Table 1 Comparison between LSWS features and the results from our study

From: Relationship between day-to-day variability of equatorial plasma bubble activity from GPS scintillation and atmospheric properties from Ground-to-topside model of Atmosphere and Ionosphere for Aeronomy (GAIA) assimilation

LSWS features
(Tsunoda 2005)
Atmospheric longitudinal variability on EPB-active days (our findings) Similarity
East-west shallow perturbation of ionospheric density East-west fluctuation of temperature and wind velocity Good
Enhancement at equator Large amplitude at lower latitudes across equator Good
Appears in afternoon to dusk period Found at any time Good
Zonal wavelengths range from several hundreds to 1000 km Zonal wavelength exceeded 2000 km Inconsistency 1
Stationary to the ground Eastward propagation Inconsistency 2
