High latitude studies of the ionosphere E-region using the Sapphire North Radar System
Principal Investigator: Sofko, George J
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: The Sapphire North Radar System uses 2 transmitters, at Sachs Harbour and Rankin Inlet, and a common receiver at Yellowknife. This system measures speeds of structures in the ionosphere (upper atmosphere) in order to study the transfer of energy from the solar wind to the earth. This energy transfer is most apparent during "magnetic storms" when there are displays of northern lights. The researc...
