[PEM18-P08] Space weather modelling of the dayside polar ionosphere and thermosphere
Keywords:Polar ionosphere and thermosphere, Space Weather, Modelling
In order to understand and predict the phenomena in the dayside polar ionosphere and thermosphere, we have also made modelling/simulation studies. In particular, we focus on modelling the effects of precipitating particles on the dayside polar ionosphere and thermosphere in the context of the Japanese Space Weather projects. In the present study, we will show some observational and simulation results: for example, the dayside ionospheric disturbances observed with the EISCAT radar system and simulations with a GCM. In addition, we will introduce our attempt to estimate productions of ions, NOx, and HOx in the altitude of 50-500 km due to precipitating particles.
