electrostatic whistler mode waves and electromagnetic ion cyclotron waves which show broadband spectra are generated in the high-latitude region. Spectra of low-energy particles observed simultaneously with the enhancement of these plasma waves show that electron fluxes are enhanced in all of pitch angle bins of the low-energy particle detector onboard the Akebono satellite. Near the cusp region, the ion fluxes are more enhanced in the upward direction than in the downward direction along the magnetic field lines. In about half of the cases of the high-latitude events, sudden appearance and intensification of AKR are also found after the onsets of SC. The delay time between the onsets of SC and AKR enhancement shows several minutes with the average time of 5.7 min. Time differences between the onsets of SC measured at Kakioka Magnetic Observatory and plasma wave enhancements observed by the Akebono satellite show positive correlation with possible delay time according to the propagation route of SC disturbances. Propagation character of SC disturbances shows two group signatures: one group takes a route which crosses the geomagnetic equator region with an average speed of 389.5 km/s. The speed is almost consistent with plasmaspheric fast-mode MHD wave velocity. The other group takes a route which starts from the dayside cusp region. In the second case, the SC disturbances propagate through the polar ionosphere region from the dayside to the nightside sectors with an average speed of 47 km/ s in the X-GSM coordinate corresponding to the ionospheric fast-mode MHD wave velocity.

    Geomagnetic storms caused by solar wind disturbances related to a solar surface phenomenon (solar flare) and a sudden change in the solar wind structure lead to a severe change in the electromagnetic and plasma environment in a wide region from the magnetosphere to ionosphere. In this study, we analyzed solar wind, geomagnetic field and global total electron content (TEC) data to clarify the temporal and spatial variations of ionospheric electric fields and electron density associated with geomagnetic storms. As a result, a two-cell ionospheric convection is enhanced significantly in the polar regions and the polar electric field penetrates to the equatorial ionosphere during the main phase of the geomagnetic storms. Associated with the instantaneous distribution of storm-time electric field, the electron density enhancement begins in the midlatitude ionosphere and propagates to the low-latitude ionosphere as the geomagnetic storms develop.

    In the present study, we analyzed geomagnetic field data obtained from geomagnetic observatories distributed from both the poles and equator together with solar wind data in order to investigate the characteristics of global geomagnetic field and thermospheric wind variations during geomagnetic storms. As a result, during the main phase of geomagnetic storm caused by southward turning of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF), the region-1 type of ionospheric currents were developed from the polar to middle-latitude regions and the eastward equatorial electrojet (EEJ) current on the dayside was intensified due to penetration of the polar ionospheric electric field to the equator. On the other hand, during the recovery phase of geomagnetic field caused by northward turning of the IMF, the region-2 type of ionospheric currents appeared in the middle-latitude regions. Moreover, the westward EEJ current driven by the region-2 electric field was developed on the dayside during this period.

    We studied the behavior of atmospheric waves as well as long-term variations of the monthly mean winds in the Mesosphere-Lower Thermosphere (MLT) region at 60-150 km altitude, focusing on the coupling processes between different atmospheric layers due to upward propagating waves. We utilized archived data-sets (IUGONET) collected by a number of meteor and medium frequency (MF) radars operated continuously for many years since 1990’s at low latitudes in Asia and Pacific regions. We investigated seasonal variations of the atmospheric gravity activity in the tropics, and found its relation with cloud convection in the lower atmosphere. Monthly mean zonal and meridional winds exhibited peculiar variations with semi-annual (SAO), annual, quasi-biennial (QBO), and intra-seasonal periods. Our analysis suggested importance of interaction of atmospheric waves with the mean flow to drive these regular and irregular variations. The mean meridional winds showed a trend with a decadal time scale.

    太陽フレア現象によって放出される高密度・高温プラズマ雲が地球磁気圏に衝突することによって発生する磁気急始(SC)現象は、開始時刻やその発生要因が見極めやすい変動形態を持つため、太陽風-磁気圏-電離圏相互作用という磁気圏物理の基礎課程を理解する上で非常に重要な擾乱現象である。本年度は、磁気赤道から中緯度領域におけるSCの磁場振幅の磁気緯度と磁気地方時の分布を明らかするために、ヤップ、グアム、沖縄、柿岡、女満別そしてパラツンカの6つの地磁気観測点から得られた長期の地磁気データを用いてSCのMain Impulse(MI)期の磁場振幅の統計解析を行った。その結果、昼間側の中緯度における磁場変動は、圧縮時によって生成される領域1型の沿磁力線電流(FAC)のもたらすtwo-cell型の電離圏Hall電流の作る磁場変化を示し、その影響が少なくとも沖縄付近の低緯度まで広がっていた。一方、低緯度では、磁場振幅が正午付近で最大となる磁気圏界面電流のつくる磁場変動が卓越することを示したが、本研究の精密な解析により、極域起源の電離圏電流の作る磁場変動が約7%含まれることを新たに見出した。さらに、磁気赤道の8時から16時の昼間側において、Cowling効果による顕著なSCの磁場振幅の増大が見受けられ、低緯度の2-3倍に達していた。その最大値を与える磁気地方時は11時付近であった。そして、もう一つの興味深い結果は、磁気赤道から中緯度の全ての領域で真夜中付近を最大とする2次的なSCの磁場振幅の増大が見られたことである。その真夜中付近の振幅は。顕著な磁気緯度の依存性を持っており、磁気緯度の増加とともに振幅が増加するという傾向を示した。このことから、この磁場変動をもたらす原因は、MI期に形成されるFACの作る磁場変化であり、その影響が中緯度や低緯度だけでなく、磁気赤道にまで及んでいることをはじめて示した。

    磁気急始(SC)やそれに続く磁気嵐に伴って引き起こされる内部磁気圏・プラズマ圏内の電流、電場や磁気擾乱の発生並びに発達過程でのプラズマの応答、擾乱の伝播、エネルギーや物質の輸送機構ついては、現在、未発達の分野として残されている。本研究では、内部磁気圏・プラズマ圏におけるSC、その後の磁気嵐の発達過程に呼応した擾乱の発生、エネルギーの伝達や物質の輸送機構について解明することを目的としている。本年度は1989年3月から2003年12月に至るまでの約15年間という長期間のあけぼの衛星の電場並びにプラズマ波動観測データを用いて、磁気嵐における内部磁気圏電場の形成過程とプラズマダイナミクスの解明に向けた解析を行った。その結果、各磁気嵐の主相時においてこれまで存在していなかった空間的に不均質な大電場がL=2.0-7.0の地球近傍の朝側領域と夕方側の内部磁気圏内に形成されていることが判明し、その最大強度は、数10mV/mにまで達していた。また、この電場の最大強度は、磁気嵐の規模に呼応して強くなる傾向を示し、その最大強度をとる位置も地球側へ接近してくるという様相が明らかとなった。特に、この不均質な大電場が主に動径方向を向いているという特徴に本研究では着目し、夜側のプラズマシートから内部磁気圏に注入された環電流粒子の局所的な電荷分離によって形成されるという新たな内部磁気圏電場モデルを提案した。一方、プラズマ圏のプラズマ密度構造と磁気嵐時の電場構造との比較を行った結果、プラズマ密度が局所的に周囲よりも減少している領域にほぼ対応して背景電場が局所的に増加していることが見出され、この局所電場がプラズマ圏構造とダイナミクスに重要な役割を演じていることが明らかとなった。
