[Frontier Letter] Imaging high-latitude plasma density irregularities resulting from particle precipitation: spaceborne L-band SAR and EISCAT observations

Particle precipitation represents an important source of irregular plasma density structures in the high-latitude ionosphere. Sato et al. (2018) used Synthetic Aperture Radar to image the small-scale plasma density irregularities under high levels of ionization of up to approximately 300 km over Tromsø, Norway. The irregular electron density is characterized by tens of kilometers of band-like structures aligned in the east-west direction with small patch-like structures. This study presents the… Read more

[Frontier Letter] Constraining the magnetic properties of ultrafine- and fine-grained biogenic magnetite

Studies of biogenic magnetite and magnetotactic bacteria are gaining increasing prominence, spanning the disciplines of earth and planetary science and biological science. Zhang and Pan (2018) review the characterization of magnetite associated with magnetoferritins and magnetotactic bacteria. The former relates to important potential biomedical applications whereas the latter applies to the continued effort to define modern magnetotactic bacteria populations and magnetofossils in deep geologic time. This article was a contribution to the special issue of “Recent Advances in Geo-, Paleo- and Rock- Magnetism”. Read more
