[PEM16-08] Preliminary report of a sounding rocket experiment to elucidate electron heating in the Sq current focus
- Observations of DC Electric field and VLF band plasma wave –
Keywords:electric field , sounding rocket experiment, Sq current system
It was carried out the S-310-44 sounding rocket experiment at Uchinoura Space Center (USC) at 12:00 LT on January 15, 2016. This rocket passed through near the center of the Sq current system. In addition, scientific observation instruments that are equipped on the rocket also operated normally. In Electric Field Detector (EFD), the antennas have started extension after 67 seconds (altitude 81km) from launch. After 81 seconds (altitude 97km) the full extension, the observation was started. There was not seen the effect by photo electron in observed the electric field data. Here we analyze the electric field data obtained in the S-310-44 sounding rocket. And we describe the derivation result of the electric field that it is important for the investigation of the Sq current system generating mechanism.
