Title: The Equatorial Ionosphere
Authors: Reddy, C A
Issue Date: Oct-1986
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: The equatorial ionosphere is a small but scintifically interesting part of the space plasma environment of the Earth. The equatorial 'spread F', the equatorial electrojet and the 'equatorial anomaly" in the F-regionplasma distribution are the most important special phenomena of the equatorial ionosphere. The above phenomena are caused by the plasma electrodynamic processes arising from the specific equatorial geometry of the electric fields being orthogonal to the nearly horizontal geomagnetic field lines. The present status of knowledge about the equatorial ionospheric phenomena is reviewed. Some of the unresolved questions are briefly discussed.
