[PEM04-19] International joint study of EEP effects on the atmospheric minor components during pulsating aurora
Keywords:pulsating aurora, atmospheric minor component
Japanese and Finnish researchers organize an international joint team, and conduct observation campaigns with the EISCAT radars, optical instruments, KAIRA riometer, and VAPs satellites in order to understand generation mechanism of PA-EEP and its impact on the ionosphere and atmosphere. Additionally we will analyze the archived data sets to understand EEP features. These scientific objectives will be accomplished by collaborations with the GEMSIS-RBW model and Sodankyla Ion Chemistry (SIC) model. In this presentation we will introduce some case studies of measurements and model calculations.
