Latest Ionosphere Stories
Space around Earth is anything but a barren vacuum. The area seethes with electric and magnetic fields that change constantly. Charged particles flow through, moving energy around, creating electric currents, and producing the aurora.
A Naval Research Laboratory instrument designed to study the Earth's thermosphere is part of a future science mission that has been selected by NASA for evaluation for flight.
ESA’s Swarm satellites, which will unravel the complexities of Earth’s magnetic shield, are being put through their paces to ensure that they will withstand the rigors of space.
Researchers at the University of Illinois have become the first to record an airglow signature in the upper atmosphere produced by a tsunami using a camera system based in Maui, Hawaii.
Radio broadcasters compete for airwave space in the saturated FM range, in detriment to AM wavebands with a poorer sound quality.
This July, scientists will launch four rockets from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, Va, for a five-minute journey some 100 miles up into the atmosphere.
The Van Allen radiation belts are a hazardous environment, full of 'killer' electrons that can be lethal to orbiting satellites.
Scientists use innovative Radio Aurora Explorer satellite to discover conditions that cause disruptions in space-based communication and navigation signals.
Massive waves in giant magnetic holes on the surface of the Sun have been discovered for the first time by solar scientists from the University of Sheffield and QueenÂ´s University Belfast, something that will bring experts a step closer to unlocking the secrets of the Sun.
A surge of charged plasma particles from a massive solar eruption has brushed off the Earth's northern pole, producing auroras and disrupting some radio communications, according to NASA scientists.
Arecibo Observatory -- The Arecibo Observatory is part of the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (NAIC), a national research center operated by Cornell University under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation (NSF). The NSF is an independent federal agency whose aim is to promote scientific and engineering progress in the United States. NSF funds research and education in most fields of science and engineering. Additional support is provided by the National...

- The protecting weather-shed built around the entrance to a house.
- The roofed-over space between the kitchen and the sleeping-quarters in a logging-camp, commonly used as a storeroom.
