Analysis and Applications of Ionospheric Measurements from the Integrated Miniaturized Electrostatic Analyzer
Since the beginning of the space age electrostatic instruments have aided us in understanding the near Earth space environment. Measurements of the ionosphere are valuable in understanding geomagnetic phenomena and can be used to improve space weather forecasting in order to reduce the societal impact of extreme space weather. The Integrated Miniaturized Electrostatic Analyzer (iMESA) was a satellite based parallel plate electrostatic analyzer that characterized the ion density and ion temperature in the vicinity of the spacecraft and quantified the electric potential of the spacecraft with ...
