[PEM15-14] Latest installation of FM-CW radar in Peru
Our goals are, (i) to estimate EEJ (Equatorial Electrojet) structure including the generation, variance and modulation of EEJ, (ii) to understand the electrodynamics of EEJ and the generation mechanism of the Equatorial Spread F (ESF) associated with Plasma Bubbles (PBs) and (iii) to reveal the generation mechanisms of ULF pulsation waves at the lower and equatorial latitudes.
In 2018, the new FM-CW radar has been installed in Peru. This FM-CW observation will give the opportunity of the simultaneous ionospheric observation at the Japan local time and the opposite side of Japan (for example dayside and nightside). ICSWSE (International Center for Space Weather Science and Education, Kyushu University) also have the ground-based magnetometer network (MAGDAS) on the world including Peru MAGDAS chain. With the both magnetometer and FM-CW observations, we try to understand the energy transfer and propagation process from the poles to the equator, in the terms of the coupling the solar-magnetosphere-ionosphere-atmosphere.
We will give the detail and current status of FM-CW radar project.
