    Daytime F-region irregularity triggered by rocket-induced ionospheric hole over low latitude

    Unexpected daytime F-region irregularities following the appearance of an ionospheric hole have been observed over low latitude. The irregularities developed initially above the F-region peak height (~ 360 km)...

    Feasibility of a magma ocean dynamo on Mars

    Crustal magnetization of rocks in regions of Mars surface testifies to an era of dynamo activity. I examine the possibility that the dynamo that operated then, in the first 400–600 Ma after Mars formed, was po...

    Feasibility of retrieving dust properties and total column water vapor from solar spectra measured using a lander camera on Mars

    Dust and water vapor are important constituents in the Martian atmosphere, exerting significant influence on the heat balance of the atmosphere and surface. We have developed a method to retrieve optical and p...

    Extreme geomagnetically induced currents

    We propose an emergency alert framework for geomagnetically induced currents (GICs), based on the empirically extreme values and theoretical upper limits of the solar wind parameters and of dB/dt, the time deriva...
