Although linkages between solar activity and the earth's climate have been suggested and the 11-year cycle in solar activity evident in sunspot numbers is the most examined example of periodicity in previous studies, no quantitative evidence indic...

We report observations of a noctilucent cloud (NLC) over central Alaska by a ground-based lidar and camera on the night of 9-10 August 2005. The lidar at Poker Flat Research Range (PFRR), Chatanika (65°N, 147°W) measured a maximum integrated backs...

Observations with a meteor radar, two medium-frequency (MF) radars, and a sodium lidar at ALOMAR at Andenes, Norway (69.3°N, 16.0°E) were used to derive tidal winds and temperatures at altitudes from 72 km to 94 km for a period from June 15 to Jul...

Optical observations of flickering aurora by a high-speed imaging photometer system were carried out at Syowa Station in 1998. A comparison between observed parameters of flickering aurora and theoretical values of dispersive Alfvén waves indicate...

This study is a statistical analysis on energy distribution of precipitating electrons, based on CNA (cosmic noise absorption) data obtained from the 256-element imaging riometer in Poker Flat, Alaska (65.11° N, 147.42° W), and optical data measur...

In order to investigate the generation mechanisms of flickering aurora, especially the physical processes producing its temporal and spatial structures, an advanced optical observation system called "a high-speed imaging photometer system" was dev...
