Investigation of the structure of the electromagnetic field and related phenomena, generated by the Active Satellite
Abstract
The altitude dependencies of the moduli of the electric field E in the VLF and LF frequency bands (f sub B much less than F less than f sub B) and in the altitude range of the ionosphere Z equals (400 to 2500) km up to Z equals 6000 km (the bottom of the magnetosphere) were calculated by the linear theory. The amplitudes of the field have large maxima in four regions: the axis field (E sub o) close to the direction of the Earth's magnetic field line B sub o, beta approximately 0 degrees, the fields (E sub St), (E sub RevSt) and (E sub Res) in the Storey, Reversed Story and Resonance cones, beta approximately (0 approaches 20) degrees. Their maxima are very pronounced close to the low hybrid frequency F sub L. The nonlinear heating of the magnetoplasma under the action of an electric field Ee (sup iwt) was recently expanded by the macroscopic theory by the author. The velocities, collision frequencies and temperatures of all the constituents of a magnetoplasma  electrons, ions, and neutral particles  are taken into account. Formulae and numerical results are presented for the ionosphere in the frequency band F equals (1 to 10 exp 4) kHz and altitude range Z approximately (100  1000) km. Some results of calculations by the self consistent solution of the basis system of equations are also discussed.
