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

Paleomagnetic studies on single crystals separated from the middle Cretaceous Iritono granite

Granitic rocks could be good recorders of deep-time geomagnetic field behavior, but paleomagnetic measurements on whole-rock granitic samples are often disturbed by the presence of unstable multi-domain magnetite. Kato et al. (2018) demonstrated that single plagioclase crystals separated from granitic rocks can be reliable recorders of the geomagnetic paleointensity by a series of rock-magnetic measurements and Tsunakawa-Shaw paleointensity experiments on plagioclase crystals of the middle Cretaceous Iritono granite, for which… Read more
