Modelling the light-ion densities in the ionosphere

S. M. Stankov

Abstract


A steady-state theoretical model is used to obtain variations of the H+/O+ and He+/O+ density ratios in the upper ionosphere at middle latitudes. The model results are compared with the existing data from satellite measurements. Analytical functions are constructed approximating the latitude and altitude variations of these ratios.
