Modeling the Auroral Oval at high-latitude Ionosphere, 2012.10-2013.5
- Utilized ten-year precipitation electron data from SSJ4 on board DMSP to calculate Pederson conductivity and selected out criteria-satisfied events.
- Proposed normalized method to determine the boundaries of auroral oval, and the new method filtered data more precisely(case-by-case comparison) than original threshold method.
- Empirically formulated(through both elliptical and linear fitting)the relationship between oval boundaries and AE in different MLT sectors for both hemispheres. This work was aiming at determining the poleward boundary of subauroral region.
Investigating Seasonal Effect of Plasma Drifts on the Thermospheric Zonal Wind(NNSFC funded), 2010.11-2011.10
- Assisted professor with collecting applicable data about the velocity of plasma drifts and zonal wind.
- Investigated the relationship between plasma drifts and zonal wind with different geomagnetic activity in different seasons.
- Participated in discussing with professor about the mechanisms of how ion and electron density as well as Joule heating are responsible for the observed phenomenon.
- Wrote a summary paper of this work.
WANG Hui, SHEN Yang-Yang, MA Shu-Yin. Comparative study of the Effect of ionospheric plasma flow on thermospheric zonal wind at mid and high latitudes. Chinese Journal of Geophysics, 2013. Submitted.
Programming: Matlab, C/C++, FORTRAN, LaTeX
