A Comparison of Conjugate Auroral Electojet Indices
Entry ID: NSF-ANT10-43621


Summary
Abstract: The auroral electrojet index (AE) is used as an indicator of geomagnetic activity at high latitudes representing the strength of auroral electrojet currents in the Northern polar ionosphere. A similar AE index for the Southern hemisphere is not available due to lack of complete coverage the Southern auroral zone (half of which extends over the ocean) with continuous magnetometer observations. ...
