Investigate the state of the ionosphere that leads to the growth of plasma bubbles.

Description

Study the formation of ionospheric plasma bubbles, which are the main sources of radar reflections in the equatorial region. Investigate the state of the ionosphere that leads to the growth of plasma bubbles. The relationships between plasma irregularities in satellite altitude and the radio scintillations observed in the equatorial region of the ionosphere will also be studied.
