Type

FIELDWORK

Research/Observation Title

Study of energetic electron precipitaions from the radiation belt based on the VLF/LF standard wave measurement

Science Summary (common)

[outline] Observation of manmade transmitter signals in the very low frequency (VLF) and low frequency (LF) ranges is a useful remote-sensing tool to detect ionization phenomena in the ionospheric D-region. The ionization is caused by precipitations of high energy electrons from space,this observation plans to measure the transmitter signals in the radio frequency range of 40 to 100 kHz and survey the loss of trapped electrons from the radiation belt into the atmosphere during the geomagnetic storm and substorm.
