Ground Based Study
We are investigating auroral electrodynamics using ground based observations. The observational techniques to be used include optical imaging with both narrow-field and all-sky cameras, as well as radar observations using both coherent and incoherent scatter radars.
Four main topics will be investigated:
"Auroral spiral from Poker Flat, Alaska Photo by: Robert Michell"
"Aurora over Fairbanks, Alaska. Photo by: Robert Michell"
Thesis Proposal: Robert G. Michel
"Small-Scale Structures and Motions of Auroral Signatures as Observed From the Ground: A Planned Field Study Using Camera and Radar Observations"
