How might the thermosphere and ionosphere react to an extreme space weather event?

This chapter explores how the thermosphere and ionosphere (T-I) might respond to extreme solar events. Three different scenarios are considered: (1) an increase in solar UV and EUV radiation for a number of days, (2) an extreme enhancement in the solar X-rays and EUV radiation associated with a flare, and (3) an extreme CME driving a geomagnetic storm. Estimating the response to the first two scenarios is reasonably well defined, and although they would certainly impact the T-I system, those impacts could potentially be miti ...

Vertical Thermospheric Density Profiles From EUV Solar Occultations Made by PROBA2 LYRA for Solar Cycle 24

A new data set of summed neutral N2 and O number density profiles, spanning altitudes between 150 and 400\ km, and observed during Northern Winter from 2010 to 2016 is presented. The neutral density profiles are derived from solar occultation measurements made by the 0.1\textendash20\ nm Zr channel on the Large Yield Radiometer (LYRA) instrument on board Project for Onboard Autonomy 2 (PROBA2). The climatology derived from the vertical profiles is consistent with that predicted by the NRLMSISE-00 mode ...

Seasonal variability in global eddy diffusion and the effect on neutral density

We describe a method for making single-satellite estimates of the seasonal variability in global-average eddy diffusion coefficients. Eddy diffusion values as a function of time were estimated from residuals of neutral density measurements made by the Challenging Minisatellite Payload (CHAMP) and simulations made using the thermosphere-ionosphere-mesosphere electrodynamics global circulation model (TIME-GCM). The eddy diffusion coefficient results are quantitatively consistent with previous estimates based on satellite dr ...

Aerodynamic Analysis Based on Challenging Minisatellite Payload Satellite Lift-to-Drag Measurements

A lift-to-drag ratio analysis is performed based on accelerometer measurements made by the Challenging Minisatellite Payload satellite to investigate the nature of gas-surface interactions taking place in orbit. The results described are for the November\ 2002 satellite yaw maneuver. At this time, the satellite flew at a mean altitude of 407\ km. Two types of gas\textendashsurface interaction are considered in the analysis. The first is a cosine (fully diffuse) reflection model with incomplete energy acc ...

Semi-Empirical Satellite Accommodation Model for Spherical and Randomly Tumbling Objects

Orbits of launch-vehicle upper stages and spheres were observed by U.S. Air Force Space Command, and the resulting observations were converted by the Space Analysis Office to fitted ballistic coefficients by comparing the observed orbit with an orbit predicted by an atmospheric-drag model. The ballistic coefficients contain signals that result from atmospheric variability not captured by the model as well as signals that correspond to changes in the satellite-drag coefficient. For objects in highly elliptical orbits with ...

Dynamic gas-surface interaction modeling for satellite aerodynamic computations

Drag coefficients are a large source of uncertainty when predicting the aerodynamic forces on orbiting satellites. Accordingly, the focus of this research is to improve the fidelity of drag modeling by investigating the nature of gas-surface interactions in low earth orbit. The author has investigated to what extent oxygen adsorption can influence the parameters of drag coefficient models, most notably the energy accommodation coefficient.
